^^ Fantastic boots!  I would have had a very hard time saying no to those if they were a half size smaller.

The wingtip boot is growing on me...how does that boot feel compared to a Galway on the 82 last in the same size?

I thought I had EG sizing down. but I just bought a pair of Berkeleys in my size on the 202 last from Skoak's EG fire sale and my feet swim in them. And yet my other 202s fit really well. And today I should receive a pair of EGs on the 890 last that I picked up in Left's sale. And, honestly, this is a true roll of the dice. I've never tried the 890. So they may also be coming to an eBay auction near you sometime soon!

I do not have any official information when the resin 82 last came into use, I presume (take with a grain of salt), that they went into use along with the introduction of the 890 last around half a year ago. I don't no how one could determine if a shoe was built on the resin 82 if purchasing RTW, because you never know how long it was sitting in inventory. I presume mine was because it was MTO and was built within the last two months. I have also noticed a slight difference in fit. Furthermore the 82 resin last was discussed a few weeks by a couple of other members. See the following link below:

http://www.styleforum.net/t/291745/edward-green-appreciation-pictures-info-and-where-to-buy/24150

There are some mixed opinions over weather it is warranted to size down for the resin 82. For me my usual size feels perfect. Normally on the old 82 and on the 888, 606 and 202 in the same size, my right small toe aches slightly for the first couple of wears, only after about a break in of around 30 hours in total does that issue disappears and does the fit and feel get to my liking. With the resin 82, the first thing that I noticed when I received them is that I didn't have the slight toe ache; the shoe felt just a tad roomier in the toe box and overall more comfortable.

If you have the chance to fit a shoe that was built on the resin 82 at store in your usual size, then I would suggest you defiantly give them a try. The slight change in fit might be just enough to change your experience and opinion about the fit of the last.

To me fit is same but I feel 202 is little snug in toe box area not in a bad way vs 82 last which is more spacious in toe box.

Snug where?  On the pinky or the big toe?  On the side or in the front?

On side but not in a bad way, meaning no pain or discomfort but I do prefer my shoes boot good & snug. I also have not taken them out yet.

Thank you very much! I was thinking about going up a half size...just because Chup socks are rather hearty and bulk in comparison to my Marcolinani's but I'm glad I asked first!

 

Just for my own understanding, could you explain the key differences between the two lasts? My thought was that the 64 is a little wider in the mid-foot with a slightly higher instep where as the 82 is narrower in the mid-foot, with an angular/tapered toe.

I did go a half size up on Galways for wear with thicker socks. But length isn't really an issue for me. Either length works because I'm somewhat in between. I just put an insole in the half size larger boot and it's perfect volume wise.
