Can I ask what your Brannock is or what sizes/widths do work best for you in other brands? (I'm assuming you didn't have that chance to try on other Junkard lasts)
*I just saw your kangaroo (natural? What's the make?)) Viberg post. I've been lusting for those. They look great. Do they fit ok?
10.5D Brannock, but have a lower volume foot.

Viberg 1035/2030 - 10
Alden Barrie - 10D
Alden Trubalance - 10C
Alden Plaza - 10.5D

Thanks! The kangaroos are on the 1035 last. Fit is great.

Does anyone have any experience with the military last? Is it related to the Munson (army) last?

I can’t help with the sizing yet as these just arrived.
Rough Out, NH last, Stichdown.
The craftsmanship is amazing. Took about 2 months to build, but well worth the wait.

Is that double leather midsole? Or just single leather where you can really see the stack?

Just did a review of Junkard's Natural Glazed Shell.

Pictures here ()
  • NH last
  • EU 41
  • Hidden Eyelets
  • 2 Row Stitchdown
  • Structured Toe
  • Junkard's rubber wedge sole
  • Standard sheepskin inner lining
  • 2-layer leather midsole
  • Natural color edge trimming
I'm thinking about blind vs "hidden eyelets" on a shell model too. Are their "hidden" eyelets just on the inside of the shell? Do you find any issues with them?

Hey guys, looking to pick up a first pair of Junkards and need some help with lasts. The three most common ones that seem to pop up are the SC, NH and ALD/TR. I much prefer the NH and ALD for their rounder toes, but they're both wider lasts and I happen to have narrow feet. I traced my feet and asked Junkard, but they just gave me a size (43D) and didn't respond to my question about which last fits my feet best. The measurements of the tracings were 27.9cm long and 9.7cm wide, which gives me 10.5-11C using a brannock conversion chart. Based on that i'd say NH and ALD are too wide for me and I should use SC, but how big is the difference between them? Also does anyone know if they have a rounder toed narrow last? The website has a few D width lasts listed but I can't find info on them. I'll ask Junkard again when their business hours roll around but any input is much appreciated.
Same exact issue I'm having. Did you ever find which last fit best for your "rounder toed narrow" feet? I'm considering going with ALD or NH (maybe MLD) and just adding in tongue and/or heel cushions to fill up the inevitable extra volume w NH or ALD (according to comments from fellow low volume foot @Jmccle2 ). I have 8.5 and 9 Viberg 1035s on the way, so it will be interesting to see how those fit volume-wise, since it sounds like they are less voluminous than the NH last. Based on my foot tracing, I was recommended 42 *in any last*, which sounds odd to me, but I'm trusting their knowledge of their own lasts.

And a general question: does anyone have experience with their Blake construction? It's an MTO option, but there's no accompanying picture illustrating how they do Blake (Rapid stitch or not, etc). I'm interested in light and flexible, more than heavy and sturdy. But if it's Blake only in name, and still weights 1.75 lbs, then not so interested
