Yes, it's been really bad. Very long lead times......

We'll see if we can't recreate that fight[1].gif here. I suspect there are too many enthusiasts in this thread.

Leather Soul claims that EG E width is equivalent to a US D, however, I know other US EG retailers order their EG shoes in D width. I think their D width is closer to the "normal" American width. What are other people's thoughts and experiences on this? I know D fits me better, but E still works.

There might be some truth to Leather Soul's comment as well as your statement about the D width. The Falkirks that I picked up via Saks are "D" width on the 82 last. They fit my feet fine.

I think the general consensus is that the UK E width corresponds to the US D width.

For what its worth, when I dropped into Bel Y Cia in Barcelona last week, the sales associate was quite proud of the fact that all models were available in the wider F width - I'm assuming that was because E is the standard.

Yup they were on the 101.

Why did you get rid of your Falkirks? Size issue?

Even though they were my size I think the last just didn't work for me. That and the fact that during that time I had so many ill-fitting shoes I think my feet were perpetually swollen. Oh, and the metal eyelets. I like the newer version of the Falkirk much better but can't do dark oak antique because I have the Malvern in that color. Thus the blue/blue.

I do all of my MTO's through Leffot - highly recommended. Thanks guys and enjoy.

I agree E is the standard amongst other makers. John Lobb retailers always go with E width. I've never seen John Lobb RTW not in an E.

With EG, however, there seems to be disagreement amongst even the retailers. Leffot, Sky Valet and Axels (among others) offer RTW EGs in D, while Leather Soul offers in E. Leather Soul claims that EG E width is equivalent to an American D (the standard width in the US). If that is the case why do other American retailers stock in D width? By Leather Soul's logic that would mean this is really an American C which is narrow. I don't think the retailers I mentioned above would stock most of the RTW they have in narrow.

I hate how EG has such wide heel cups across their lasts.

I don't think they do. Unless I'm mistaken, those are on the blobby/classic 202 last. As a narrow-heeled EG wearer, I've found the 82, 88 and 888 are all noticeably smaller in the heel than the 202 last and its derivatives.

All the EGs I have owned (are tried on), their D is equal to a US D. I not sure why Leather Soul would say that and he has seen 1000s of EGs?

I never really noticed this before, but certainly will going forward.
