    Perfect - best to place your feet on a piece of paper and place a mark straight down from your heel and again with your longest toe - same with the widest part of your foot. Measure between the two points for Length and Width. I will then compare these to our internal measurements we have and advise the best size for you.

    Got my shoes in two days.

    My experience of the AS Exclusive 7WK last is to size down a FULL size for best fit.

    I.e. US9D = UK8?

    Traditionally, a US 9D= UK 8.5E. (US "D" width is medium; in UK "E" is the designation for medium width)

    In my experience, in the 7WK last, go for the UK 8E

    The AS Exclusive 7WK last is said to be FX fitting. Is that about the US equivalent of an E width?

    Got it, thanks! It was their advice to size down .5 from your usual (UK) size that I had doubts about. Fwiw, I'm a US9D, but take a UK8 (E or F, depending on the maker) most of the time. I've never had to size down to a 7.5 in anything, including Tricker's country lasts (UK8.5 for Stows on the 4497 and UK8 for Bourtons on the 4444).

    im always a 12D in US sizes, and i have G&Gs in an 11 and carminas in an 11 as well.

    but i have C&Js and zegnas that i needed in a 10.5. as well i just had to return a pair of sutors that were an 11 and were too big. so i wasnt surprised when they told me to go for a 10.5 in the coe.

    ill find out soon. :)

    ok, i measured my feet. i think i did it right. at the longest and widest part of each foot, i got:

    R - 11 3/8 x 4.5 inches

    L - 11.5 x 4 3/8 inches

    i wonder if that means im really an 11.5 US technically, but ive never had an 11.5 US fit me afair :confused:

    yeah, its a pain tho, cuz when buying online its hard to know what is gonna fit. i end up inevitably doing a lot of exchanging. :(

    i got the AS coe, its on the way. or it should be anyway. HEY ROUSE!! WHERE R MY SHOOOOS??!??!?!??!!?

    FPOS should've sent you a Fed-Ex tracking number.

    I'm on the East Coast and it took 2 days.

    I have nothing but good things to say about AFPOS (Julian + Sarah). Swift communication and excellent customer service.
