Do you mind if I ask how they were damaged, and was it water related?


@dddrees Not sure but my cobbler was unable to get the stains off, probably something oily ...

The cost of that is too high. I've found my EGs to be a better fit and so I'm migrating to them. Regardless it's a chance for some folks in my size to take advantage of a few really well maintained GG

I am the exact opposite. I will be purging some EG from my lineup soon and am mirating to G&G.

And EB? The personal last is not that expensive (just SEK 2,500)? I am considering to join next trunk show just to get the personal last... .

Sorry for "hijacking" this post, but yesterday i visited EG / C&J / JL factory shops in Northampton with the purpose determining my proper size - once and for all. The experience was well worth it and i learned a great deal and came away with one too.

 

I would like to share the experience in sizing as it may benefit those with slim feet.

As a reference, I have a slim foot / low instep and a confirmed GG 9E in the TG73 and MH71.

 

So here it is...

 

C&J Factory Shop

After trying many styles and sizes and lasts, my GG9E converts to a C&J 8.5E for a comparable comfortable all round fit. 

As confirmation, my C&J Tetbury 9E have now stretched to a point i need thick sports socks and still have space in length and width.

 

 

 

JL Factory Shop

Surprisingly, a wide variation in fits as well as sizes across different lasts.

The 7000 Last in 8EEE (slim fit) is the only one that fit me as it should.

 

 

 

Edward Green Factory Shop

Some years ago, i tried an Inverness (std 9E on the 888 Last) in a store and it felt wide so i passed on it.

The factory shop had an Inverness 8.5E. It fit snug, laced up fine and i was sure they would break in normally and i was contemplating buying them.

 

At that point, it was my luck that Ms Hilary Freeman (Managing Director & owner of EG) entered the room by chance and took it upon herself to ensure i would get the full EG treatment.

 

I was measured as an EG size 9.5C (c = slim fit) which is not a usual fitting and was offered the only 9.5C pair in stock which were some Shannon Boots.  I was advised that one should never compromise on the size (length) of your foot by dropping down half a size because that is "your size". You should get the right length and then a width to match, which is logical.

 

Well... the 9.5C  boot was a "dream fit".

Perfect in every element as if custom made to measure. The sculptured waist fits the contour of my foot, no nipping in toe box, no rubbing in the heel, vamp, uppers all to die for.

 

I finally found my perfect Last and size.

 

 

It goes without saying that, I purchased my first pair of EG 's at the Factory Shop which were 60% off list.

As a special, EG factory fitted toe plates came in at 25 GBP and EG 9.5C lasted trees at 35 GBP so i was a happy camper.

 

Given the consolidation of EG lasts, all i need to do now is state 9.5C and not worry about anything else.

 

Hope the sizing information helps.

Hey thank you for posting this me & you are same size I normally take 9.5D but I am not exactly US D but close to it. I tried Dover on 606 last 9uk & 8.5uk E width. 9uk felt too spacious so I went down to 8.5UK E width it was a good snug fit. And I have been taking that now I have never tried EG 9uk C width but I can definitely see it & will give it a try. On G&G 9uk E fits like a dream & I have G&G on TG73 last & MH71 last love them. On stcrispin I take 8.5uk regular width. Thank you for sharing this and in future I will definitely try out 9UK C width. Once again thank you for your input.

I've also been ordering more G&G as of late. Partly because it was high time for a Split Toe Boot and I decided I liked the Thorpe better than the Nevis and partly just because of those real enticing Pre-Orders from Patrick and the chance to get that great looking Kudu.
