It's also possible the SA isn't aware this is actually a UK E. He was pretty confident it wasn't. Anyway, I thought I would post something here and see if anybody had any ideas.

To my understanding the size specified by Edward Green should be interpreted literally, so a 11/ 11 ½ E should be read as: UK11E & US11 ½ E.

This I what I understood from Alex from E.G. Paris: if you go up in width, example given: from E to F then the F with has the same width as an E in half a length longer. A few examples to illustrate:
- A UK11E has the same width as a UK10 ½ F
- A UK11D has the same width as a UK10 ½ E

For what it is worth, I have also come across E.G. shoes on eBay in the C-width (marked as such) and also lots in the D, E an F widths.

I guess I was just so used to seeing E and F, I wasn't aware they also had C or D.

 

 

Then again I hadn't really been looking at these shoes prior to last year.

He told me my boot was al 11 1/2 D on the EG D Last. I mentioned that it was my understanding that EG used E, F, and maybe G. I asked him if maybe this didn't equate to the UK 11 E. He insisted that they use the EG D Last instead of the UK E Last to keep the boot from being so chunky. He said the D Last is sleeker than the UK E by a good 1/16 of an inch.

I'm confused.
ddd, don't mean to add to the confusion, but when it comes to width, I believe EG does not do any conversions (e.g., they mark 'E' for the UK market then use 'D' in the US market like C&J does for Barney's). I have a pair of Chelseas (marked D) made for Barney's and they are definitely narrower than my other EG shoes in E. Regarding size, I think it's pretty much understood that X(UK)/X+.05(US).

What last is the Galway on?

The one I have and the one I am getting will be on the 82.

 

I understand they did make these on other Lasts as well. However I don't know if they still do that.

 

 

Maybe you should consider getting a Galway.smile.gif

I didn't know that.

 

 

You wouldn't happen to have a picture of the Galway on the 64 Last do you?

Why aren't the new Galways made on 64? I think I remember someone answering this in an earlier post..

The stock Galway (veldtshoen) sold at EG boutiques are on the 64.

That's it! Thanks GB. The 64 is a perfect last for a country boot. However, when it comes to hardier footwear, I have to lean towards Tricker's/AS. I save EGs for smart shoes and boots.

ddd... maybe in due time. smile.gif

Creasing on forefoot. He's right BTW.

Thank you.

 

Yes, this looks quite a bit more hearty or sturdy.

 

However since I have plenty of those kind of boots, I rather like it more on the sleeker 82 Last.

Remember just because you have an Islay, one can also enjoy a Galway.smile.gif
