Well I like Dainite studded the least (read dislike) and am at a point where I won't get makeups that have those soles fwiw

Just did a revamp of the Löf & Tung MTO page. Hope you guys enjoy! There are a few bugs I need to sort out but nothing major I think.

Let me know if you have any feedback!

You're missing some lasts (C?) and soles (commando?)

The colour options are also really weird because the list is below and pictures show the name and style.

Looks really nice though. Do you really stock all the shell colours or are these the ones you can source?

9.5E Brannock
Size 9 Viberg, Meermin Hiro
Size 9E Grant Stone Leo (tight with thin socks/not ideal)
Size 9.5E AE 65 Last
Size 9E AE 511 Last (sloppy Heel fit)

Rui and Barrie don't work for me, too narrow in the pinkies, and if i go to E the heel is sloppy.

I would say start at UK8.5. The 363MOD is a wide last, probably similar to Viberg but with a higher instep. Likely the highest out of any others you mentioned. I think the toe room should be sufficient for you though (maybe a tad less than 1035 but close) as it sounds like that's the limiting factor. Since you are working through a GMTO, it's possible to shrink the instep and I typically recommend that for most people besides people who know they have a high instep. Hopefully this helps

I think that would be conventional wisdom, but after seeing the guy on reddit say that the tarnsjo enzos were tight on him and he went down half a size from his bergs. That being said i have a large instep which is why E width Barrie and Regular trubalance are still snug on me. I dont recall a time where going a full size down has ever worked out for me.

Strange, my experience is exactly the opposite.
After a while of walking, I feel the lack of a midsole and I feel it mainly in the ball of my feet. Initially, I thought it was the break-in but after a while, I began paying attention and realized it was the lack of a midsole.

The other person that said they were in hasn't said anything, so maybe 2 more?
On the sizing, I'm going with 9 UK.
I wear:
Viberg 2030 & 1035: 9
C&J 325: 9 UK
Meermin Hiro: 9 UK
Meermin Rois: 8.5 UK
Alden Barrie, Van, Trubalance: 9.5D
Tricker's 4497: 9 UK
Tricker's 4444: 8.5 UK
GS Alexander: 9.5D

Is the 363MOD somewhere in-between 2030 & 1035 with the instep of C&J 325?

@kevenmee @Encore are you guys interested in joining? I'm only asking since both of you showed interest.

Seems like @Mrfuzon is in and I'm definitely in.
Yep, definitely interested.

@Leaves not sure if it's a question for you or Solegarb but finally perfected my personal last after like 4 boots. Is it possible for me to use my personal last here? Let me know if this is a question for Solegarb instead!

We are basically the same size and I take all the same. I think 325 instep is high and 363MOD is higher. I get my EB's lasted laces open to reduce this.

Holy shit 😳 Good thing I asked. The 325 instep scared me and my initial impression was I had miss-sized. I’m definitely taking your advice of getting them lasted laces open. Thank you.

Off topic; at anytime you decide to unload some footwear, feel free to pm me.....just not now lol. I’m doing 2 MTOs and possibly an Alden preorder 🤦
