Our lasts run big for most customers. Therefore, we suggest in general sizing down from your typical sneaker or shoe size. Naturally we understand there are those who may fall between the cracks of general sizing guidance as every foot type is different. If you need help with sizing, feel free to reach out to info@parkhurstbrand.com with any footwear sizing information you currently have, and we can help identify the best size for you in Parkhurst boots. 

602 Last 

This last has a slightly lower volume to provide a more comfortably snug fit and to help prevent heel slip while maintaining a rounder forefoot. Its features include a single E width toebox as measured on the Brannock, along with a tapered arch and snug heel. The instep on this last is more contoured to the natural shape of your instep angle. The taper in the arch and heel can help provide a more natural, mild arch support.

Size comparison examples from current customers going off of a D/standard width:

Brannock - Half size down. If you're a 10D Brannock or slightly over a D width, go with size 9.5 in the 602 last. If you measure a single E width, more towards a single E width or prefer a slight bit of extra room without a drastic length increase, we suggest going with your Brannock size. In this example, a size 10. If you are a narrow width or low volume foot, we suggest going a full size down from your Brannock measurement.

Alden Barrie and Trubalance - True to size if D width. 

Red Wing No. 8 - True to size if D width. 

Thursday Boot - True to size if D width.

Allen Edmond's - True to size if D width, half size down if narrow.

Nike - Full size down if standard/medium width, half size down if width is slightly wider.

Adidas - Full size down if standard/medium width, half size down if width is slightly wider.

New Balance - Full size down if standard/medium width, half size down if width is slightly wider.

602M Last

This last is used for Chelsea and moc toe boots in order to support the traditionally narrower patterns for them. The difference between the two is the 602M last has a touch more depth in the toebox and width in the pinky toe area by about 1mm. Therefore, you may find there to be a slight addition of room in the toebox in this last.

Sizing for this and the 602 last has been consistent between D and up to single E width as measured on Brannock. So if you take a size 9 in the 602 last and are a D/E width, we would suggest a size 9 in the 602M last. If you take a size 9 in the 602 last and are a true D or D/C width, we suggest going down a half size into the 602M last, so in this case, a size 8.5 would be recommended. General size translations are below:

Brannock - Half size down, full size if narrower, lower volume foot.

Wide Width's - Take your normal wide width numerical size for E and EE. EEE will not fit.

Alden Trubalance - True to size

Alden Barrie - True to size

Red Wing - True to size

Nike - Full size down

New Balance - Full size down

Adidas - Full size down
