The last is a hard, three-dimensional form on which the shoe is
constructed. Depending on the style of shoe we use different lasts,
this is what dictates the overall shape, proportion, fit and
character of the shoe. Many of our lasts have heritage, we've been
using them for decades. The original moulds are made from wood and
shaped by hand, there are then graded into the different sizes and
tested rigorously to ensure the fit is consistent across the full
breadth of sizes.
Our lasts will generally fit your regular size, although some vary
so the information below should guide you. If you are still unsure
