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.

Yeah wish I had a place to try 64 last in person. I just need a little bit of extra width on E normally and with thin socks it'd be ok. Want to wear medium socks with these so maybe E would work but probably going F to be safe. Little bit big better than too small.

Also iirc when the rosewood cc boot was posted a few months ago I believe a few said 64F was super big

Nice, out of curiosity how many of LS models are based on your mto? You pretty much set standard haha

Thanks

EG boots always feel a little bigger and blucher style will also be more forgiving than balmoral

Stevent, whats your typical best fitting EG size? im sure they are all fairly similar and I would recommend same size with 64

It was me. biggrin.gif

While I have found that my 82 boots fit similar to my 82 shoes, the Nevis on the 606 was both longer and wider (twss) than my 606 Dover. So much so that I returned them (and paid the postage to the UK to do so). But perhaps this was an anomaly?

Funny you should say that -- my 82 boots (Galway) fit longer and wider (twss) than my 82 shoes (Wells).

Is anyone going to be visitng EG on the 22nd for the factory sale?

I'm strongly considering it, 9 hour drive though.

Does anyone have any ideas what's likely to be on offer?

Its hit and miss really, depends on your size, and the new factory seconds stock will depend what they have been putting through the factory recently. I went in January, hoping to get a pair of Galway's in my size, there wasn't any then though. They have a large room with all the seconds in (it is like going into a nuclear bunker), and overall when I was there I would estimate that they had around 20 pairs per half-size to choose from. The really good pairs will be bought up by the ebay resellers (see for instance: eBayID: sausages234 ; shoes_of_distinction) and they will probably be there for the sale or send someone to buy on their behalf as they limit 5 pairs per person. I would call the FS to get an appointment for the sales day. The average price of seconds were around £295-395 so 20% is a hefty sum off.

A good summary. Please note that you don't book an appointment on the day of the factory sale, instead you simply turn up and join a queueing system (they have a book of raffle tickets!). You don't have to be there before the sale opens though. I was 20th in the queue and still managed to pick-up 4 staples in a popular size, UK 10E (Dark Oak Chelsea, Dark Oak Asquith, Chestnut Nevis, Chestnut Dover) all on the same day. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Prices are a little higher than you state. My Nevis was just under £500 with the 20% discount included.
