    Hello gentlemen,

    I am considering the purchase of a pair of Grensons (I'm late, I know) from Bennie's Shoes. After searching a bit through the archives I couldn't find a reference to their fit. Furthermore the lack of a name or last on this website makes it hard to really find a reference. So I thought about asking around here what the general consensus is on their fit is. I wear a pair of 10.5 E C&J Audley's on the 337 last, could go down to 10 E in retrospective though. So how do they compare? Or, does anyone know whether there are some oxfords (so, without the brogueing and possibly on a more chisseled-toe last) out there (leather sole)?

    You really need a Grenson last since they're not all the same. I find the Grenson lasts are shaped much differently than the C&J 337 last. On the Grensons, narrower heel, less elongated, and narrower around the ball of the foot.
