    Do you have medium-wide feet?

    I have medium-narrow feet and feel that sizing ONE whole size down is best.

    idk really. ive always been a standard 12D in US sizing, but ive never had a shoe that felt too wide. so i guess i lean more towards the medium-wide. but the thing is, on the shoes i wear a 10.5 in, the issue was more that the 11s were too long, and my heel was slipping out.

    For the 7WK last, I was recommended to sized down 1/2 size by Sarah, based on submitting my foot tracing measurements.

    Based on that I had MTO a pair of suede brogue, but find it too lose and now use a gel insole to achieve optimal fit.

    This time around, for my Bannister, I went a whole size and the fit is spot on.

    I look for a suede chucka, mainly for cold weather use, and find to AS models on sales HAVANT and REDGRAVE.
    How would you describe the difference?

    The AS Havant has a slightly lighter weight sole and natural welt and heel stack and the AS Redgrave is slightly more substantial - both use the same suede and lining but the AS Redgrave have an oval cut out inside showing the style and size and is AS Exclusive spec - both very nice.
