All TLB lasts are pretty normal in the instep. As suggested, use a tongue pad (like this one), we have a lot of Skolyx customers with low insteps using them with a good result, for different types of shoes.Can someone comment on the instep of the Artista line? I have a lowish instep. For reference Edward Green fits my foot the best and of Carmina lasts, Simpson is best. Would Artista work for me?
Most wear the same size in Simpson as in the Artista lasts.I am simpson 8.5 what size do you recommend with Goya?
Does TLB fill cork from heel to toe or just the front part like Carmina?Yeah! Have a friend who is very curious on this, so he intend to order shoes from a bunch of midrange brands and I will do a very detailed post, focusing on factual construction details like the ones listed above.
My size is:I wear:
Carmina rain 9.5 UK
Carmina uetam 9.5 UK
Carmina Simpson 10 UK
TLB Mallorca 9.5 UK
Allen Edmonds (most lasts) 10.5D US
Alden Aberdeen 10.5D US
Edward Green 82 last 10 E UK
The TLBs fit quite nicely for me. I wear a thinner dress sock with them and it’s just the right level of hug. As with any sizing, YMMV and comfort can be subjective.
TLB MTO program is great. Love my Artisa double monks.View attachment 1308771
For those of you who like TLB but have yet to find to our Skolyx affiliate thread, we run a TLB Group-MTO each month which we highlight there, this month it's this gorgeous black Artista faux full brogue on the Goya last, with single city rubber sole. We have them open for a month, delivery is 6-8 weeks after it's been closed, they are produced no matter the amount of orders, you can choose width, and we offer exchange of size. Price is without upcharge, so €425 incl. VAT ($378 excl. VAT for those outside EU).
More info in our affiliate thread here, and on our Skolyx website.
If anyone has wishes of future GMTO:s, let us know, it has happened several times that we run models which our customers have wished for.
