    Not my shoes, but I liked them enough to save photos.

    Check my tumblr. Will upload last comparison when I have time.

    Generally speaking, loafer last for Lopez runs wide and deep at the heel and slightly wider than 7000/8000, which have the same width. 7000/8000 runs tolerable narrow and much more narrower/noticeable in cap toes

    Nice collection. Love JL 2009 and plan to get an bespoke pair with pattern switch inside out so the balmoral line is inside/inward facing.

    I love the 7000 last as a skinny foot myself, but it does tend to have plenty of width around the ball area before and abrupt narrowing. The 8000 tends to more roundness. The 1105 last is similar to the 7000 but with less aggressive transitions, for lack of a better descriptor. It's billed as the "new" 7000.

    I only have cap toes, so I couldn't comment on any others.

    You wouldn't happen to know which shoes these Lasts typically go with would you?
