So essentially what you are saying is the "new" versions of the lasts will fit just a touch roomier than the older ones, but not enough for a true size difference--hence if a size is borderline big on the old last, it will definitely be big on the new last. Thanks for the info.
I'd like to know as well what you are referring to. I have been an 8.5/9 on the E888, E202, and E82 lasts for years without any issue--just got a pair two weeks ago that fit perfectly on the E888. Would like to know more.
