Here in the UK I have mostly seen E and F width, sorry but I am not familiar with any D width shoes. If the shoes are slightly big you can use an insole but you will feel very uncomfortable if they are too tight.

I agree wholeheartedly.

Never truly understood this myself, but this is what EG say...

D is narrow.
C is quite narrow.

E is regular width
F is wide width (normal width on boots for use with thick socks)

I am not calling into question your experience. And there is no doubt many in the US carry many EG "D" widths.

I have corresponded directly with EG about precisely this issue. They do not label their shoes any differently for the US market. So an EG "D" in the US is the same as an EG "D" in the UK. An EG "E" in the US is the same as an EG "E" in the UK.

Anyone who can comfortably fit into a "e" width can purchase "d" width without any hesitation.

EG D widths are more narrow than EG E widths.

Also, because EG shoes are individually lasted, every shoe fits ever so slightly different.

Sounds like I should of bought a 11E instead of 11.5E if my 888 are 11.5D :-(

 

Will have to put these Galways up for sale.

I think you'll be fine!
I've never really noticed much difference between an EG D and the E.

It's not the width, it's the length. I'm normally a 11UK.

I'm not so sure. The D width fits me quite well, and E is certainly too wide.

I have worn D and E widths. I personally prefer the E; I have a pair left in D and although I can wear it all day, it is definitely tighter than I would like. This is unfortunate because RL typically does their runs in D widths so I miss out on nice sales.

consider a full sock liner. I order them with all of my mtos and had them put in my previous purchases that came with half liners.

Quick answer: the Nevis has a squared apron by design - this is not a flaw. I measured the width at that point across both the Dover and the Nevis and, confirming my visual impression, the boot is wider.

I'll take some close-up photos to illustrate this...

LS7,

Can you comment on this post by ThinkDerm? I have a Galway on 82 last in fact the very same boot that you are selling in your classified. Galway on 82 last is marked E width. You have a Nevis on 606 last? Is it marked F or E width.

I am considering buying either Nevis or Galway on 64 last (probably both). I have been reluctant to pull the trigger so far. I wonder if Nevis or Galway 64 are indeed wide in which case I wonder if I should size down a half a size from my usual width.
