I like that Edwards extends the discount to shoes that they don't have in stock, but will obtain from various makers to fulfill orders. fing02[1].gif

^ does that offer include mto? or other models? or just sold out sizes?
post #4669 of 19606
Emailed to order but was told only for items in stock?

for styles that is on the website, even though they may not have a certain size, they will order it from EG direct and apply the discount.

Sorry to hear that has since changed. At around this time last year, I was given the opportunity to order any stock EG shoe available from the factory in my size. And iirc, the discount was also applicable to MTO orders.

I remember reading some discussion in various threads (including, perhaps, this one) over the past six months or so about EG's shoe trees, and whether they are lasted or not, and so I thought that I'd cross-post the following post from the Australian Members' thread, in case any EG owners are interested.

I have EGs on both the 202 and 606 lasts and the shoe trees are quite different. The 202 and 606 lasts are related - the back to middle of the last is the same shape for each, but whereas the 202 last has a wider, classically "almond"-shaped toe, the 606 last has a more modern, slightly chiselled toe box.

Here are a couple of photos:

Shoes - 202 on top, 606 on bottom:



Trees - 202 on top, 606 on bottom:




It might be difficult to see in a two-dimensional photo, but as well as having quite a different toe shape on the shoe trees, with the 606 last shoe tree being quite a bit narrower at the toe and widening more sharply as it moves back towards the middle, the 606 shoe tree is also lower at the front, with a sharper rise up towards the pronounced "instep" of the shoe tree.


So, in conclusion, EG certainly used to make shoe trees that were made for specific lasts, even for related lasts such as the 202 and 606 lasts. However, I don't know if that is still the case and it would be interesting to find out.

I have no need to, because I have several pairs of EG shoes, with lasted shoe trees!

However, there were some recent comments in the Australian Members' thread and elsewhere about how EG's shoe trees are not lasted, so I thought that I'd post the above photos and info to let people know that my EG shoe trees, at least, are made for specific lasts.

thanks for the toe shape comparison
post #4679 of 19606
np, i would also add the the 202 and 888 lasts are slightly wider with a slightly lower toe box
post #4680 of 19606
Anyone have experiences with the 184 last compare to other EG last such as 82, 606 or 888. Thinking of picking up a pair of the Piccadilly loafers from the EoM sale, not sure if I should size down half size.
