If you have a flat foot does that mean you have a low instep?

I guess last night when I tried them on I might have been paranoid because this morning when I laced them up they felt pretty damn good.
I'll post pictures of them soon enough but I do think the 82 Chelsea in dark oak is probably one of the most beautiful shoes I've ever seen.
890 & 82 last are two of my favorite EG last for me. Enjoy your shoes in good health !!

Generally speaking there is a correlation...but not always the case. I have low arches and thus a low instep...but my feet/arches are not flat.

890, 72, 915 - these new lasts do not do much for me. I question/ wonder about this push to develop new lasts, especially when the patterns for the actual shoes do not change much or at all. But I do understand EG trying to appeal to certain tastes different than my own. What are the impressions of these new lasts for people who have them or like them?

Materials do make a difference in terms of fit and comfort. Suede, buckskin, goat, delapre et al. will be softer, more pliable, and possibly more comfortable without much break-in, all things being equal.

I like a round and proportional last with soft lines for my dress shoes (read oxfords); that's the 202 and 201 in a nutshell. The 82 is cool too, but it looks extra pointy to me on my D and C width kicks. As always, people should seriously consider choosing what fits their feet best, not necessarily what pleases the eye.

I'm planning to get some MTO Malvern chestnut. Thinking of getting the tapered double leather sole rather than the single traditionally shown. Opinions?

It will primarily be worn in a dress casual setting with chinos/ trousers and a button up, no tie or jacket... And perhaps occasionally with jeans

An excellent choice. Chestnut Malverns (on 202) were the first EGs I purchased and remain one of my favourites.

Sounds like an excellent choice.  The sandringham (sort of the derby version of the malvern) could also work well for a casual dress.

A month or so ago I ordered an almost similar pair; the Malvern in burned pine on the 888. However, didn't consider anything heavier than single leather soles as they will also see some office use.
