And they are only going to get better with time. Nothing better than an EG better that’s has been broken in and aged.Oh, I have no problem with wearing wide width. I just simply couldn't get a wider size when I bought these, so I went with what was still comfortable, but narrower than usual.
They still fit me nicely. My foot feels good. My foot feels supported. But yes, I dare say I'd get a better fit with a wider shoe.
Thanks for your advice on this. It is greatly and sincerely appreciated. I still love these shoes, but I'd definitely go for a wider fit when I add EG #2 to my collection.
I see pairs like that often on eBay. I think though if you do MTO that's an easy problem to solve. But it's costly. I really envy the people who have normal feet that get a decent fit from RTW. Mush cheaper than always needing to pay full price for wide or MTO.Try having feet two different sizes
Fit will always be a compromise unless I buy shoes in two different sizes!
Pictures?I can feel some of the brass nails slightly protruded on the heels of my new (not yet worn outside) EG shoes. Is this normal?
I have compared with an equally new pair of Crocketts handgrade which seems better finished - the nails are all flush, even slightly recessed, in the heel.
It seems like Dover is a very high demand model especially true for dark oak... been looking for a pair but not able to score one at a good price...They are my size but luckily shoes, even the iconic Dover, don't inspire in me the same level of excitement that boots do.
I realize I am an exception in this regard. I bought a pair of deeply discounted BNIB DOAK dovers a couple of years back. After a year of letting them sit in my closet, I tentatively listed them on ebay at a price that I felt was high for a pair that showed signs of handling and shop wear. I set the price (seemingly) high as I wasn't 100% sure I was ready to sell. Got a ton of inquiries right away and to my surprise it sold at my Buy it Now price within a day.
I have the Westminster and the Dover. Completely different shoes. If you want a Dover get a Dover. Applies to anything in life really. If you can afford to get the thing you want it's inherently a good deal.It seems like Dover is a very high demand model especially true for dark oak... been looking for a pair but not able to score one at a good price...
Anyone own Edward Green monk strap shoes? Which model? Does it looks as good as the dover? I still waiting for my Ashby that looks like a Dover with monk strap..
Yes that true... the only Dover that I can find at a discount are those in suede or other calf materials. But the Dover is really a very nice shoes.. I aim to have at least 3 pairs in suede and calf..I have the Westminster and the Dover. Completely different shoes. If you want a Dover get a Dover. Applies to anything in life really.

I also have a Thorpe, a Nevis, an unlined Dover, and a Halifax. None of them are the quintessential Dover makeup despite all of them being 'a Dover with a [thing that makes it a different model]'.
It's unlikely you'll find a Doak Dover at below retail unless it's a retailer discounting it's entire line. Even then often times the best sizes won't be in stock.
Here you go. You can really feel it when you run your fingers across.Pictures?
I would imagine medium brown for burnt pine. Havana Brown is perfect for dark oak. That's the Saphir colours.I wonder what shoes cream do you all use for burnt pine antique calf and dark oak antique calf?
