Some more perspective
I can see why you like the 808 better, but the 888 is a perfect fit for me. Can anyone describe the difference on fit?
which do you prefer most?
It's been about 6 months since I've worn either pair; can't remember now..
Found the pic of the axels galway, it is indeed marked in d width. I don't have a narrow foot, yet the narrow fit bothered me. I always assumed it was the standard e width
I noticed that on the website but I always thought this was their way of telling their customers that the UK 11 E was more like a US 11 1/2 D.
I had noticed the inside of my boot was marked as a 11 1/2 D, although confusing I still didn't think EG used Lasts in the D width.
But based on what I have seen here now I know better.
^ you and I are almost the same size. You take a 11 in CJ shell wingtips and Lindrick? You tts 11.5? Not many of you fellas around
Here is the pic of the axels d width galway
I had a pair of Cadogan in 10.5/11D 82. They are definitely not a US D, I had to stretch them a little, width-wise.
its great to be young
eg's d is narrow
Actually, I wear a 11 1/2 CJ shell wingtips and Lindrick. I found the 11 to be to narrow for me.
I find the EG 11 1/2 D to be snug but wearable.
Galway on the 606 last 808 last monk Oundle medallion on the 888 last 808 looks and fits somewhere between 606 and 888, with 606 being the most confortable both in width and instep height. 888 and 82 are the more attractive lasts. I find the shape of 82 lasted Galway far more "photogenic" than the 606 lasted one
thanks for sharing this. Can you comment on the difference between 888 and 808 in respect to fit.
i take the same size in both, uk11.5e. 888 and 808 fit similarly in width however 808 is more comfortable do to the higher toe box.
