can any of you offer any insight as to the fit for the 888 last and the 82 last? I wear a 9D on the Alden Hampton last and a UK8F on the Alfred Sargent 724 last. Am I correct in assuming that a UK 8.5 should suffice on the 888 and 82 last if I wear the above sizes, or would sizing down to a UK8 be better? Do any of you wear a US 9D? What size do you wear on the EG 888 and 82 lasts?

My size is a lot smaller than yours, but consensus should be 8.5E. I wear 6D Plaza, Aberdeen. I wear 5.5E EG 888 and 82. I managed to put 5E on but too small.

I wear a TTS US 9D and wear 8.5E in both EG 202 and 82 lasts. My feet are pretty normal-neither wide nor narrow- and I would say they pretty much fill out a US9D. EG 8.5E fits me like a glove. Very comfortable.

I have the same sizing: 0.5 up from AS 724.

thanks, that's helpful. is the 'E' designation for EG the equivalent of a D width for US sizes? Are most of the EG lasts pretty similar to one another? for example, if I ordered an 8.5E on the 82 last would I also be an 8.5E on the 888 last?

can anyone suggest a good source for edward green belts in the USA? Either online or brick and mortar is fine.

Just recieved my Galways today, and I have to say the 82 Last fits my feet just like a glove.


NICE! always liked the Galway as a hybrid country boot. Now get some wear on those!

82 is also an excellent fit for me. Edges the 888 and G&G's TG73 by just a little.

Galway is quickly becoming the official boot of style forum. I am waiting mine just like this (I am assuming these have dainite sole) and I have plans for Galway on 64 last and 202 last.

That's correct, these do have the Dainite soles.


Cool, I can't wait to see some pictures.
