For what it's worth, I find 145 oxfords on the 1035 last notoriously inconsistent. For example, I'm a 10D Brannock. My Withered Fig Mushroom Oxfords fit perfectly a full size down - 9.5 is too big, 9 is perfect. Yet my Withered Fig Horsebutt Crust in a 9 feel a half size too big, to the point where I could do an 8.5 unless I'm wearing thick wool socks. Well, I tried Standard & Strange's 145 oxford in tobacco chamois - and an 8.5 is pretty much perfect with thin to medium thickness socks - a full 1.5 sizes down. They feel the exact same as my Withered Fig Mushrooms. Withered Fig's blog seems to confirm the Horsebutt Crust oxfords run a quarter to a half size big as well.I was hoping to get some sizing advice on a semi-structured toe 1035 last .
For the 2030 I wear a 9 unstructured & 9.5 structured.
I’ve been contemplating on picking up a pair of 145 oxfords on the 1035 last w a semi-structured toe, would a 9.5 fit similar to the 9.5 structured toe 2030? I’ve read that 1035 is a bit wider than the 2030 or is that wrong?
I’d appreciate any input, thank you.
I would just advise buying 145s from somewhere you can try and return as necessary.
