    Nice! I trust you'll keep them assuming they fit. :^)

    Great job of selling the NST to me. Now I just need to receive my first pair (austerity brogue) to make sure I have the fit down and then can start pondering a makeup of the NST

    Damn you SF

    Slew, JB, thanks. I got the measurements for the f last, size 45: 32.8 x 10.8-11. Length is spot on but width seems disproportionally narrow.

    I never really trust outside sole measurements. Different lasts fit differently and you'll never really know until they are on your feet.

    I agree but a ballpark measurement is useful. Just a touch narrow but maybe the measurements are off?

    Sizing wise, I should be set: US12D = UK11 = Vass 45. Hoping, praying, agonizing that they fit

    Is that the outsole measurement, or a measurement of the last itself?

    That does seem really narrow. My feet are only a 10D-E or so and they're 27cm x 11.5cm and 27.5cm x 11.5cm (one foot is longer)

    Measurement of the outsole. Atleast that's what I asked for.

    45.5 is a 12D in F last.

    I thought that one went TTS in F and up a 1/2 size in U last. My F last shoes are 42 = US. My U last are 42.5 = US9t. Course I haven't purchased for a couple of years. The F last has changed?
