What timing you all have! 82 lasted rosewood CC on Dainite.
Looks a bit feminine on 82 last... haha
Thanks a lot for your recommendation!
Am thinking of what's unique to EG or less seen on other makers. (not sure if that makes sense.. example colours, materials)
I find Utah gold to be gorgeous too!
Navy appears to be very dark in the photos, and for blue shades I find their midnight blue antiqued very interesting.
Thanks a lot for your opinion guys! Happy Good Friday and a great weekend ahead
Very nice @MrVenneri! Fransboone or MTO?
I have a 202 rosewood galway MTO with Steve but won't come until May/June.
Axel's actually! They're beautiful in sunlight...but unfortunately the D width is just a tough too tight, so they'll be going back today.
I agree! I'll probably lose the dainite and MTO it.
If it were any more feminine it'd come with a stiletto!
I am 8.5/9uk, depending on weather the the forefront tapers before or not (narrow). Like you, I had the chance to try on EG 606 on 9E uk and it was huge as you said. However size 8.5 E fits almost like a glove. Although I love the EG 202 last, size 8.5 E was painfull at my toes (no chance to test 202 F widht nor size 9 uk).
So for GG MH71 & TG73 you size up .5 in lenght but same width.
Thanks man, no chance to test them here, not even one GG retail.
Thanks Steel28. So you just get same lenght but a wider size. To be frank, GG is too sleek for my taste, but I admire their work. And yes, Thorpes are for me a perfect boot.
Haha. I figured that comment would ruffle some feathers...but that's just one mans opinion and by no means any sort of stylistic guideline. The shrink-wrap fit and slightly curved forefoot coupled with that squared toe just completely turn me off. Personally I'm a fan of the 82 after I finally got the fitment correct. I like sleek...just not extreme euro sleek.
Ironically I just sold my fleet of gunboats (ravello, whiskey, and cigar)! If they were any wider and chunkier I'd have been able to walk on water. :)
hahahahha, you must love Deco line.....Sorry to hear all your gunboats are gone. Shame on you!!
You wouldn't happen to be a UK8.5E would you my good man? If so...I would like to take those Shannon's off of your hands! :)
Edit: Just saw they are UK9E. /sulk
