Also, what are your best fitting shoes/boots and sizes?
Viberg 2030 / 1035 / 2040 - 8.5 E (testing out a 9E soon to see if that will give me better width
Alden Barrie - 9E
John Lofgren - 9E

not the best sizing advice but I take usually the manufacturers recommended sizing advice (0.5 - full down from brannock BUT from H2T measurement)

I think I'd still stand by my original recommendation. 202 or 72 in F would just be blobby imo. But you could give 82 in F a shot

I just put in two Galway MTOs - one 82 and the other 202, but both in F. I hope you're wrong!

I thought you had a pretty standard width foot, just high volume. Why did you go with the 202 in F?

Because I have a wide fit. I could really use the extra 2-3mm of width. We'll see if I was wrong.

Flat footed, high volume, short toes 😞
I have much less experience with EG than @jischwar... having said that, your feet look and sound similar-ish to mine except that I don't have short toes. I'd echo what @jischwar suggested. You should be careful with the 82 last in the standard E width as you are likely to find it too narrow at the midfoot and possibly the ball. I have never tried an F width but that is likely a safer bet for you. I have a pair of 82 last Galways that would be problematic if they were any narrower and my feet are a 10E brannock and seem to be a similar shape to yours judging by your pic.

The 202 last is less certain. It is less tapered at the midfoot and a little wider at the ball. You might be able to wear the standard E width but it would be best to get fitted if you are nearby a stockist.

I bet you'll really like the 82F then. 202 could be too much, but you'll just have to see when you try them on

Awesome this is super helpful. Really appreciate the information given my specs. Looking to own a pair soon and will share here with initial thoughts and impressions 🙏🏼

FWIW I find that an F width on 202 feels much wider than an E. More than you would expect from a single width fitting.

The difference between E and F has more to do with overall instep volume than it does with just the width of the shoe. I have made the mistake of assuming that width was the only difference and it's not. I once obtained a Chelsea on the (I think) 202 last in an F fitting to compare it to the E fitting I already had, thinking that perhaps it would be slightly more accommodating for my arthritis. My feet swam in the F width shoes. And, even less easily understood, there was a difference in the length of the shoes from the heel to the vamp.
