    Hi gents

    I've been wearing in my first pair of St C, and the fit was not stellar, so I've commissioned a personal last and a pair of trial shoes.

    What would everyone recommend regarding the trial shoes? How many wears would it take to get an idea of the fitting? What other things I should keep in mind as well?

    The shoes aren't really finished enough for you to wear them outside, but they give you a good idea about the fit. I had a personalized last made once on an order and skipped the trial shoes. Regret the decision and got the trial shoes on a second order (made with adjustments to that personalized last). The new last fits much better, and I had a better idea going into the order given the fit of the trail pair.
