I have a good deal of experience with EG "F" widths. I agree with Sevenfold with regard to the 202 last. I would say the 202 F is designed for a wide foot that also has a lot of volume--wide and fat, for lack of a better term. However, I would disagree with regard to the 888 last. The 888 "F" is a wide foot but normal volume.9uLlxh

I have said the same thing. Funny I can't find a good fit with the 202 or the 184 (loafer last) but have no problems with either the 82 or the 888. I am chalking this up to wide forefoot (basically flat across the top) and narrow heel.

To all owners of an EG Dover, I need help with sizing. Before I start, I'm trying to avoid the MTO option. I had my foot sized by EG during a recent trunk shoe and they recommended a 6.5E UK in a 202. I tried that on and they weren't half bad on my wide feet. I recently went to buy the Dover in the 606 thinking its the same. The left fit perfectly but my right had issues. The left side of the big toe was up against the shoe which is then slightly mushing the next toe. Therefore I cannot wiggle my toes. Plus the right side was tight but I'm sure that will stretch. So here's the thing. I have wide feet and my right is a 1/4 longer then my left. Should I try to stretch these out (will they stretch enough) or should I go a size up to a 7UK?

Do you know which of your foot is larger (typically one is larger) and did they size you on that foot? If not, that might explain the discrepancy since the difference might be enough to make one uncomfortable. I don't know if discrepancies are significant enough for many to warrant different length x width combinations though. The option of going a size up (or wider) is then your left shoe might then feel loose. Then it comes to what you can live with (and afford). If you are not happy with the fit then bespoke (which I don't think EG does anymore) might be the way to go since MTO will probably just do sizing differences.

It is always hard to tell unless you've worn shoes for a long period of time and see which last works for you. My Dovers are 6.5/7E but on the 82 and they fit really well (best out of all the different shoes that I've tried and owned). Good luck with your fitting!

EG did size my larger foot (the right) only. On the Chelsea in a 202, it works good enough. I was assuming it would be the same on a 606. Yea that is the dilemma on the smaller one. What I wanted to see if people who have it can comment on how it stretches out or if they had the same problem as I have. I know using a local cobbler, who can stretch it, is an option but I want to see if these can break in first.

Also the place I purchased from only has it on the 606.

I have two Dover models on the 606 and one Dover model on the 202. I take the same size for each. For the Dover model, I prefer the 606 to all others.

For my feet they fit similar. I didn't need any of them to stretch so I can't opine on that. In other words, my pairs were not too tight out of the box. Good luck.

If the shoes basically fit and you like them buy them. they will usually change and adapt.

If not you can always get the ugly shoe stretcher device.

I mean it is not like your buying a house or a car. It is just a pair of shoes. Compromises will be made. Hell you probably didn't think of your wife/gf as the most interesting woman in the world but you have adapted to it, so shoes should be no problem

Unfortunately I have foot problems because of the shape of my foot (it's wide, especially in the mid-foot). I always have issues when buying any shoe. Trust me, it's not by choice. I play ice hockey and I cannot wear any standard skate, I had to get it custom made. Again, not by choice. So you don't know me and keep your comments to yourself.

My wife wears an extra thin sock on her smaller foot with most of her shoes.

I find the 202 to fit me a little bigger than the 606, but not enough to make much of a difference.
