Hi Simon, I have worn both the up rise vcs, and now the up lace in low volume. I initially tried the standard up rise a few years ago but they were baggy above my mid foot and on the heel. I have quite slim feet for a size 9, but find the fit for me perfect in a size 8 in low volume. Everyone is different of course. I tried them all on at Outside in Hathersage , not sure of any other shops that sell unparallel in the UK. They are brilliant shoes for me and I'll stick with them. Good luck with finding the right ones for you.
Many Thanks for your reply. Thinking in a similar way to yourself too. You helped talked me into ordering a pair of LVs to try out from Outside. I'm based in Bristol and mail order from them seems to be only option. It'll be worth a risk of return post to find the perfect fitting shoe.
