Size, Last & Sole Guide

J.FitzPatrick shoes have a very standard fit when compared to most other dress shoe brands. Our sizes are based on the UK standard where ‘E’ is the “medium” width being equivalent to a US ‘D’ width. If you have always been size UK10, then this is what you should expect to be in our footwear as well.

Please note that our shoes run one size different to the US sizing. For example, if you are US10, you will need our UK9

All five of our lasts were created on the same body, only changing the shape of the toe, thus ensuring a standard fit from heel to ball of foot, across all models. However, one must take into account that loafers will fit differently to oxfords and oxfords will fit differently to derbys, so while you may feel good in the fit of an oxford, the same size in a derby might feel loose due to the extra room in the instep created from the open lacing.This has nothing to do with size however, but more so the nature of the different models in footwear. Understanding this will help you choose your size more accurately.
  • Our insteps would be considered generous.
  • All shoes with 6 eyelets will be even more generous in the instep.
  • Any model in full suede will feel more generous to its leather counterpart.
  • The boots have a forgiving instep in order for you to get into them easily.
  • Any monkstrap made on the MGF or LPB will feel more generous to it's oxford counterpart.
  • If you wear your oxfords very snug, then size up for your loafers. However, for most we recommend taking the same size as your oxfords.

Last Guide

The TMG last is the most classic fitting last. It is a very standard fit and is the last that we used to create all others. It is neither narrow nor generous but what most would consider 'true to size'.
The JKF last is broad in the forefoot but narrows quite a bit in the toe. This is only a problem if your foot is quite broad but for most, does not cause an issue. There take your standard size in this last.
The LPB soft chisel last is the tame brother of the sharp chisel, MGF, being identical in fit. It is generous in both length and width and good for broader feet and high insteps
The NGT last is a long and narrow last that is good for a low volume foot. It has a shallow vamp and is very hugging in the midfoot.
The SEA last is also a long and narrow last, our most narrow in fact and is also very hugging in the midfoot. But not so narrow that a standard foot would need to size up. 
The MGF sharp chisel last is an identical fit to the LPB. It is generous in both length and width and good for broader feet and high insteps.
The NJF last is our robust toe boot last. Identical to the SES last in terms of toe shape it is a standard fitting last, what most would consider 'true to size'
The SES last is our robust toe last. It is standard in fit in terms of width and length but with a slightly lower instep with regards to the rest of our lasts.
