I just received my EG fawsley's from the sale and I'm wondering why the shoe is labelled as a 8/8.5 on the box and inside the shoe. Â I was told they were a size 8UK. Â Does the 8.5 refer to the US size? Or is this some sort of in between size? Â They are in fact slightly big for me and I'm usually a US 8.5.
Yes, in Edward Green shoes size 8 / 8 Â½ means English and American sizes. Then comes a letter, indicating the width (either D, E, or F) and then the last number. The "Fawsley" comes frequently on the 606 last which in my experience is the most generous of all EG lasts. (It is supposed to be identical to the 202, although with a square toe). I find it bigger than 202. What width do you usually take in American 8 Â½ shoes? What width and what last come your EG shoes in? Maybe that solves the problem, why your shoes are a bit on the big side.
