    I am wondering what my sizing would be for Corthay Arca's. I wear a UK 8/8.5E in EG (888\82) and Steve of Leffot mentioned that would be a US8.5 in the Arca. Just wanted to see other proples experience, thanks.

    I have a wide UK9 feet, I wear CJ handgrade UK9.5, and Courtney 001 last in US11, it really depends how wise are your feet, even normal JK width will be wide in corthay size

    Thanks for your responses so far everyone.


    Size up from my UK or my US sizing?

    US sizing, sorry. that's what worked for me. my feet are on the narrow side of E...i was lucky enough to be sized by Pierre himself and he put me into his size 10, while i wear somewhere between a JL 8.5 and 9E and an EG 9 to 9.5UK/9.5 to 10US. (depending on the last)

    my guess is that if you have a legit E size foot (like, no D width would ever fit you), you may even need to go a full size up

    EDIT: US sizing!! typed UK by mistake

    Hi,

    Hope this still helps.

    I'm a size 9E in Crockett & Jones and they fit like a glove. - they go by uk size
    I'm a size 10.5 in Corthay and they fit well, but are slightly loose everywhere, but just slightly (10s were tight in the width). I recently tried on a 10 on there new wide last (just came out), and I'm a perfect ten (there's even wiggle room near the toes, width wise, but it's firm everywhere else). - they go by US sizes (from what I was told)

    I'm a 10 in most adidas, and 10 in most nike shoes. - we all have em..


    Best,
    Adam
