    Isn't the 360 the round-toe version of the 358? (Or is that the 359?) On my foot, the 358 is a little roomier than the 348, so it would make sense for the 360 to be a little less snug, too. Very tempting last!

    At least when you post self-promoting links, you do it with good looking pictures.

    I like the scotchgrains.

    Thank you for this.

    I accept the self promotion 'smear' with good grace [​IMG] ...but as you have also alluded, I actually attempt to only highlight the spectrum of lasts and styles for the 'benefit' of the forum.

    Regards,

    Graham

    I'm kidding. I love browsing your listings for fun. You take excellent photos & have high quality shoes.

    The 360 and 348 are just beautiful lasts. Do post more pictures! [​IMG]

    Are those models new? I can't find all of them in the C&J catalogue.

    What about flat feet in C&J?

    Some of the C&J lasts, like the 240, are high-arched (like the Alden Barrie). If your foot is flat enough, it feels like there is something under your foot, just forward the heel.

    Has anyone (besides jmonroestyle, who thinks some models of the 341 might work for flat feet) taken note of which C&J lasts are better for feet with high arches, and which lasts are better for flat feet?


    I have rediculously flat feet and the 337 last fits me fine. I wear size 11E

    To those with a Hallam, how does it tend to fit (aside from being narrow)? I'm currently wearing AE Park Ave 7.5EEE and am thinking of getting the Hallam

    The Hallam is on the 360 last, which is narrow even for some people with a US D width...I might be wrong, but the Hallam could be a very uncomfortable proposition for you....

    Hallam is on the 348, not the 360...

    But I agree that it's narrow.

    There was mention that the 360 was for the Japanese market, but that doesn't sound right if it is as narrow as you're making out. The Asian market tends toward the narrow(er) heel and wide (splayed) feet shape. It's one reason why the Alden modified last is so big in Japan.

    In general, as with the poster above, I'm in the E to EEE range of width. US10/UK9 wide. Which, if any, of the C&J lasts will work for folk like us?

    And I really do love looking at your photos! Please keep posting!

    Thanks.

    hmm, I really like Hallem's look, so if I have a E, is there no luck for me on the 348 last?

    What if I size up and wear an E?

    so 7.5EEE US --->7.5F UK or 7F UK?

    thanks!
