Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1669

post #25021 of 28913
I am going to jump in here on the 64 last questions. I have an Alderly on the 202 last in size 8 UK. That boot fits with some wiggle room. Never uncomfortable but it certainly isn't snug. I am interested in my first Galway on the 64 last and was thinking I would go down to 7.5. Thoughts on whether this is a bad idea?.

In my experience, I would take the same size (8UK) in 202 and 64; assuming both are the same width

It's a bad idea.Take the same size.

Thanks guys. Would your opinion change if I told you I was 7.5 UK in almost everything else?

7.5F in G&G MH71, 7.5 in Carmina rain, etc.

Nope.  Size it by maker (or lasts).  Sounds like 8UK works well for you in EG, so stick to that :)

The 82/888 last feels a lot more comfortable to me than the 64. I'm hoping it is because these boots need an initial break in. 😁

Regardless, they are quite beautiful boots! Still haven't found a good occasion to wear the DOAK/mink suede ones though...

Does a pair of country calf require more break in?  I don't have experience with it other than my E64 walnut cc/mink shearling pair, which I find very comfortable.  Hopefully they'll feel great after a few more wears

 

As for the doak/mink 82 Galways... the answer is ANY occasion, other than rainy/snowy days (I have the same issue)

Can you guys tell me your respective Edward Green 606 last size and Vass F last size? ? 

 

Thanks.

Imho "snug fit" > "loose fit", so I would recommend you expiriment with sizing down. When you have doubts about your shoe size, go to the store and try on and experience various sizes, choose the one with the best fit.

If you live too far away from a retailer, it might be a good idea to contact them and explain your sititaion, ask if you could try the 7.5, with the option of sending them back for the size 8 if they turn out to be too small for you.

Perhaps I simply favor the 82/888 last more than 64. 64 for me definitely does not have a unique feel to it like the 82/888. The last almost feels like a normal shoe from Allen Edmonds on the 65 last (my opinion only of course). Regardless, I find that the longer I am wearing this boot, the more comfortable it becomes. Once broken in, I definitely agree that this will be the PERFECT winter book to trudge through snow/slush/rain as I walk to and from work.

 

As for the doak/mink Galways, I'm still waiting for the ideal conditions lol. Don't want to wear them until it is completely sunny, dry, and nice outside. Perhaps they won't make their maiden voyage until springtime in Boston or even summer :foo:

Dark brown delapre --- appropriate with a suit?

^It depends?

Sure.  The unstated assumptions are that the EG model is itself "suitworthy" (Chelsea or maybe Westbourne) and that it's a standard CBD worsted grey or blue suit.

I'd do that. And no one outside of this forum will notice or care:)
