The more Galway i see on last 82 the more i feel that i made the right decision picking that last for my Galways.
Super nice, love the bi-colour!
Is it me or does the 82 seem to be the default last for eg boots nowadays?
Anyone know how the sizing on the 82 compares to C&J's 325 last or Alden's Barrie/Modified/Trubalance?
All I can comment on is my experience, I wear an 8 d in the Barrie and a 8.5d in the 202 but I was advised the 82 is a little bit longer than the 202. The pair of dovers I have a smidge looser than I'd like so I will size down to the 8d when I order my boots next month. The choices are Epsom, Shannon, or Galaway. The Shannon is the leader but those galways make a case for be chosen.
Thanks for the info! I'm after some Galways, I think. The Epsom and Shannon are awesome, too, though. Now I've just gotta find a stockist with some in my size, or some at all, even.
I figured I'd go RTW for my first one, since I don't really know my sizing for sure yet, and I don't live too close to a stockist. I'll probably go MTO after that, though.
UK8.5E - CJ 325
9D - Barrie and TruB
UK9E - EG 82
Thanks! Now I really need to think about this, since I'm 6.5E UK - C&J 325 and 7E/7.5D - Barrie and TruBalance.
EG 82/888/33: 6.5/7E
C&J 325/348/337/363/365: 6E
Alden Barrie/TruBalance/Modified: 6.5D
EG 82/888 art best fitting lasted shoes/boots
Thanks--so I need to decide if I'm going to go with the same size as my Barrie, or half a size up from my C&J 325 boots. Would you say the 82 last is a decently wide last or should I go up half a size to compensate?
