Good to know well for what's it's worth when I bought ST 2 James pearl grey I asked for lasted shoe tree from soak. They reply & said now days G&G shoe trees are not lasted but they are cut to the last meaning it will accommodate each last accordingly but only difference is that toe box is same on all the shoe tree. But rest is different to accommodate last to last.
that jives with an email I received from EG :
Just to advise that before we go ahead and take an order from you, we do not have shoetrees that are specifically for the 888 last. As most of our lasts are based on the 202 last but with slight modifications (such as toe shape) we tend to find that it is best to use shoetrees based on the standard 202 shape.
Please let us know if we should still send you a payment request.
