np, i would also add the the 202 and 888 lasts are slightly wider with a slightly lower toe box

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.

Thanks for the "last" pics. I have shoes and/or boots on all four of those lasts.

Are you saying in your experience the 202 and 888 are wider than the 606? That is interesting .....

Yes. I went down one width to prevent heel slippage - UK9E to 9D. Works well for me.

I have the Winchelsea on the 100 and the Belgravia on the 184

*EDIT - I checked my 184s from Stanley Korshak and they are on the D last. I picked up the Picadilly from Edwards in a 9.5/10 E width. I tried them on and they are definitely a bit too wide. Heel slippage without any break in.

Well, in my experience, the 202 and 606 lasts are as wide across the ball of the foot (as the 606 is, I understand, an adaptation of the 202), but the toe-box of the 606 last is a bit smaller and less accommodating, but still comfortable (for me, at least).

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.

This is the answer, EG has two kinds of trees.
- Round toe (lasts 82/202)
- Square toe (lasts 888/606)

2 width options :
D/E or E/F

Thanks Leaves.

1. How about 808?
2. Why that particular width combination? Would a D/E be too small for an E but an E/F too tight? Wouldn't a shoe tree that purports to fit two widths ends up fitting none?

I have EG shoe trees that are branded "202/606" and "E/F". But maybe that tree model has been discontinued?

Can someone provide more detail here? It would be great to see more info re: 100, 184 and other EG lasts. I am particularly interested in the 184. Tnx.

I have the Montpellier slip on in 184, several pairs in 888 and one in 202. I would say that the 184 is the most narrow in the toe box as it narrows to a point, followed by 888 and then 202.

I (like many) tend to size down one width with slip on shoes to avoid heel slippage, however this was not possible for me with the 184 due to its narrow toe box. It really is quite a sleek shape, particularly in the larger sizes.

Thank you. This is the one last I do not own and I am waiting for a pair of tassels on the 184--I am hopeful, based on what you wrote, that I did the wise thing by not sizing down.

Edit: Then are they more like the 82 last?

Belgravia? Beautiful shoe. :)

 

I have shoes on the 888E/F and 202D lasts. I didn't size down for the 184E, and I don't think I could've done so either.

 

Good luck with your purchase!
