    Does anyone know what an EU41 on the U-Last corresponds to in US sizes? I purchased two pairs of 41's and I'm hoping they fit my size 8 feet. Should I start preparing B&S threads or will I be good to go?

    You will be just fine as long as you don't have wide or large volume feet.

    Outstanding collection and very nice to see them all together. The u-tip above is one of my all-time favourite shoes that I have seen on SF.

    Can someone explain to me the differences between the F last and the U last? I've purchased a pair of oxfords and chukka's in the U last. They fit me well enough. However, I'm wondering if such a fit would change and in what manner for the F last.

    Quick question to F-last shoe owners. What's the difference in fit between the F last and U last? With the U last, my heel slips ever so slightly due to the slightly too large instep. I'm wondering if the F last will solve my problems.

    F last is wider and in my experience, a low instep. U is the opposite in traits, narrower, higher instep.

    - negative comments are about a bad experience with ordering from a certain SFer..
