    WELTED LASTS

    65 (5) Last: Allen Edmonds' infamous 5 last is their most popular and classic fitting last. It is the longest last they make, and it is quite narrow. Many users swear it's ideal for arched feet, and they suggest it for those with long and narrow feet. If you don't fall into this category, try going 1/2 size smaller and 1 size wider to accommodate your feet to the last.
    Models: Cambridge, Cronmok, Fifth Avenue, Fifth Street, Heritage Golf, McAllister, McGregor, McTavish, Neumok, Park Avenue, Shreveport, Strand, Strandmok

    73 (3) Last: Allen Edmonds' 73 last features a full fit measurement in the ball of the foot, a tapered toe, and it is roomy across the forefoot.
    Models: Strand Golf, Walton

    79 (9) Last: Allen Edmonds' 79 last features a tapered back portion that pushes the foot forward to fit low across the top of the foot rather than the instep. Users with narrow heels report that the shoes do not slip despite their foot being pushed forward.
    Models: Cody, Randolph

    97 (7) Last: Allen Edmonds' 97 last is universally recognized as the best fit for the average foot. It features a soft and slightly pointed toe that is still quite roomy. It lays flatter in the toe area. Some users find it a bit wide and size down 1 width.
    Models: Grayson, MacNei, MacNeil 2.0

    108 (8) Last: Allen Edmonds' 108 last features an elongated forefoot and a tapered and flatter toebox. It is similar to the 222 (2) last. Users report it being TTS in the forefoot, but quite roomy in the heel.
    Models: Carlyle, Clark Street, Delray, LaSalle, Mora 2.0, Steen Vernon

    201 Last: Allen Edmonds' 201 last features a higher cone, providing more room for those with a higher instep. The toe is quite roomy. The website states that this last features a chiseled toe, however many users don't agree with this description.
    Models: Bartlett, Jefferson 2.0, Hopkinson, First Avenue, Overlord, Rogue, Warwick

    222 (2) Last: Allen Edmonds' 222 last features an elongated toe and a higher instep. Overall, this last fits narrow in the forefoot.
    Models: Norwich

    234 (4) Last: Allen Edmonds' 234 is modeled after the 97 last for the best fit for the average foot, but with a less pronounced point and a subtly squared-off toe. Along with the 678, it’s considered one of the widest and roomiest lasts Allen Edmonds makes. Some people believe it runs a little long.
    Models: Addison

    333 Last: Allen Edmonds’ 333 last features a slightly elongated profile and softer line at the outer edge, with a square shape and chiseled toe. Users describe it as a bit wide. It's slightly long in the toebox, and longer overall (though some is ornamental length). It's longer and a bit wider than the 65, though it tapers more sharply from the widest point at the ball of the foot. This makes for a longer and more sculpted toe. It also has less volume above the foot than the 65 or 201 lasts. It usually fits true to size.
    Models: Flatiron, Franciscan, Larchmont, University

    444 Last: Currently, the only model Allen Edmond offers in the 444 last is the ORD Bycicle, which is a shoe specifically designed for frequent flyers; the last features a roomier fit especially in the toe box.
    Models: ORD Bycicle

    511 (1) Last: Allen Edmonds’ 555 last is similar to the 7 last from heel to the ball of the foot, but it features a more rounded, fuller fitting toe. It’s a popular last for boots because of the extra room in the toe box. However, users with wide feet suggest choosing the 201 last (more roomy, especially in the instep) over the 511, or sizing up half a size in the 511 last.
    Models: Long Branch, Bellevue, Bradley, Dalton, Shelton, Dundee & Dundee 2.0, Leeds & Leeds 2.0, Weybridge Golf, Wilbert.

    511G (1) Last: technically speaking, Allen Edmonds’ 511G last is roomier that the 511, as it is cut that way to accommodate an insole. However, once you do add the insole, it does become narrower than the traditional 511. It features a rounded toe for comfortable all-day wear and easy pairing with heavier and casual athletic socks.
    Models: ATL, LAX, LGE, MKE, Double Eagle Golf, First Cut Golf, Haskell Golf, Redan Golf, Voyager

    606 Last: Allen Edmonds’ 606 last features a broad, flat toe providing a wide forefoot. The instep transition and cone rise is farther back than a typical Allen Edmonds last. Some users find the heel extra tight. It fits true to size.
    Models: Ascher, Patriot

    678 Last: Allen Edmonds’ 678 last is the 234 last, built with a fuller fit and additional depth to accommodate an orthotic insole. Users find it a bit tight in the forefoot compared to other lasts, but removing the insole produces a relatively roomy fit for the size.
    Models: Ashton, Benton

    1757 Last: Allen Edmonds’ 1757 last features a rather wide forepart compared to the 65 last. The toe down view has a rounded profile for a fuller shape similar to the B34. It’s the ideal last for those looking for comfort in the toe and forefoot areas. It seems to be a bridge between the B34 and 201 last.
    Models: Boone

    1943 Last: Allen Edmonds’ 1943 last is a derivative of the 333 last. It retains the heel of the 333, and it adjusts it by widening at the ball of the foot and reducing the toe length.
    Models: Yorktown, Cornwallis, Leiden, Leiden Weave

    2042 Last: Allen Edmonds’ 2042 last is sleeker than the 606 slip-on last; it features a full forepart and tapered back section. Some people find it roomy but with a quite tight heel.
    Models: Acheson, Lake Bluff, Lake Forest

    B34 Last: Allen Edmonds’ B34 last is a typical 'boot' last. It features a wider forefoot for more room up front and a higher toe box for added volume and comfort from a profile perspective.
    Models: Normandy, Odenwald, Sturgis

    JN9 Last: Allen Edmond’s JN9 was created for golf shoes. The last has a modern, squarer toe and broader toe box to allow for the use of an orthotic.
    Models: Muirfield Village
