post #24796 of 28918

Can anyone give me sizing guidance?  I'm looking at a pair of RL EG Barksdales and I'm wondering how they fit.  I wear size 9D in most shoes.  Should I expect these to be TTS?  Any sizing guidance for EG shoes would be very much appreciated, as I have not owned EG before.  Thanks in advance!

If you are a US 9D, most likely UK 8.5E will do.

Or sometimes people may size down one whole size, say, go with 8E

Order both size and keep the one fits you best.

Actually since they were made for Ralph Lauren, they are sized with US sizes.  I usually do size down a whole size from UK to US.  However, sometimes a shoe can run big or small.  So even though i'm usually a US 9D, perhaps in this shoe I would be a US 9.5 or US 8.5.

No, EG does not run big or small. Different in lasts only results in different fitting. They all fit similar.

I am not sure about RL size as I have never ordered from them. But in your case UK 8.5E should work.

note EG for RL are often D width --- like EG D width which is narrow.

As you can see below, the split toe alignment on the left shoe is off and the leather near the heel looks to be quite dry and starting to crack already.

Do you guys think I could restore the leather with some oil or conditioner or polish? Or would I be better off to just deal with the hassle of an exchange and not risk the leather further deteriorating?

Thanks In advance for any input.




That toe seam is embarrassing. Return them on that basis.

As for the heels, EG will tell you (1) it is not cracking (but rather appears like that due to the burnishing), (2) it will be remedied by a leather conditioner, and (3) it is not a defect. I'm not saying I agree with them, just telling you what they will say.... As for what your retailer might say, I do not know.

Good luck.

EG Newmarket in Hazel Antique - darkened juuuuust a bit by me on arrival.

They are truly beautiful.  Just keep in mind mine are slightly darker than stock - just two coats of Saphir medium brown cream.

9UK - I can't take 8.5 in any EG shoes or boots.  And these are quite snug over my high-ish instep (always an issue for Chelseas for me) but I feel they will break in enough to be okay.

Got yea & thank you I take 8.5uk E on all EG 82,202,606 last but for Chelsea I was debating to stay 8.5uk or go down to 8uk. I have gone to 8uk on EB & Carmina Chelsea boot.

I think both EB and Carmina have more sizing variation as between different lasts than does EG.

@RogerP, if you happen to take any pics of those while you're sporting them, would love to see how the Newmarket looks on the foot. I had thought an almond toed Chelsea would be too pointy but your pics have me reconsidering that (and thinking about a rosewood CC pair that's currently available).
post #24810 of 28918

^^^ Ubet.  I'll get around to some pics of them being worn once they are broken in.  I don't find them very pointy at all, but of course that's a subjective assessment.

 

That Rosewood CC pair is absolutely killer, IMO.
