And the 32 and 202 to the 606?
@puffy and @patekman

well i personally like the 606 on the Dover best because i love the squarish last with the cheeks and for some reason the 606 always reminds me of a hamster..

the 32 is more uniform and more commonly found in the japanese market... 202 and 606 are more recent and I find the 202 is less cheeky when compared to the 606

therefore in terms of cheekiness 606 > 202 > 32

Does that mean the 606 has a lot of room for your feet to slip around? Do you have to size down in the 606?

I can recommend the 606.
It is a great fit.
I wear the same size in all EG
Cheers. Do you just grab the same size across all brands? I'm eyeing out a 606 Dover, but not sure if it's too risky buying without trying. I'm the same size across all JL and C&J lasts, no exception.

same size for 32,606 and 202 for me

EG is typically half size up from your CJ

I wear same size in all EG lasts I own, which is a half size larger than CJ and JL. A few people do size the same though and I think that provides a tight fit out of the box.

Thanks. I think sizing up 0.5 to EG from JL, C&J etc seem to be the done thing. But also heard that go your usual size and when EG is broken in, you have a superb fit.

Does anyone have the 505 last? I personally find the 202 overly long and narrow. The rounder curves on the 505 might appeal to me more.

Edward Green will never be a good fit for a certain type of feet no matter what size or width you choose. Mine for example.

I wear a UK 9 in Crockett Jones, John Lobb, Church's, Trickers ........... However, when I go with the UK 9 E in Edward Green they are a bit short and tight. Also, when I put the shoe side by side with mentioned brands in the same size, the Edward Green is obviously shorter by just looking from the outside.

When I go with the half size up from the mentioned brands, the shoes end up being a lose fit with a bit of a heel slip.

Have you ever tried on a UK 9.5D? In theory this might be able to solve your problem, because according to your post, a UK9E is too short, but I assume the width is fine, because you did not mention any issues pertaining to it.

So the next logical step would be to only size up 0.5 in length, but if you go UK9.5E you are also going up 0.5 in width compared to the 9E.

If however you go with a UK9.5D, in theory you will get a similar width to the UK9E, but get the 0.5 size increase in length you are looking for.
