So the galaway that is being sold by brook brother which is on 82 last. It's safe to say that they are on new 82 last?

How are you guys sizing 890 and 888 relative to 82 and 202? Can you describe the fit of the 890, especially if you have a wide foot and high instep?
Hey I don't own 202 last but own all other I take same size 8.5 uk E width. I have average narrow feet, if you have wide feet you may have to up in width. At least for 888 & 890 but 888 is much more narrow compare to 890 last.

I believe the 82 last change did occur. The 82 E went from sublime and narrow to 202-like wide.

I think the 202 is similar to the 606. I take E in the 606 and F in the 890.

That sucks. I was there last Jan and tried two floor models; I took the same size in 202 and 82 (7.5E). I'm sure that's all different now.

Yet another inconsistency from EG.

I have several pair of EG's shoes from about 5 years ago when they collaborated with RL and at the time I was stupid and didn't opt in for the shoetree's , does anyone have any advice if I just purchase some of the ones they have now if they should fit or do I need to contact them and share the exact last. Also, I know before anyone says it - it was stupid. Anyone on the fence , get the real shoe tree's.

So after all this time your just getting around to o thinking about getting shoe trees, so what have you been doing up to this point​?

New and old 82 last?? Well that's certainly news to me. Care to chime in @Leaves?

The 82 last Galways from 2 years ago were smaller than the Galways I tried on a month ago that were built on the new 82 last of the same size.

Therefore I had to size down a half size on the new 82 lasts.

So I would assume this might be the same for other Lasts such as the 888, 202, and 64​ as well?

New 82 last? not heard of this one before but will ask at the shop today, just on my way there in a hour.
I know there is an E82 and F82 but not heard of any new 82 last.

Also confirmed by my own feet.....

I will have to try that too, becasue 82 last of few years ago was too long for my feet so much that I had to size down in length but go up in width.

Yes thank you. Did the same occur with other lasts. That is why I am so suspicious of this.

I just heard that there was a change for the 82. Not sure about the others.

Understand, and thanks for sharing but I do wonder if this type of thing occurred with the other Lasts. I would think at some point they would want to transfer the other Lasts to the same kind of forms as well.​ I guess it just kind of depends on what kind of wear the other Lasts experienced with regards to how big the difference will be.
