I wonder if EG has a long-term plan to replace all of their wooden lasts with Resin. Maybe they started with the 82 b/c it is one of the less popular lasts (no offense to 82 fans).

Now you've gone to far. LOL

Hard to directly compare. My old size in the 82 was definitely too big with these new resin lasts. Again, we're comparing two Galways so it's not the shoe pattern that caused the variability.

Personally, I find the new 82 to be better proportioned than the old 82, which I found to be too slender. Looks more like a blend between the old 82 and the 202.

Maybe I should put this issue to rest as I am not planning to buy any more of EG shoes but I am really curious about all of this. 82 and 888 lasts are the same except for the toe box shape, however only 82 last was changed from wood to resin?????

Shouldaville says he did not notice enough difference warrant the size change and I believe him.

It all sound unbelievable to me. If you are changing the lasts should not dimension be the same whether you build replacement last on resin or plastic? Weird.

Just to help you, I first purchased EG Malvern on a 82 last D width 18 months ago. 9/9.5 size was tight for me with the small toes of my left foot, the larger foot, bending/ feeling cramped. So much so that my left foot started to hurt after walking around in store for 1-2 minutes.I went with 9.5/10. However, I ended up selling it on EBay while the shoes were still new because there was a lot of space at the back of the heel.

I tried EG again six months ago. This time 9/9.5 on the 82 last with D width was fine, snug but fine. I am now contemplating whether to try E width for my next EG purchase after buying few D widths. However, from not fitting into the 9/9.5 size 18 months ago to fitting in it now suggests that lasts have increased in width. Don't believe my feet have shrunk.

Wasn't trying to be obnoxious. Didn't mean it the way you are trying to make it sound.

It is possible but again it is also possible that EG changed dimension of the last. I have hard time believing story about wood shirking and all that. I realize that I am now talking about technical terms but it is what it is.
In addition @Shouldaville says that he did not need to size down, @bespoken pa also found the difference negligible.
You and @jerrybrowne have opposite experience.
Weird.

Hmm interesting perhaps I'm the outlier.

You know what is mind boggling about all this. Suppose you had shoes/boots on the "old" 82 last and you decided to order MTO on 82 last known to you as 82 last, only to receive shoes 6-9 months later on the "new" 82 last that fits differently from all other 82 lasts that you have known for all this time.

Fortunately I am done patronizing EG . I may still purchase shoes only if I can try them physically but I am not ordering any MTO anymore.
