Not it mine.  I wear E width in all my EG. F width in G&G is only slightly wider if at all.  I can't wear E width G&G without going up a half size (to UK 9.5) which results in a shoe that is too long.

 

 

Wait so an E in EG fits you fine, width wise? How about instep?

Pretty serious... but I was looking these over the weekend, GG Galway vs Glencoe and every detail in the GG is just perfect. Footbed is also so comfortable. The finish is perfect vs the EG finish that I have in two Galways with handfull of minor flaws, different finishes though.

I wear 82, 64, 888 and 606 all just fine in a UK9 E width.  And instep is fine (though a bit tight on the 888). 82 and 64 are both Galways.

Also got Glencoes and love them (even if they are a little darker than expected). Still waiting for my first Galways from February order (EG quality control issue).

Stop whining and do something about it. biggrin.gif

Here is an awesome GMTO for G&G F WIDTH WEARERS



Proposed:

Model:  Arran

Width: F

Last:  MH71

Colour / Material - smooth or hatch grain calf in any shade of brown from light to dark.  So, not green blue or purple and not suede.

Sole:  Wensum preferred but not a deal-breaker

Lining: Don't care, it's lining.

Who's in?????
Love it. As a fellow F I'd be in if I hadn't just commissioned a single MTO Arran just a few weeks ago.

Ordered the wrong size in the GMTO Hidro Volpe 74945 last chukka. If anyone's interested in a size 11 or wants to trade a 10.5, let me know.

Yea I know what you mean.

I stick with mainly GG, EB, EG once in a while, Vass, and now St C. I'm always open to others if they can do my crazy size and are of high quality, but all of the shoes Skoak caries are high quality.

It says something about a store when their lowest quality product is Carmina, which happens to be their only brand that can't make my size. Haha
