Sure. RL was the first to pop in my head. If it's made by EG you are good to go.

I notice a trend that makers seem to introduce new lasts more frequently. As a retailer (and Shoe Freak), I have to say that I would prefer fewer new lasts and more new styles. Not only does it become more perplexing for clients (especially for experienced buyers who has nailed down their lasts/size) the more lasts they have to chose from. It's also more expensive to develop new lasts compared to developing a new style pattern. Is it a move to expand variety and thus increase sales? Or a service to provide lasts that are more easy to fit clients into? Just a reflection. A bit off topic I guess,

Steve, what's your 2 cents?

You couldn't have said it better Patrik and I am certainly on the same page.

 

While it's great to see companies updating and keep things modern by develop new lasts & patterns, last thing I want to see is companies forgetting about their heritage and the lasts / shapes that put them a map ;))

I have been on this horse for a while. John Lobb has become the new churchs. Once proud brands now relegated to pure fashion items. Sad really kind of why I rebelled against the 890....if you want sleek the 82 and 888 get it done. I understand that others are more enthusiastic which I am happy for them. However for me well constructed English footwear is were it's at rant over I am done.

So is the 915 supposed to be the primary round toe last to replace the 82? Funny as didn't EG just spend money to replace the lasts?

The 890 was also to supplant the 888?

I know the next issue is they won't have the older lasts when I send my shoes in for resoles after a few years...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Do you find any similarity to the JL 7000 last?

post #25332 of 29601
888 and 82 lasts were designed by Tony Gaziano if I'm not mistaken - maybe EG was tired of that "heritage". Anyways, the new 915 last looks like it has a great profile but I don't like the top down look. I'd probably just stick to the good ol' 82 and 202 lasts, both are great looking rounded lasts although the 202 can be hard to fit.

They are not replacement but just a modernized adaptation of classic like 82 & 888 ;)

I don't think they will get rid of classic like 82 or 888 anytime soon.

 

915 is based on 82 and has a very similar shape except for the side wall it is more pronounced.

890 is based on 888.

Not quite... 915 is very similar to 82 but as mentioned above has more pronounce side wall profile on the toe area
