    This. P2 has much higher instep. I have a low instep and quarters completely closed, almost overlapping to the point I would consider 1/2 size down, and that's with orthotic. F last has a gap at the lacing. I think Roguls may have it reversed.

    Hi guys,

    I just tried two pairs of black cap toes at a local store. One in F last and the other in U. I really like the rounded toe shape of F last, but the U last seems to fit better. The "V-shape" of F last is also wider.

    F on the left foot and U on the right foot. Both sized EU42

    As I can only afford one pair, any opinion/suggestions?

    Thanks!
