    Is that an F last double monk? If so, please post pics... I can only find U last double monks but prefer the fit of F last.
    Medtech, yes i ordered F -last double monks. crossing my fingers that they don't look to bulbous; quite like the u-last, but yes, doesn't fit me very well. Will definitely post pics when my couple pairs get here in jan!

    Is there anyone who gets same sizes on both F and U lasts or do most people go half a size down on F last?

    Definitely half size down from the U on the F and P2 in my experience.

    FWIW, I have a narrow heel myself and find that the F last hugs quite nicely, better than the 888, 337 or 8000.

    Agree

    Is there anyone who gets same sizes on both F and U lasts or do most people go half a size down on F last?

    i think it depends on the shape of the foot and how they fit the last, i was ok with both being the same size

    why i sold my U lasts were i did not like the shape of it

    i pretty much prefer the "normal" sole - better balance.

    can you confirm that f-last models are available with a standard single or double sole?

    I agree. I like the single sole better on my oxfords and now get them exclusively that way. On my derbies I still get the double sole. Single or double are available in F last.

    I'm not sure what happened there but I'll repost when I get back from the holidays early next week.
