How do they mark them? Is there any way to see it in pictures? I know some makers make a small hole in the sole for example.

I am not really sure how they mark it. My educated guess would be same way as JL. May be Cleav & Murlsquirl can put in their input these two gents went to eg factory store. And picked up some awesome goodies biggrin.gif

I think there's a letter "B" marked around the area where the model and sizing of the shoe?

Thanks. If that is the case, I'm safe.

Now, I've always believed that E is EG's standard width. The shoes I'm contemplating is marked 'F82' (82 being the last). This would suggest that they're wide (F width) given my assumption. I asked the seller who's from Italy about this, and I was told that "in Italy the standard is F82". Is this true or does the F stand for something else than the actual width? The box also says 'F82' under 'last'.

They do. You will need to head to Northampton or catch one of the flash sales. I think Jermyn St also has some but most I've been told there were discontinued. Others may have more knowledge.

Let me know if you head to Northampton and have room for a pair (or 10) shoes. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Seconds are marked with a "B" by the size.

If it's F, then it may fit slightly wider than normal. From my experience, the E width is close to many US D (medium) widths. Even for overseas markets, I don't ink EG changes their coding. I know when they have EG shoes for RL here in the US, their D is definitely UK D.

The box would also be marked.

Thanks, gentlemen.

I have EG shoes that are marked E. While they're not my best fitting shoes, they aren't a bad fit either. So I don't want to risk going with F width without knowing the incremental width increase. I have emailed EG and asked about their width and reject coding/marking.

"F" is the width and it is wider than "E". It doesn't matter where the shoes are retailed. They are still made at EG and "E" is their standard width.

Thank you. I can't find many threads on the fit of 888 vs 82, but ont place suggests that the latter is narrower than the former. Would that suggest that E888 is equal to F82 or is the difference not that great that it requires you to go up one width size?

Figure out your size on 82 last E width & then get same size with F width that would give you comfortable fit on 888 last.

I own a pair of 888 in E width. So I know how those are. Trying to figure out the fit of 82 compared to 888. As I've understood from one thread that discussed the fit comparison between the lasts, it was suggested that 82 is narrower than 888. Trying the 82 last in any width is not an option atm unfortunately,

82 is narrower than 888, but not by so much to justify going up a width.

The box is also a darker green color.

Personally I find 82 roomier than 888

F width is wider but common for European stores to stock only F. Borghini and Bel y Cia only have F iirc

Select EGs are up to 50% off at Man of the World. Unfortunately, the website does not indicate the width, last, or whether the shoes are UK or US size. I suppose you can call if you're interested in any of the models.
