    The forest isn't necessarily a wide last, just that it allows those with wide feet to get a wider fit whereas other lasts don't have the option

    I think the forest last has a very nice shape. Not too bulbous, just right.

    I can't comment on Forest beyond saying that my Forest-last boots fit very nicely. I'm only out of the game if you lot decide on Rain or Simpson.

    Thats the boot in question. I think we are considering the Forest last and possible rubber sole? I am still open to adjustments but thats what we have thus far

    I have that boot in Polo suede and leather sole in Rain last. One of my favorite shoes, just love the model.

    I think Carmina should develop more wide last for us folks with wider feet, I really like the Rain last if it came in wider width it will be perfect.

    Forest sounds most reasonable, considering folks want wides. I still have a huge hardon for leather soles, but this seems like a sufficiently rugged/casual boot that really any sole would work.
    I only have one pair of US shoes (AE Daltons), and that's exactly how I sized down for Forest. Equally comfortable for both pairs.

    I'd also prefer a leather sole but that isn't a deal breaker for me.
