These industry standard letters, which indicate shoe fittings, are commonly used by many British footwear brands.

According to these industry standard letters, men's shoes width fittings start with 'E' which is narrow, then to 'F' which is considered average width, next is 'G' which is wide, and finally up to 'H' meaning extra wide.

For women's it starts with ‘D' meaning standard, next is 'E' which is wide, and runs up to 'F' which is extra wide.

Further down this page we include sizing notes for each of the LANX shoe lasts, and how they compare to these industry standard letters which indicate shoe fittings.

At LANX we use many shoe lasts which have different fittings. For people with wider feet we would suggest looking at styles built on the following shoe lasts: LX-A (men’s shoes), LX-B (Men’s shoes), LX-S (men’s Chelsea boots), LX-T (men’s boots), LX-K (women’s shoes) and LX-U (women’s boots).

We use excellent leather in all our footwear and more often than not our shoes will need to be broken in. Shoes that may feel snug at first will soften over time and you will get a better fit to the shape of your foot. If your new LANX shoes are only nipping a bit then it is likely you have a well fitted shoe and you should perceive breaking them in.

Yes we do for UK customers. In case the fit isn’t quite right just send your shoes back and we will post you an exchange pair free of charge. We also encourage customers that are undecided on size to purchase 2 pairs in different sizes and send 1 pair back using our free UK returns service.

SHOE LAST INFORMATION

Below we talk about shoe lasts and it’s probably worth us letting you know what a shoe last is before you read on. A shoe last is a 3-dimensional wooden or plastic mold. Every pair of LANX shoes is manufactured on a shoe last which gives it its distinctive shape, width and fit. All shoe lasts include the following dimensions; heel width, instep height and forefoot width. All shoes constructed on the same shoe last will be similar in shape and therefore fit. The various shoe lasts we use are listed below along with sizing advice for each. The shoe last used on each style of LANX shoe is stated on each individual product page, located in the 'Information & Sizing Advice' section.

This shoe last is most commonly used on our men’s shoes and brogues. If you are usually a full size in most footwear please purchase this style in your regular full size. However, if you are usually (or sometimes) in-between sizes we recommend going down rather than up. For example if you are usually a size 9.5UK please buy this style in size 9UK. If you currently own shoes from various brands in different sizes then we would recommend going down in our LX-A last rather than up. For example if you have a pair of size 9UK shoes in 1 brand but size 10UK in a different shoe brand, we would suggest buying a size 9UK in our LX-A last. We believe our LX-A last has a similar fit to other British footwear companies ‘G’ fitting shoes.
