Hm, well, I own one pair of Rain that I went TTS in, but I actually need a tongue pad with them due to the high instep. I have an odd foot, kind of lower volume and fairly average width at the ball, but with a lot of toe splay so I gravitate towards lasts with spacious toeboxes.
I haven't tried Simpson, sadly, but I'm thinking I would be good with a 9UK. I have the length and width of a 9UK but the volume of and 8.5 or even a 8. I went in my last order with 9UK Rain and I feel that I will need a tongue pad later to not close completely the eyelets. I'm thinking 8.5 UK could be a better fit.I had a pair of +0.5 size simpsons that were a bit too spacious for my tastes, so I'd say, for me personally: Rain size = Simpson size = Forest size.
9UK in the Uetam is a great fit for me.
I know but what if... you can't try them and can't order different sizes cause it's hard to return them due to customs?The best way to know is to actually wear and see what fits best
Nice! Sounds like you have a high instep, right?It all depends on your foot, really.
I take a UK9 in most shoes, and I take a UK9 in the Oscar last.
However, I need to take a UK9.5 in the Rain last. A UK9 in the Rain last is wearable, but it's not an ideal fit and a UK9.5 is more comfortable for me, both at the ball of the foot and over the instep.
