    I kept returning a pair of AE Strands for the same thing. I'm hoping I don't have the same issue on the boot!

    Is Olfe more narrow than Hiro last?

    Should I order same size on both last?

    Anyone got some idea, thanks.

    In both my and meermins opinion the Olfe is slightly narrower than the Hiro, I personally opted for the Ben last for my slightly wider foot. For me the Hiro fits slightly snug and the Ben perfect.

    Even EG and G&G aren't perfect. Although I don't think they would do anything too crazy

    Here are my thoughts. I'm a 9D in most US sizing, but when I sent in my foot measurements to Meermin, it was recommended that I go with an 8.5UK. In that size, the Olfe is about as perfect a last as I can find -- the shape is exactly what I like, and the fit is impeccable. The Hiro in comparison is a little looser -- it is definitely a last that will feel larger. I ordered two models in the Hiro -- a standard lace-up oxford, and a double-monk. I found that the standard lace-up oxford still fit really well and didn't have much slippage, but actually the double monks are much bigger feeling and slip a lot (so much so that I need some sort of heel insert to make them fit well). I'm not sure why the lace-up works so much better, but it may simply be b/c the laces allow me to tighten up the shoe more.

    ^^ Hiro last in UK 8.5. The Ama last will also work for you.

    FWIW I am a US8.5 and was told to go TTS in Hiro, 7.5UK

    I mentioned the lasts of the AE Leeds model and Loake chukka, too.
