Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1777

To cut the story short, my John Lobb and Crockett Jones size is a UK 9 E. I bought a pair of Chelsea in UK 9.5 E some time ago but they always felt kinda loose at heels.


After reading @MrVenneri
 post about his resin last experience, I decided to pull the trigger on a 82 F fit Chelsea last in size UK 9. And WHOA, what a hit. They feel like a bespoke pair and far more comfortable than Lobbs or Crocketts.


The quality and leather of these is unbelievable. I guess it's the most versatile style you can get.


So, from my experience these are an amazingly fitting US 10 D.


Now,  being the moron I am sometimes I may sell these and buy the same pair on 202 last as I am obsessed with the rounded toe though my friends are saying the 82 is far more handsome than the blobby 202.


A quick dirty room photo.





P.S Now selling these to finance my 202 Chelsea. LoL. These are coming with Original Lasted EG trees. Check the BUY&SELL Section.

Glad I could provide some assistance. I'm saddened you prefer the 202 over the 82 in oxfords. I like the 202 on a boot...but it's not on the list of favorites from EG. But hey - to each their own! I'm glad you found what YOU like.

Just to shed some more light on this whole resin last/sizing debacle...


I am a US 10 via the brannock in both length and instep and a C/D in width.



I wear a UK8.5E in all EG lasts except the EG64 which is noticeably more short and squat compare to the others. In that last I have to wear a UK9E. Below is a picture of my foot along side a Galway on the 82 last.

Note that this particular pair is a UK8E!! I needed JUST A BIT more length but otherwise this fit was perfect from waist to heel.

Much like Skoaktiebolaget, I'm unable to pronounce Skomakerdagestad. I also can't understand a a single word on the Skomakerdagestad website...but I can attest to Stefan's level of customer service, it's simply top notch. Stefan is prompt, professional, polite and I have thoroughly enjoyed doing business with him. Additionally he corresponds in impeccable English! I would not hesitate to purchase from him again and plan on it.

Second you comment abt Stefan, I've bought three pairs from him and I don't regret it! (even though my wallet isn't that happy). I have sadly not yet had the chance to speak to Dagestad myself, but hopefully that will happen soon!

Thanks @MrVenneri , also I have got to admit this is the first time I see the so called "Brannock device"

And God willing I pray it's your last. IMO, this arcaiac device is about as useful as a wireless extension cord. The only 'direction' that it has served me is the fact that I have human feet. YMMV.

It appears that you have a narrow foot, a 10C. have you tried on a 9/9.5D?

Indeed


It was a diabolical experience at that.

Most experienced fitters I have met advised me to wear dress socks when getting fitted for dress shoes. In the event you get fitted with thicker socks and afterwards you switch to thinner dress socks there is a good chance that the fit will not be as good had you been fitted with dress socks to begin with. Some shops will even offer you a free pair of dress socks if you come in with casual socks and show interest in fitting some of their shoes with the intent to buy.

You are getting fitted wearing sports socks for dress shoes/boots?
The only time I wear these type of socks are with my walking boots or pair of Trickers (which are built like a tank and one size bigger) hence I have to buy walking boots in size 9.

To be thorough I bring three pairs of socks to my fittings. You can see all three in each of the various pictures - Dress, winter dress, and sport.

Looking for some advice regarding sizing...

 

I just took delivery of a pair of Shannons from a fellow member and am wondering if the fit looks off. I don't have too much experience with balmoral boots and was expecting the gap in the lacing to be smaller. These are 9E on the 82 last and I take UK9 in most lasts by other makers (e.g. Carmina Rain/Inca/Forest, C&J 341, Trickers W2298). They feel just a tad bit snug but not uncomfortably so. I think I'd be swimming in a 9.5. Perhaps I should try a 9F... Anyway, here are some fit pics (Vass F in 43 for comparison):

Based on the UK9 in C&J I believe the recommended size would be 9.5E in EG, but YMMV.

I don't own any E.G. oxford boots myself only 3 E.G. derby boots. On my derby boots there is no excess space between the shaft of the boot and my legs, while still having about a CM of distance between the facings at the height of the highest eyelets/speed hooks. If there is no excess space between the facings you cannot tighten the shoes further if needed.

You look to be wearing casual (thicker) socks, yet you still have a sea of room around the shaft, I would personally dismiss these based on that sole reason. Furthermore I prefer there to be more space between the facings especially when the boots are new, because with wear they will become roomier in places where the leather is prone to stretching as well as in the toe box area due to the cork filed sole to compressing. If the facings are already meeting then you won’t be able to tighten them properly once they have become roomier.

Instep looks good. The facings should close further with time, but it's no biggy. Shaft looks OK too. I'm not of the opinion that the shaft needs to follow the leg. 
Just go with your instinct. I'm sure you have experience with what adapts and what does not.
