If you have concerns about returns I would not recommend ordering from across the pond (assuming you're in the US). LS also has a conservative return policy. I think from a distributor's standpoint, most will be pretty strict on returns.
Regarding fit, I am a US 7D and I wear 6.5E in the 82.
Thanks for the info. Was I correct then in my assumption of the 82 last, to go down a half size from my US size? Does the 82 last have ample room in the toe box? I've never pulled the trigger on EG before so I'd like to be pretty sure of the fit before I drop $1100
