    Alright, so Nieman's didn't have any of the Prestige line. Does anybody know which lasts the Langton and the Philip II are made on? I believe the Philip II is the 7000? Anyway, I tried the Langton on and thought it was maybe the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. Does anybody know how consistently the lasts for the Langton and Philip II are sized? Thanks, HS. edit: And does anybody know if www.johnlobb.com includes all of their models? I don't see anything on the 8000 last.

    I very much doubt that the Lobb site includes all their models. If I were you, I would travel to NYC, London or Paris to see more Lobb models. Or even to WIlkes Bashford in SF, which carries the Prestige line. You quite clearly can afford it.

    The website does not include all their models, but from the pictures on the site, it seems to me that the following models are on the 8000: Sutton, Avon, Welham, Romsey, Bourne(?)

    The Bourne is indeed based on the 8000 last:

    The Derwent double monks are also on the 8000.
