I have yet to try anything on the new resin Last, but then again all of my latest acquisitions have been from G&G. I've been hoarding Kudu lately. LOL
Personally I own more than a few from a number of different brands from Luxottica. My choice was never determined by prestige or cost but based on protection, appearance, and wearability. I tend to like the ear sock pieces that Oakly uses. The criteria I've used so far seems to work best for me. It seems that most of the brands they sell are pretty much in the same price range. Frankly it seems for the most part Luxottica doesn't make a brand better as much as it cut costs...
Understand, I tend to be more critical when it comes to those shoemakers where their Lasts are more challenging for me. However when it comes to EG and G&G I've been extremely fortunate with regards to how shoes and boots fit from both of these shoemakers.
Nothing wrong with regards to having a prefference, however both shoemakers really do have a lot of great things to offer.
Actually I had the opposite opinion after receiving my St James II in TanKudu and Vintage Cedar Calf.
Unfortunately EG doesn't even publish their entire catalogue.
The thing is EG has a much larger catalogue with so many more possibilities. They also have a wider range of Lasts which vary more in shape than G&G Lasts.
 I like to think they look real good on the 888, but then again I also like my Malverns and Falkirks on the 82.
Oops, for some reason I missed that he was talking about different lengths.
That's odd since the only difference between those Lasts should be that the Toe Box is a bit more narrow on the TG73.
