About our lasts

We literally spent one full year designing, testing and adjusting our lasts before choosing the lucky seven that made the cut for our inaugural collection. Aside from their sculptural beauty, these lasts were chosen because of their superior comfort and universal fit. 

All of our lasts are medium width designed to fit comfortably on 85% of men out there.

The Line-up 

CITY: This last has a contemporary round-toe and offers a very generous fit while still maintaining a very elegant silhouette. Wear it true to size.

LOUVRE: The Louvre is a stylish soft square last that offers the same generous fit as the City but tapers at the toe to achieve its unique look. Wear it true to size.

888: Launched in 2019, has rapidly become one of our most popular lasts. It offers a roomy toe box while maintaining an elegant silhouette and a subtle soft square toe. Size down a half size from your normal shoe size. Wear true to size if you have wide feet.

371: Launched in 2019, this last offers a classic English round toe shape. A great alternative to City for men looking for a shorter last, 371 offers a classic aesthetic as well as a very comfortable medium width and a roomy instep. Wear it true to size.

MONACO: This last gives our penny loafers a spectacular European flair while offering the level of comfort you expect on a loafer. Size down a half size from your normal shoe size. Wear true to size if you have wide feet.

RITZ: Some boots are simply too elegant to be mounted on a typical round-toe boot last. You'll love the Ritz's soft-square toe. It's fit is almost identical to the Louvre. Wear it true to size.

SOHO: While we hope you take our boots off-road, they are really designed for the city. The Soho offers the perfect combination of country-side ruggedness and urban elegance. Wear it true to size.Consider sizing up half a size if your feet are a bit wider than normal. 

312: Our widest and roundest last, the 312 last offers a comfortable fit without being bulky or chunky. This is the last we use on our uR collection. Size down a half size from your normal shoe size. Wear true to size if you have wide feet.

750: Launched in 2020,  the 750 is classic loafer last offering a contemporary almond shaped toe while providing generous fit throughout. Wear it true to size.

357: Launched in 2022. This last is part of a new generation of lasts offering true-to-size fit and added comfort at the ball (widest area) of your foot. The 357 last also offers a spectacular silhouette accented by a handsome square chisel-toe. This last shares the exact same body, volume and fit of the 358 last. Wear 357 true to size.

358: Launched in late 2021. This last is part of a new generation of lasts offering true-to-size fit and added comfort at the ball (widest area) of your foot. The 358 last also offers a spectacular silhouette accented by a subtle soft-square (almost round) chisel-toe. This last shares the exact same body, volume and fit of the 357 last. Wear 358 true to size.

CHOOSING YOUR SIZE

When choosing your size, keep in mind that all of our shoes come in UK sizes, which run a full size larger than one's US size (For European and Japanese sizes, please see the Shoe Size Conversion Chart below).

So, as an example, if you're a 10 US then you should buy a 9 UK. That simple. 

While we provide a size conversation table for your reference, we advise you to choose your size based on the shoes you currently wear and your previous experience buying high-quality dress shoes. Just write us a note if you have any questions about your size.

Always (always!) use the conversion chart only as a reference. The same is true for having your feet measured at a shoe shop. Our feet are all different and have many dimensions that affect the size of shoe we wear. That's why your current shoes are your best source of guidance when choosing your favorite Cobbler Union pair.
