Hi @Carmina can you please advise me which of your lasts would be 'similar' to the Crockett & Jones 341 (Harlech) last but with a little more space and width at the toe? I want to order a couple of pairs of shell cordovan boots at your next MTO day but am really having trouble figuring out which lasts to try and I do not live near a Carmina store. Many thanks. :)
Hi, I can't compare our lasts with the Crockett & Jones because I don't have the exact measurements of their lasts. What you can do is contact with custumer service in order to check what last is more appropiate to your foot, if you tell them your measurements they will provide you your perfect last.

Yes, the problem is that i ordered the shoes in March or April… they already had to be re-made because of quality control and now they are again almost 1 month late..
We're sorry about your delay but our quality standards are very high in order to provide the best shoes. Contact me privatly with your order number to re-check the order status.

Yes, absolutely, I find it also good. And the customer service was also pleasant.

So after spending more time with them I'm fairly certain my split toes on Detroit are the most comfortable shoes I own. For any Detroit wearers here- what other lasts have you found to be comfortable to you? I love the extra instep room and the extra space/volume.

(Close-ish second for me is Alden's Barrie last in same size I take detroit)

That's a ridiculously long wait...they should be able to fix that in days, not months, regardless of all the "custom orders" take time BS

I find Alden's Plaza last more similar to Detroit than Barrie. For me 7.5 Detroit = 8.5D Plaza, with the later being a bit roomier. Sticking to Carmina, I like Oscar (not quite as roomy as Detroit) and for boots, Llubi (quite a bit roomier than Detroit)

Proof that lasts fit everyone differently. I can barely even squeeze into Plaza in my Detroit size and it quickly becomes uncomfortable.

Hi, Qayyum

LLoret last it's in the middle of inca and robert last. If you want to compare lasts go to the last comparator. Take into account that lloret last is not currently available, in the next weeks we're going to add it.

Thank you. The last may not be suitable for me…

What is the widest last at the toes? I always assumed it was one of the EEE lasts, but the last comparator makes me question that

Can anybody identify this last of Carmina? It fits me very well, and I would like a point of reference for the future.
