    Unfortunately not, we only have what is in stock now. We will change this functionality to reflect this, our apologies.

    @Afinepairofshoes Do you stock any wide fittings these days? If not, do you recommend any more generous lasts?

    I have the same question. It's especially hard for us Australians because return shipping on a too-narrow pair is so expensive (if returns are even accepted).

    @FredAstaire1899 What are you wearing at the moment? Have you tried Carmina or Meermin? I have not and the width is the only thing holding me back.

    I used to wear 7 UK shoes in regular widths, although they were always too tight in the width. After my mid 20s, my foot got a fair amount wider, however not much longer. I've had shoes custom made since, mostly because I found a convenient and well priced online resource. Nevertheless, I'd probably fit a 7.5 UK in a wide fit or 7 UK double wide depending on the length of the last. I've been tempted to try Allen Edmonds EE fitting.

    I have a question for AFPOS.

    If AS is still making exclusive-grade shoes for Kingsman, why aren’t they offering it to other stockists?

    Hi, AS make lots of shoes and are very busy as a factory, but have been looking at their strategy for a while and decided to draw the Exclusive and Country lines to a halt. There may well be another offering in the future.

    Are the kingsman boots a different a different spec to the regular line? £525 (on Mr Porter) is a substantial increase.

    How does the AS 87 last fit? Looking to try out the Cambridge. 9E Conistons fit me well with thick socks.

    Also how do the Coniston and Cambridge compare?

    Any feedback from AFPOS own brand?
    Portugal made, I looked at the William Oxford. Better than Meermin?

    I'm almost sure these are made by Carlos Santos, these are way better than Meermin so you won't regret.
