Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 604

post #9046 of 15013

What's the purpose of having a place to talk about EG if your forbidden to discuss any and everything EG? I've yet to have any negative experiences personally, but see no reason why those experiences if and when they occur should be forbidden. It certainly won't hurt me, and besides I might even learn something.

You're absolutely right. However, there seems to be quite a bit of hysteria on these forums when it comes to shoes (and probably in other areas too). Some seem to completely obsess over very small details, instead of just accepting that these shoes are not, and never were intended to be, perfect in every single aspect. So the basic recommendation I would give would still be "relax and just enjoy your shoes".

I agree, ddd. There isn't much complaining here, anyway. Besides who would complain "Ugh...look how perfect my shoes are". A little bashing thrown into the mix doesn't hurt anyone. I don't forsee pages and pages of loose stiching, nicked welt, scratches, dents and uneven finishing posts like some other areas of the forum.

This is one of the reasons why I joined this forum, as I thought people here ARE obsessed and willing to discuss about very small details. It's what makes the difference between true admirers (Which I'm sure you are too) and ppl who randomly shop ..

I thought to raise awareness about this, as no matter how minor and ignorant this seems, I for example, wouldn't like to purchase the shoes again with this type of toe box, and the next time will surely pay the attention ..

Sorry, but this has nothing to do with the creasing in the first place. I was referring to the fallen like part of the toe box area as other member complained too. I received my new shoes with this "issue" also.

At the time I noticed it and other member complained here too, it was too late to return them to the Shop, as I already scuffed the soles.

I think this issue has been sufficiently addressed - at least in terms of what regulars to this thread care to contribute to the issue.

Let's be pragmatic here - you can either sell them, wear them, or put them away in the cupboard to gather dust.

Picked up a pair of Chelseas in size 11 F, hoping to get a baseline from my typical GG 10.5 G, and it is not going to work. Curiously, it's too big for once (which is usually the opposite problem for me). The width is almost too generous, the laces fully close, and even so the heel is loose. A tongue pad did not help much, so back to the drawing board.

The only caveat is that they are couple year old EG, with the full tan sole. Shoes had a few days shop wear. There might be a touch of leather stretching I suspect, which just complicates my dilemma.

So, I think I will once again have to postpone EG buys, until I can try multiple models in person at some store. My end of year vacation to NY seems to make more sense every day...

202 or 82 last Chelsea? It's commonly remarked 202 is a more generous last than 82 and 888. I have a slightly wide foot, probably close to an American E and I found 82 and 888 E half size down a good comfortable and snug fit when I last tried on EG at BB.

Lately I've found I go half a size down from my US size for 888 and 82 and can go a full size down in the 202 (all E width). I am a U.S. D width however.

Here is a pic for what it's worth, EG Chelsea on the 82 last:



I felt the DG70 was a bit too pointy for my taste, but this last is just perfect IMO. Too bad they don't fit...

So, out of curiosity, what does EG call a side gore boot?
