    if you are asking what B o D stands for, its a width indicator. It goes from AA (or even AAA) that are the narrowest to EEE (or even further) that are wider.

    If you already knew that, and are asking about the diference in inches or cm, I can't help you with that.

    For my personal experience, Ferragamos tend to be narrow, so, if you have standard feet, go for E (or at least D).

    Hope it helps.

    sorry, i guess my wording of the question is completely off.
    i meant to ask does ferragamos tends to be narrow or wider.
    i usually wear D, so i guess i should be looking at a D or E, B is out of the question?

    oh yeah, I would go E. I usually can fit into D width from most makers and I usually have to go to E or EE in SF

    Ive never tried their B's. I have a b-width foot and find their D's are not terribly wide on me so I'd imagine the B's would be way too narrow for you.

    Ferragamo definitely run narrow, so if you're a solid "D" in most brands, you'll have to go to "EE" in Ferragamo. AFAIK, those are the only widths that Ferragamo have available to the market here on the west coast.

    I purchased a pair of B's by mistake once. Only the ones with pencil feet will fit into those... E or EE are the sizes you should look for, specially if they are Tramezzas

    I agree with this. I'm a D and EE in SF fits perfect.

    thx for all the answers, do SF run small or it's pretty standard?

    I am in a D in Tramezza, but the B is pretty narrow, so I would say it will not work for you.

    Oh yeah, pretty TTS, but for some odd reason, I need to size a half size up when I buy Studio line loafers, as I find they are snug. Go figure..

    B is very narrow. E or EE are more comfortable to me.
