    Yes MTO.
    Thats the only way that I know to get them on 8695 last as the RTW version is typically on 7000

    Rapidly becoming my go to shoe.

    As for lasts: 9795 & 7000 are my preferred. The 8695 just does not work for my feet, unfortunately.

    Hi everyone,

    Long time lurker, first time poster hoping for sizing assistance. I’m looking into purchasing my first pair of John Lobb boots but uncertain on sizing. I’m a wider 10.5 d on the brannock, wear a 10.5e on ae’s 5 last, and have found a 9.5 carmina jumper boot in the soller last feels a bit snug but nothing unreasonable.

    I can’t decide if I’d be best suited for a 9.5 or 10e on the 8695 boot last and would really appreciate opinions.

    Thanks, all!

    I would think 9.5 would be the much closer size for you--I don't know too many folks on this forum who wear their Lobbs only a half size below brannock.

    I'm US 11D (same size in pretty much all AE lasts) and wear a 10E UK in JLP and CJ; 10.5E in EG and G&G; and I'd argue the 10E stretches out a little to be a tad too big volume wise.

    I would guess a 10E on you would be too large, unless you've got a lot of foot volume/instep.

    I like to size up on the 8000 last, too, vs the 7000.

    Thanks for chiming in. My best course seems to be to wait to get into a shop for a proper fitting so I'll do that. Appreciate the information!

    Lobb usually has a sale just before Christmas and just before Fathers Day. Call and see and let us know if you have time.

    Nice to know, what do you have in 11E that you're willing to part with?

    Just to correct the record, the Lobbs I have are 10.5E sold as 11.5D US. I do have one pair of 11E8000 Chambord boots, sold as 12D US. I was thinking about the US equivalent, not the marked UK size. Sorry for the confusion.
