    My Katmai boots are a good fit in the toe and heel. The mouth is huge though. I can get four fingers in between the shoe and my ankle. Will probably exchange for something else.

    hmm, thats a bummer. You have anything in the 8 last?

    I wear a 10D in the 5 and 8 and its fine, and either a 10.5D or 10E in the 2 last.

    I'm hoping the malvern in the 10d will be ok in light of the above. Guess I'll find out tomorrow.

    In case my Player's Shoe in snuff ends up being too tight, would anyone be interested in them? 8.5D
    It'll just be $104+ shipping

    Haha I'm glad you too are worried about the Snuff Player's being too tight. I'm trying to get through some stuff at work so I can get home to these shoes - but I'm real worried the Player's are going to be tight. Unfortunately I'm a 7.5D -- I can't imagine a 8.5D would work even if the 7.5D is too tight.

    Hope they work out for you!

    Mine fit good in the toe and a little loose in the heel. Mouth is a little large but I have skinny ankles as it is. I can't tighten the laces all the way yet because they are stiff, and I can't find anything wrong with them at all. I like them but not exactly the same as the Vinci which they were a replacement for. Still a good deal and my first suede boot. Sounds like yours definitely has too much material in the uppers. I would exchange them for something your comfortable with and like ASAP.

    Nothing in the 8 last but have 5 shoes on the #5 last. I stayed with the #1 last in the beginning because they all fit so well. Honestly in hindsight the #5 fits me even better. The Black Hills I had to down size by a half size, every thing else is TTS and fits me perfectly on the #5 last. LOL I'm almost afraid to try another last, if I liked it then I'd be tempted to purchase even more shoes. Good luck with the malvern sounds like it may fit you and they do seem to work for some people. I really wanted them to work for me but learned a long time ago if it doesn't fit right then I seldom wear it.

    Shoes on the same last can fit differently depending on the material, calf, shell, suede, rough waxy leather, etc.

    Calf PA and Strand fit fine but the Neumok, same size, is a little big (funny as the SA told me they run small).

    SA told me "no difference in Neumok" and mine are a bit bigger but I'm thinking its because its unlined.

    Here's my haul from the 2 for $200 sale. Vinci in black and Cerreto in brown. Both are marked as seconds on the sole, but I can't find anything wrong with them other than shop wear. Both have creasing - the Vinci more noticeable - and the Cerreto has some light scratches. But I ordered matching polish for the Cerretos.

    Anyway, happy with both of these. It'll be a nice change for me; I wouldn't have tried either of these styles if not for the sale. And they both fit great, TTS. Anyone know what last these are on?

    The one shoe I regret missing is the Bel Air. Had them on my list, but must have sold before I got to them.

    The PA and Neumok do NOT fit the same.

    Can't argue with that, great kop! :slayer:

    The lasts were unique for the Seven Collection, I have found no info about them.

    They sure did a nice job on the sole treatment on the Seven line. Two nice scores!
