Thoughts on whether 82 last boots would look strange/off with ridgeway (for Galway) or double Dainite soles (for Shannon). I know ridgeway on 64 last is common and most would do single Dainite for 82 last. Thanks.

Dainite or leather for 82 Galway (I have both)
leather for 82 Shannon

You could consider the R1 rubber sole which is as thin as leather and supple and light, but hard wearing and appropriate for wet weather.
It is the EG equivalent of the GG wensum.
I have handled both and feel they are quite perfect for nicer shoes which can meet wet conditions

Thank you all. Good advice all around.

Would you go with the same width in the 64, given you would now and then wear thick socks in your boots (only slightly thicker, not bulging home knitted ones). As you know, my version will be shearling lined, but I guess it shouldn't play a role given that it's only in the shaft and that it's a brogue boot.

Thanks in advance!

My 202's fit me wider than the 64 I tried. I'm going up in width.

EG won't do the Ridgeway on the 82, so no worries there. I have 1/2 Dainte which is a good compromise for either boot, I think - avoids clunkiness.

^ Aha! I suspected they wouldn't even allow it but good to know for sure. Thanks.

A quick question to the EG experts out there:

 

Is the F-width the standard width of the 202 last?  I ask this because my local store only carries the 202s in the F width (whereas they have the 606 and 888 in E widths).

Been thinking about this shoe from LS years back:

Any interest in a GMTO?

Model: Sandringham (with thistle)
Color: Cognac (Cigar) Crup
Last: 202 (believe only last 202 is available on)
Sole: Double leather / dainite
Welt: Storm

And those with 64 last experience, do you find it wider or narrower than 202 / 82? Seems to be differing opinions

E is always the standard width in all EG lasts. F is always wide.

Wider than 82 and about the same as 202. I'm the same size in all three lasts.

You know it's really maddening, I heard somebody on the forum saying that Nevis boot on the 606 last feels much wider than Dover shoe built on the same 606 last.
My understanding is that 64 last is little wider to accommodate thicket socks.
It's very difficult to determine if one should go up in width because if you do you might need to go down in size, for example if you are 10.5 E than you should take 10 F otherwise shoe might feel long.
