I have both in different sizes but i find when i sized up in the 82 last, there is some heel slippage which irritates me. 202 fit me fine

Was it an issue of width?
All around, I can only wear 82 last in boots and that is if I go a half size down in length and increase a width from E to F. You should keep in mind that I never had a chance to try 202 last in F width.

I think i would be the same also for the 82; same size as 202 but in a F width but of course this has not been tested yet

I have the Dover in 606 and Galway in 82, both size UK10E. I also get a little heel slippage with the Galway, but I don't know that I'd want to size down. I will say that the two lasts feel pretty different (with the 82 longer and the 606 'grabbing' and supporting my foot more) but it's hard to compare the two given that one is a boot and the other a shoe.
