The same thing here, 82 and 888 lasts do not work for me.

I guess I'm glad I'm not alone. I've never found a pair of 82's that worked for me, 888 has been hit and miss. I picked up 3 pairs on the 888 last month that were surprisingly comfortable, but I've had a number of others that were just too narrow.

I have an 82 lasted bal that is crazy snug - it works because I had it stretched (I only bought them because they were a steal).

Axels sells its Galways on the 82 and only in D width. They are too tight for me - and I have a medium to slightly narrow foot.

Thanks for the feedback. Looks like we're foot twins. Someone (I think it was Hillary from EG) told me that the 82 last is the 888 last with a rounded toe. That cannot possibly be true. As Tony Gaziano said to me about Hillary, "Well, she didn't design the lasts, did she?" wink.gif

I agree - that is not true in my experience. However, I do like both the 888 and 82. I save my 888 purchases for dressier shoes, and go with other lasts for more casual shoes/boots or for shoes/boots pulling double duty (dressy and casual).

The alderley is a very sharp boot.  We might have to do it again in a smooth calf.

I was thinking the same thing. The brogue on the back of the boot is really kind of cool.

I do like the Alderley boots a lot but just find them a bit dainty for a country boot, the Galway on the 64 last is the mother of all boots IMHO.

Adderley is a city boot and trying to country it up would be doing it a disservice!

Adderly is a little bit country, and a little bit rock 'n rohhhh!
