    Agree to disagree to an extent... Some people enjoy the collection aspect and take comfort in knowing they have the available resources should the occasion arise. As a hobbiest I tend to look at shoes like a (giant) golf club bag. I may not use my gap wedge on every hole...but I have one in the event I'd like to use it.

    I agree there are always some shoes that don't get worn as much, but are always nice when an occasion comes along...the most important part is that all are comfortable...but I do think shoes simply look better with a bit of wear. They then truly become "yours" and start to develop some patina.

    I always wondered why they stock a UK D (which is narrower than US D). I've corresponded with Axel's and they indicated:

    "The UK D is the Same as a US D. The E with is roughly a 1/16th of an inch wider or the width of a thin dress sock. "

    They suggested I size up to get a proper fit in the 82 last. I decided to pass.

    I guess I am one of the few that agrees with Axel's view of the D width. I wear the EG "D" width and I measure a US "D" width.

    All I know and care about is that a D width fits me better!

    I wonder too...

    Hmm... Interesting: When I got in touch with Axel's to ask about the UK D width, they indicated UK D would be too narrow for me.

    I am a U.S. D width and UK E width works very well for me on pretty much all EG lasts.

    They did not suggest I size up to get an adequate width. So, it appears you did well just passing.

    I am curious: Did they suggest you size up one full size or half a size?

    Here's the comment. I was asking about the Galway on 82 last.

    "The 82 is a narrow last so many people with wider feet size up 1/2 size so it fits more like an E width.
    We have both the 10.5/11 and 11/11.5 in stock. "


    I'm a measured US 11D with a slightly high instep and slightly wide foot (though I've never needed a US E width). The EG 202 last fits great in a 10.5/11E (UK size). I tried the on Sid Mashburn's Dover on 606 in a UK 10.5/11 and it felt snug all over.

    I'm really kicking myself for not jumping on the Superdenim Galway makeups on 202 and 72. They were such a steal before they stopped shipping to the US. I love a few of their models. I think the 72 would work well based on what I've read.

    Lucky!! Wish it worked for me.
