Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1757

yeah the 64F galways are hard to size. I took the same length as my 82E but somehow my toes are cramped yet there is too much volume at the ball (thicker socks cramp my toes even more without fully filling out the ball area). Perhaps they are made for people with skinny toes and a meaty midfoot.

Really? That's an interesting perspective. It just goes to prove that sizing is a matter of preference and needs to be something you personally experience.

I find the 64 to be short and squat compared to all other EG lasts. I actually size up a half in length in comparison to the 82,202,606. Additionally I find it to fit about a half width wider than usual. I own a 64E and it's fine but for a more elegant fit I would have chose a D. However it's a country boot so the extra room isn't unwelcome. I wouldn't be able to tolerate it the excess volume on a city boot (82 last).

My 64F zugs are tighter than any other pair I have, including 202 in E at same size. Not sure where the notion of 64 being the most roomy came from. It's tight for me all around despite looking the most chunky

I wear the same size in all the Edward Green Lasts I own 64, 82, 89, 202, and 888. I found the 64 a bit snug in the toe box initially but after just a little while it was just fine. All Lasts are the same length and in the E width.

I am the same size in all of them with the 82 being the worst fit. Just a touch too tight on the instep and also the elongated last does not work well for me. Maybe going down in size and up in width may work in the 82 but have not tried that. I also have not tried the new resin lasted 82

Yeah, I have yet to try any With the new resin Last myself. I've found myself buying G&G shoes and boots lately.

My experience also that the 202 is roomier.
Like you said, I think its bc the 64 looks the most chunky. But its not the roomiest last at least not for me

That's what did went down a half size in length and up in width on 82 last. It worked for me.

I may have a few from a number of different shoemakers, but I can't imagine a time when I still won't have more from Edward Green.

For what's it's worth I take 8.5 uk E, on 202, 606, 890, & 82 last.

Yes i suspect from the way the 82 fits that going down in size and up in width would work

Yep, yep. LOL

I was definitely already planning on another watch purchase so I suppose that settles it.

What product do you gents prefer for cleaning/conditioning your country calf Galways? Sorry if this has been addressed before.
