I've seen it sometimes characterized as EG sells a UK E which is equivalent to a US D. If that is the case, why do many retailers in the US stock D widths as standard?
Perhaps there is no standard and EG has two common widths. If that is the case I'm curious to know how two of their biggest US retailers (Leffot and Leather Soul) made the decision to carry different widths for their RTW shoes and I wonder what was EG's advice to the companies. Perhaps West Coast Americans have wider feet?
Regarding EG's recommendation to LS and Leffot, I guess you can always ask Tom and Steven respectively. I typically wear US D (sometimes E depending on the maker) and for EG, the E fitting is excellent. Others may have different experiences though.
