Wow I think we have the same feet. "11D US, with narrow heels, low volume overall, and need a decent amount of room in the toebox" What lasts do you find to be the best fit for you personally?I can't recall if I posted this here or on the main Carmina thread, but if not here is my experience with Carmina last size.
For reference, I'm an 11D US, with narrow heels, low volume overall, and need a decent amount of room in the toebox. I own a lot of Carmina shoes, covering at least 7 lasts; typically I'm 10UK in Carmina, but style and last make a big difference. The comparisons below all assume the same size for comparison.
Note that "highest" and "lowest" on instep refer to total volume (3D), not just height (2D).
The last is my attempt to group lasts by "families" of size. I wouldn't be shocked if someone wore the same size in Simpson and Oscar, or Oscar and Soller, but Simpson to Soller is a pretty big leap. Yellow boxes represent near neighbors in size, while blue boxes represent the likely range for most (but not as close as the yellow boxes).
Feel free to critique/correct. I limited the the lasts I thought I could talk to from experience. Of note, I don't own anything in Rain but have tried it on enough to know that it likely doesn't work for me, and why.
