What style EG shoes are you looking for in the D width? I may know someone with an extra pair of 202 Chelsea Mink in D that was a Special Order.
Thanks for asking! I don’t have use for Oxfords so the Chelsea isn’t a good choice for me. I’m always interested in bluchers, monks, or boots and prefer the 82 and 888 lasts depending on style. Sizing is 11UK in monks/bluchers and 10.5 in boots.

I need some fit help.

I wear a 7.5E UK in the 888 last. My foot runs on the narrower side with a lower instep, though I don't require a D width.

I ran across a good online deal on an 890 model, but have never worn that particular last. Are the fits close to equivalent?

Can anyone comment on the difference in comfort/durability regarding R1 rubber soles vs. single leather soles?

Hi gents,

I ordered the Chelsea from linnegatan and was emailed the photos today. They will be my first pair of EG, switching from C&J, and as there are no returns I wanted to make sure I'm not missing anything. I noticed an abrasion on the quarter of the right shoe, but I think that can be buffed out. Is there anything else that may be cause for concern? Thanks.
