I'm looking to get my first pair of Edward Green, in either Last 82 or 888. I plan to buy online, and No local store carry this brand to try on. So, I need you Edward Green expert s help me to identify the right size.
Most of my shoes size experiences are from Alden: Barrie and Trubalance: 8.5D, Aberdeen, Plaza and Van: 9D. I only have very little experience with lower end British shoes. I had Grenson and Alfred Sargent in UK 8, not sure the last, but they fit well. I’m wearing some Brooks brothers peal & Co made in UK shoes (not sure maker and last) in US 8.5D/UK 7.5D. They are very comfortable. I also had little inconsistent experience with Italian brands. I wore Alexander for Borrelli Napoli at UK 7. UK 7.5 for Santoni FAM and A.testoni.
In general, I fall between US 8.5 and 9, width is D or slightly wider. Slightly high in-step (I know I’m not very comfortable with Alden Van last penny loafer).
My question: which size to choose, UK 7.5 or UK 8, for Edward Green in Last 82 and 888? Width E or F?
Thank you very much for your help!
