Kidney bean lasts

Hello!

I'm looking for information about the appropriate shape for shoes. So, I know the lasts are supposed to be kidney bean shapes, but on a recent trip to a department store, all the lasts seemed pretty kidney bean shaped to me! Could people maybe post some pictures of kidney bean shaped lasts and, more importantly, *non-kidney bean* shaped lasts, so I can compare properly.

Thanks,

Mr M

Hi Mr. M,

I don't have pictures of the lasts, but I tell my students to turn the shoe over and look at the bottom.  The kidney bean shape is distinct when you look at the shoe this way.  Compare a Keen shoe to a regular shoe side by side.
