602 Last 

This last which 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 more laterally voluminous, yet low profile toebox along with a tapered arch and a 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 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.

Parkhurst No. 18 - True to size.

Alden Barrie and Trubalance - True to size if D width. Some customers go a half size up from this last into the 602 last if they are looking for a bit more space or have a wider forefoot. 

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.

Nike - Half size down if D width.

Adidas - Half size down if D width.

New Balance - Half size down if D width.

602M Last

This last is used for Chelsea and moc toe boots in order to support the traditionally narrower pattern 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.

Sizing for this and the 602 last has been consistent between D and 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

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
