    I can't speak for the 026 last but I bought a pair of Strands (capital last) and they have a lot of room through the vamp. I was actually wondering if anyone had any advise to solve this? I'm thinking a simple insert will do the trick. Does anyone have other suggestions?

    Do you have room on top of your feet then? I find that they have a bit of space on the sides, foot is still kept in its place, but on top and heel are nice and snug. Then again I do have a somewhat high instep.

    Yes, there's room on top of my feet - however the sides feel fine to me. Possibly my duck feet...

    The shoes is still kept in place but I'm worried about excessive creasing. Of course, I don't mind a little (obviously unavoidable) but with the amount of room I have I get the feeling the shoe will look like it's been folded in-half after a few wears.

    Just got a call from my mate. He had shoes sent from Herring, one pair was wrong size, their mistake. Postage back as required by Herring, include insurance, $70. Yes $70. Without insurance ~$60.

    Luckily Herring will reimburse postage as it is their error.

    Need to set up a shoe trying on share arrangement!

    Anyone got a UK 8.5 G I can try on for size?

    California Dreamer pointed out to me that the website:: A Fine Pair of Shoes, has the sole measurements of different shoes. Not a complete answer but useful . Would be handy If some young screen jockey with nothing to do at work, like say blahman, could collect them all into a spreadsheet with lasts shoe model brand etc.

    Anyone in Brisbane interested in any Saphir products? I was thinking of ordering some Renovateur and maybe some polish from Valmour and if I could split some shipping with an interested party that would be swell. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

    Hand wash in cold water, no wringing, dry flat in shade.

    If it says hand wash only, you should probably just hand wash it. I usually do my sweaters all at once, with some mild shampoo. Then I roll them up in multiple towels to get some of the water out, and leave to dry flat on a towel for a day. You can brush them with a horsehair brush occasionally too.
