I just thought that the 64 last is more roomy than 82?
Perhaps it's just my case. When I wore all my shoes on the 82/888 (Cardiff, Berkeley, and west minister) I did not need to have a break in period. I walk about 1.5 miles to and from work, but for these boots, they are slightly stiffer. The instep on these are a little bit lower for me too. Regardless, the walk today with these boots are not too bad - I'm sure after a few wears, they will be very comfortable. Edited by parkman24 - 1/28/16 at 5:26am
