Please see the original post. I have revised my offer to be more competiive with the current EG sale. I am now including a pair of lasted EG shoe trees with the shoes, box, and shoe bags. Price is still $800, but includes the trees, which are probably worth $100 to $120 (according to the current EG sales thread on SF). This pair on offer is far nicer (IMO) than anything EG has in the current sale or the prior 2 sales in this size.
I am thinking of taking the plunge into the world of the clunky Alden Barrie last. If I do, I will choose between the #8 shell Plain Toe Bluchers or the #8 shell Chukkas. They seem to be the same shoe (one low, the other high). Which is more versatile, a better choice, etc. Help me choose.

Not that you asked me, but I would have done the same. The Tamars are OK -- good for $420, but I would get more use out of the Harringtons.
I don't have the ability to photograph my pair. Sorry. The only difference between the 888 and the 82 last is the toe shape (888: soft square; 82: soft round).
Here is a picture from another SF thread, showing the Beaulieu in burgundy on the 82 last. Note again that the pair I am offering is in dark oak. I think the Beaulieu looks best on the 82, which is why I went for it. Hope this helps.
I am offering a brand new pair of Edward Green Beaulieu in dark oak on the 82 last. Comes with box and shoe bags AND INCLUDES Edward Green shoes trees. Size is 8/8.5D. See the attached link from Sky Valet for a picture of what they look like. I am selling them for $800 shipped in the CONUS. This is among the most revered EG style among the I-Gents on SF.
This revised offer makes these more competitive with the current EG sale price once you factor in the cost of EG...
