Doodals, There are many lasts that suit me and a few that don't. If you're able to try on some real shoes you'll get a sense of what will work for you but more importantly what doesn't. A good example for me is a chat I had with @in stitches some time back about these of mine which are the same as the dark brown ones you like above, but in sueded obviously. He kindly asked about them, however, on learning the last he crossed them off any potential kop list as they wouldn't fit him as he would like. He knows his stuff so doesn't waste time and importantly money on gear that doesn't work. If you go to the great shoes threads on these boards you'll notice regular questions, advice etc regarding comparative lasts between, for example C & J, EG, Lobb, G & G, Carmina etc etc etc You could be a 10 in C & J and a 9 in Lobb, expensive mistake for someone if they don't do their homework. So, if you'll forgive the pun, you need to bench mark what last/s work for you. Those EG dub monks up there ^ are sleeker and a little looser in the heel on the 888 last than my C & G dub monks on 348 last which are very snug in the heel and a tad roomier in the forefoot. The Lobb dub monks could have been made for me, they are all the same size, but different lasts. Make sense buddy?
