    Hey Justin,

    How does the Wallingford II fit? The website says it is the most generous last fit wise, so close to TTS?

    Only stuff I have bought from you are the sneakers, and I am an 8.5D and 7.5UK seem to be fine.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would wait for Justin's input but my experience with LPB (which is just a slightly less chiseled MGF according to the website) was that you may have to size down an extra half size depending on size/instep. I'm a standard US 11D with a normal [to my knwoledge] instep and I wear 11D US in AE; 10E C&J and JLP; 10.5E EG&GG but my Sebastien in 10E UK were a little roomy and after a while once i broke them in the instep was just too much for me. I regretfully had to sell but if I were to try JF again I would opt for the 9.5E UK and I think I'd be just fine.

    Also note the Wallingford has 6 eyelets so you will have more room in the instep vs those with 5 (again, I'm stealing this from JF website).

    The MGF and LPB are the most generous, yes.

    I would take the UK7 at least. The main difference is the instep which is significantly more generous.

    I hope that this helps

    @Sdig14 FWIW as another data point I'm a 10.5D bordering on E with a high instep and wear 9.5UK in everything Justin. I have the calf/suede Wallingford and the facings close completely for me, but the shoe doesn't slip or anything. I don't think I could size down, but at the same time I don't feel there's enough room for a tongue pad, or that one's necessary. This would be a case for quarter sizes if there were any :p If you have a low volume foot and low instep I could see a7 working as Justin suggested since the shoe does have some length.
