    General Q regarding the NYC showroom. Is it possible to try on different lasts and sizes there? Or is it more for B2B clients?

    Do they have extended widths there?

    You live in newyork go to there showroom or make appointment with Mr Falco he has all the widths. Hell if you communicate with them they will ship you the size also to try. If you don’t live in newyork.

    I actually think that a UK 11 F will fit you...they can also make shoes/boots in the even wider G fitting upon request...

    Will they do last modifications? Would love for some more G&G pairs but my instep is too damn high for them.

    My best fits are Lobb 7000 UK10 EE (F width), Bonafe 804 10G, and Vass P2 43.5 H. I'm pretty sure that lengthwise 10.5 is correct, but I'm concerned about narrow toe boxes, so would definitely need to try on first.

    Thanks all. I will look into visiting.

    @peppercorn78 I take that back....try UK 10.5 F or G fitting. I know for a fact that they may not have an F at the NYC showroom. But if you go there you may glean valuable info with regards to sizing.

    They actually sent me out a test pair for sizing purposes.

    @peppercorn78 you and I are typically either .5 in length or a size in width apart on almost every last and maker.

    I took a UK 10.5E fitting on MH71 perfectly...for reference....

    I don’t know where PS ask GG to cut corners as the other usual GG still had the 1400+ old msrp (discount to around 400, but again only in store). Also best call if you’re going to order think they probably f’ed up on size, pretty sure it’s standard U.K. sizing instead of whatever they said on description

    You can send an email to Mr. Defalco at [email protected] or call at 516-382-2620 for an appointment and see what sizes they have in stock for you to try.
    The showroom by appointment is at
    130 West 57th St, Suite 2C, Manhattan.
