Nice & congrats!

I thought that RL stopped the partnership with E.G. some time ago. Are these NOS shoes or what?

@justinkapur, nice pins. What's with the hairless patch, waxing practice?

I think you should stay the same size. You mentioned that the other day, you had some minimal slippage / able to put off the shoe quite easily. Maybe adding one of those tonguepads (that adhesive sticker thing) can solve the issue of the shoe being slightly roomy. 

 

This is honestly from my experience however. I veer as the perfect middle between a 9.5 D/E on the Brannock device. As a result, the 606 last, 82 last, 888 last, 64 last, 202 last, and 184 last have all been great on the same size.

Helps keep my socks up.....lol

I actually don't know why I have patches. I was superstitious as a kid when I played soccer and I wore the same shin guards when they probably should have been replaced. So that might have something to do with it

Thank you for the info. I compared my 202 to the 82 and the last feels the same. It's just the top of my foot is hugged closer on the 202 vs the 82. So maybe your tongue pad strategy might be the best way.

They look a little big to be honest. Laces fully closed on the first wear isn't a great sign. Tongue pad may solve the issue but doesn't mean the fit is great. The waist and heel cup doesn't seem to cup your heel very well. Maybe a half size down and up a width? Just my thoughts, beautiful shoes.

That is a horrible fit, because:
- The facings have fully met, yet they are so loose that you can pull of the shoes without unlacing them, that is crazy (not good) uhoh.gif
- You have heel slip
- I can see in the top picture a gap is clearly visible between your ankle and the inside of the shoe, the shoes should not have that amount of excess space

These shoes are probably half to a full length too long as well as a half to a full length too wide.

Do yourself a huge favor and: Get fit properly, by E.G. before buying any more pairs.

So in new shoes if laces are closed and touching all the way not over lapping & it's a good comfortable fit dose that mean size down? Or is this a rule that lace should not be touching like how Justin is on the picture. I just ask because all my shoes are like that but they are snug fit and no heal slippage and I can't just pop the shoe out with out undoing the laces.

I appreciate your thoughts on this matter but in the past we have agreed to disagree on fittings. I also have been properly fit. Thanks

Almost al my EGs have had closed lacings but have fit extremely comfortably. I dont like buying shoes that are slightly snug, prefer to buy them comfortable from the get go

TtownMD: I agree with this information posted on permanent style with regards to shoe fit.

Source: http://www.permanentstyle.co.uk/2015/05/how-shoes-should-fit.html


I have received a few questions on this 2009 post about how shoes wear over time recently, and note that there is no post that sets out the basics of how a shoe should fit.

Let’s start with a simple summary. A shoe should be tight at the back and loose at the front. It should hold the rear of the foot firmly, to stop it from slipping, and provide enough room at the front for the toes to move freely.

Movement of the foot is what causes rubbing and blisters on the heel or ankle, and can cause discomfort to the toes by allowing the foot to slide forward. When deciding which size of shoe to buy, therefore, make sure the ankle is held tightly around the opening of the shoe. Bespoke makers sometimes describe the fit as being ‘drum tight’, and it is the reason that a bespoke shape to the heel cup is so useful.

You will often find good makers lacing the shoe tighter than you are used to, for similar reasons. As with the fit of trousers on the waist, tightness in the back of a shoe takes only a few minutes to get used to. You then forget about it (again, as with a trouser waist) as the shoe never moves to remind you of its presence.

That old post made the point that leather stretches over time, and that this is a good reason to buy a shoe that fits snugly around the heel and ankle. It’s good advice, and I wish I’d followed it with some early purchases.

It is for this reason, too, that it is good to have some room between the facings (the two sides that are laced together across the top of the foot) so the shoe can be tightened further as the shoe stretches – or rather, moulds to the shape of your foot.

If it’s impossible to find a shoe last and size that fits in this way, you can try an insole or a tongue pad. Insoles are readily available but have the disadvantage of pushing the foot slightly up, out of the shoe. A tongue pad is inserted into the tongue itself, pushing the foot down instead.

It’s not easy to find a shoemaker that will put in a tongue pad, as the tongue has to be unstitched and then sewn back up again. But I have had them done at Cleverley, and Corthay offers a particularly good service in this respect – helped by having an expanded factory and such a big made-to-order business.

Before resorting to such alterations, though, it is always worth trying several shoemakers in the price range you are looking at, as each will have subtly different lasts and different options for MTO. Good, welted shoes will last you upwards of 10 years; it is worth spending the time to get the fit right.

That gap at the heel  and on the side looks quite large. Seems a bit too big to be solved by a tongue pad.  And if I can take my foot out of the shoe at any point when it's tied, it's a no go. Good luck though.

I might add that I was able to slip the shoe off my foot when I put an insole in the shoe to see if it would make any difference. An insole lifted my foot a bit higher which aided my foot in slipping out. Again I am super appreciative of everyones comments.

Maybe you can DIY the insole. Just cut off the heel portion with an exacto and see what happens.

So with the insole, the toe box was pinching my toes, so that isnt an option. I just figured to try it
