    Hey guys,

    I'm going to order the Audleys in dark brown soon, and I just want to get your opinion on sizing.

    I own a pair of Pembrokes (325 last) in 8E UK, and they fit well. Should I go 8E UK for the 337-lasted Audleys?

    For comparison, I'm a well-fitting 9D in the Allen Edmonds Strand (5 last) and although I own the AE Lombard in 9D and it fits fine (I'd rather have snug- than loose-fitting shoes), a 9E would probably fit too (I have a high instep).

    The 337 feels true-to-size. 348 and 358 are a bit narrow. 325 a little loose I have the Darltons (325 last) in US12 which fit a little wide in the toe but they are wearable and have no heel slippage. I have the Hallam (348 last) in size 12D and they happen to be narrow in the toe. After a day of wear The small toes are red and my heel is all red. Ideally, I need the 348/358 last in a wide fitting or size up a half size. IME, the 337 fits tts.

    So.. if the Edgware (last 348, E) fits me quite well in 10.5, the Northcote boot (also 348 E) should fit equally well in 10.5, shouldn't it?

    In my experience, last 348 is narrower than most North America Medium or D width.

    Yes, although that may need some qualification:
    • There may be slightly variations due to the last maker, the leather being used, or the manufacturing process.
    • People make mistakes, sometimes. For instance, it's possible to get a mislabeled pair.
    • New shoes may feel differently to used ones, even if it's the same fitting.

    The risks, however, are low.

    Hey guys long time lurker, absorbing as much as I can.
    i'd like y'all advice for a younger guy looking to finally move up from what feels like payless to respectable footwear. Being on a budget I can't afford too many mistakes. I'm thinking about acquiring 3 pairs that I can use to work/jeans/black tie. The 337 last seems to be the most modern classic, and may play well for my 10D size. I should size down to 9 if I read everything right..
    The question is if you had 1k, can you find a nice brown derby(casual shoe) , black balmoral, and a chelsea. Worse case scenario you had to pick three to get you through 10 years, which models would you choose?

    Any and all help GREATLY appreciated = )

    I'm also hoping to find out about this. I have the Skyes in UK 9E and am looking at a pair of boots on the 325 and am wondering if the fit is similar. Thank for any info!
