This is in line with what Pepe told me when we were trying to figure out my size. I take a 9 UK in C&J 341, Septieme Largeur 174 and Barker Black Lavenum (I don't know what they call the last). I scanned a tracing of my feet with outline and inline, with a 20 cm ruler on the side for size reference. With this Pepe recommended me to size up half a size on the New Ray. While I'm on the subject, I just finished the details of my MTO order with Pepe, I'm just waiting for the invoice. Here are the details: Collection: MTO Style: 102374 - Split toe Norwegian derby Last: New rey Lasting: Hand lasted Size: 9.5 UK Upper Leather: Burgundy Shell Cordovan Lining Leather: Dark green calf Sole: Full rubber sole Edge finishing: Matching with the uppers Construction: GY·2 - Handwelted goodyear Since I was going to go with the rubber sole, I made a point out of asking Pepe about where they get them from. This is his response: Thought it might be of interest to some.
