Edward Green's 82 last

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I received a pair of boots a few days back on the 82 last and think they're absolutely gorgeous. The last is sleek and elongating without being pointy--great for short, stumpy feet like mine. The toe-box is high enough for some wiggle room though not as much as the 202. Here are some pics:

Very nice, indeed. One thing I noticed is that those looke very much like a boot version of AE's Park Avenue. I have mine on right now, as a matter of fact. At any rate, glad you like them. Enjoy.

Shannon is such a wonderful design, and 82 last looks just beautiful. I'm glad that they turned out so well for you.

I intend to order those exact boots at the EG trunk show this Friday/Saturday in DC at Sky Valet. So, thanks. The pictures are very timely. I had been thinking that I'd do the 888 last, but 82 is a possibility also. Is 82 basically the 888 but with a rounded rather than squared off toe? I really like the clean lines of your boots. They remind me, I guess, of the wonderful Chelsea shoe (which I have in dark oak). Do you know if the Shannon only comes in a captoe or if it's possible (per a trunk show order) to order it with a wing tip (still w/o brogueing) instead of captoe?

The Shannon is EG's rendition of the original balmoral boot, so they're closer to the Gladstone than the Chelsea, but I know what you're talking about. I don't know for sure whether EG would substitute a wing cap for a straight cap on this model, but I have seen pictures of other patterns with substitution. I can't imagine that it would be a problem.

You're welcome.

Correct. You can see side by side comparison of some lasts here: http://img25.imageshack.us/gal.php?g=eg606-eg888_sm.jpg

Intersting idea, but I have no clue. Things that I would change in my order are: - The single leather sole comes with a 1" heel, and I think a 1 1/4" heel would be better. (Not even sure if this is an option) - The laces that came with it are really thick and don't look good on such an elegant boot. I would have preferred ordinary sized laces.

Holy mackeral, what a fantastic link that is.

Can you wear these with a suit?

Certainly. Under many situations, they'll be indistinguishable from captoes. dan

I love the Shannon boot. Absolutely envious here.
