I feel like us low-instep guys are missing out!

We have an E-fitting (narrow) 946 line coming soon. We hope this will cater to this specific need.

End of business day.

See my issue is that the EB I have (74945 last) fits absolutely perfectly in the heel and width. But the instep is soooo high that I needed an insole insert. If they could develop a style that keeps the width the same but the instep lower, I'd probably have 5 pairs by now.

Not really. I had a same problem with 82/888 lasts, these were too long for me so I had to size a half a size down but go up in width.
202/606 I take the regular width.

Reverse split toe (i.e. EG Dover):

Just to clarify about NST, which I love:

 

1.-The shoe of the NST Alden: Apron a toe ornamentally hand stitched (not a seam). Plain vamp, non functional.

 

2.-The  NST Dover: Toe "skin stitched" ( technically called "round closed stitch"), very difficult to do.  The apron is stabbed and the seam  is "split and lift" stitched. Both seams hand sewn.

 

3.-There are some others variations of NST. Eg,  JMW Demi-Chase that use machinery for the "open" toe and for the apron (adding two row of stitching here). 

 

I do not know what is a Reverse Split Toe, but from the pics, the EB NST seems to me to use same both tecniques than the EG Dover.

 

Really nice shoe, indeed.!!

What about Carminas split toe? What kind of stitching is it?

Stabbed

Apron clearly  "split and lift" .  Toe is stabbed but not using "skin stitched" technique.  Both probably made by hand.

Looks like I might be popping my EB cherry

1) Anyone has real life pictures of expresso brown from EB? 

 

2) It is similar to Dark Oak from EG?

3) Is is possible to get flushed toe taps on in-stock EBs?

Is the Enzo 74945 last a similar fit to the 804? I'm really liking the new brown cap toe.

This is a beaut @Leaves! Hope you'll be restocking?

Edit: Good news! I see stock has been updated. As you were.

1. We will snap some today.
2. It's darker usually - this is close but still darker (well, depends on which DOAK you mean as DOAK is notoriously inconsistent).
3. Sorry, only for MTOs.
