Probably my oldest pair of shoes now I’ve got rid of my Blundstone boots.

I don't think it's a fair analysis to shove your foot really far forward in a shoe and then say there's heel space. I have a low-er instep so I have this issue where my foot does slide a little forward in loafers but based on some trial and error I think I just need a tongue pad and my normal EG size of 10E works in the 184 last. Even without the tongue pad, the shoes are the right size and they're just not super secure around my heel (due to my foot moving a little forward) but as the sole breaks in it shouldn't be a problem.This is my second attempt to get a good fit for Edward Green loafer... the photo is based on my Edward green Islington 137 last UK9/9.5E with my foot pushed all the way forward. As you can see there are quite a bit of gap there.. is UK8.5E or UK8 on the 184 last a better gamble? I am thinking of getting 2 loafers.. EG Piccadilly unlined Suede Loafer and EG Lulworth calf loafer. Hope I can finally get it right this time and don’t have to return
I think you probably need to try on some of the EG lasts in person, so you can nail down what your fit is.Ok very disappointed that I can’t get any fitting loafer with EG..
today I went to a brick and mortar store to try out Alden Cordovan Loafer LHS 986 on the VAN last and I fit the 8.5D albeit with some tightness but very minimal heel slip. I also tried on the 9D and although this is not tight and can fit on comfortably but experience quite an amount of heel slip... so I think 8.5D is for me. I think with a few wears, the Cordovan leather should expand and I should be able to fit comfortably. Hence i should get UK8/8.5 E on the EG 184 last? Anyone has any experience?
Thanks! 82 last, actually. One thing I noticed about these boots: if you buy any 82 lasted boots or shoes WITH a stormwelt, then that lessens the pointy, elongated appearance of the boot/shoe. It makes the 82 last seem a bit more conservative.Two things
1) Fine for me
2) They are lovely - what last, 202?
Very true, they look significantly less elongated than my 82 last Galways.Thanks! 82 last, actually.
