    To my understanding the size specified by Edward Green should be interpreted literally, so a 11/ 11 ½ E should be read as: UK11E & US11 ½ E.

    This I what I understood from Alex from E.G. Paris: if you go up in width, example given: from E to F then the F with has the same width as an E in half a length longer. A few examples to illustrate:
    - A UK11E has the same width as a UK10 ½ F
    - A UK11D has the same width as a UK10 ½ E

    For what it is worth, I have also come across E.G. shoes on eBay in the C-width (marked as such) and also lots in the D, E an F widths.

    I guess I was just so used to seeing E and F, I wasn't aware they also had C or D.


    Then again I hadn't really been looking at these shoes prior to last year.

    Nice! Now let's see it with the shovel!

    ddd, don't mean to add to the confusion, but when it comes to width, I believe EG does not do any conversions (e.g., they mark 'E' for the UK market then use 'D' in the US market like C&J does for Barney's). I have a pair of Chelseas (marked D) made for Barney's and they are definitely narrower than my other EG shoes in E. Regarding size, I think it's pretty much understood that X(UK)/X+.05(US).

    What last is the Galway on?

    The one I have and the one I am getting will be on the 82.

    I understand they did make these on other Lasts as well. However I don't know if they still do that.


    Maybe you should consider getting a Galway.[​IMG]

    The standard, classic Galway last is the 64.....

    I didn't know that.


    You wouldn't happen to have a picture of the Galway on the 64 Last do you?

    Why aren't the new Galways made on 64? I think I remember someone answering this in an earlier post..

    The stock Galway (veldtshoen) sold at EG boutiques are on the 64.

    That's it! Thanks GB. The 64 is a perfect last for a country boot. However, when it comes to hardier footwear, I have to lean towards Tricker's/AS. I save EGs for smart shoes and boots.

    ddd... maybe in due time. :)

    Thank you.

    Yes, this looks quite a bit more hearty or sturdy.

    However since I have plenty of those kind of boots, I rather like it more on the sleeker 82 Last.

    Remember just because you have an Islay, one can also enjoy a Galway.[​IMG]
