Woodlore to be precise.
Any idea how they fit an Olfe or Rui last?
Both the same.
Can anyone with experience with AE's #8 last help me out? If I'm a 7.5 in AE, what size would I be in Meermi's Olfe and Hiro lasts?
I did email Meermin, but they suggested a size based on the length of my foot, and my high instep forces me to size up. Unfortunately, I have really fat feet.
To clarify I like that the JAB trees are not the combination shoe trees, they are the full.
Unfortunately I have no experience with Meermin (though I hope to soon!)
Still stuned by that new group buy MTO! I am counting down the days till delivery ;-)
Also to clarify. Allen Edmonds and JAB shoe trees are made by the same manufacturer, Woodlore.
I had the same size in both, I just had to stretch the New Rey, width-wise. Remember everyone's experience could be different.
May 2013. Yeesh. I'll probably forget I even have them on order way before then.
Thanks man, Luisa just got back to me with the same info so I won't blame you if they don't fit!
Will be a great surprise then ;-)
I checked through the thread and just want to confirm: 10.5D on the Barrie last would most likely be a UK10 on Olfe?
10.5D on the Barrie fits pretty well; a touch roomy in the toe box and heel, but the length and comfort are good. Thanks!
I know someone posted a sizing guide in a previous page that Luisa sent and I tried measuring my foot according to that to ask her if her recommended size was still the best fit for me.
I wear 10.5D in AE and 10D in BM pretty comfortably and she recommended that I go with a UK 9.5 for the Classic Collection and a UK 10 for the Linea Maestro. Do those sizes seem about right to you guys? Also, out of curiosity, how come the Linea Maestro requires a half-size increase?
I've ordered the double monks from Meermin in a UK 9.5 and am wondering if I should do a UK 10, based on her recommendations, for the group buy that Terror has set up since that one is being made to the Linea Maestro standards.
Thanks for the input guys!
