    Eagerly awaiting their arrival...

    Just received my second pair from The Armoury, and I'd say they fit true-to-size. I ordered 7.5 UK on both the Simpson and Alcudia lasts and they fit my US 8.5 feet well. If anything, they are a smidge snug, but that's also consistent with my ability to sometimes move up to an 8 UK. If it's any help, UK 7.5 fits me perfectly on the C&J 348 last.

    Crap! Did we discuss how the Inca fits compared to the Simpson and Alcudia? Wider? (please say no, please say no, please say no, please say no...)

    They ARE wider...Which is actually a good thing for me as I have really wide feet. They are listed as an EE last and we find a lot of people size down half a size in these You should get a custom one made up in the Simpson. That should look awesome!

    How do Carmina fit btw?

    I don't know about anyone else's experiences but I think the Simpson's are a bit narrower than the C&J 337. For me, the 337 in 9.5 UK is too snug on my small toe; the 10UK is a bit on the wide side; and the Simpson 10UK is perfect - comfortably snug.

    I feel like I should make a Red Riding Hood comparison...

    And what is your US size? 10.5?
