    Any idea how they fit an Olfe or Rui last?

    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.

    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.

    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!
