What the Leffot site says used to apply, at least according to what I read here in this thread a couple of months ago about the changes they made to their trees. To my knowledge their were at least three variants of E.G. shoe trees, one for the 202/606, one for the 82/888 and one for their loafer lasts (505 among others). A couple of months ago they switched to two generic trees if I recall correctly, one last for dress shoes and one for loafers, at least that is what I...

Sure, my experience is based on:UK6E:3 X 8882 X 6061 X 82UK6.5E:1 X 888E
Personal choice, but I prefer to go with snug vs slightly loose. I am not at all a fan of the E.G. sockliners. For me, in my situation they don't work well at all.In my experience is that after the shoe has broken in it will start to fit looser. Due the heat and moist that your foot gives off the leather will stretch after some wears and also due to your weight (heat and moist) the cork filled sole will slightly compress making the shoe fit roomier after it has broken in....
