    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    my understanding is that its not made anymore. The idea of pebble shell has been passed around a couple times before without any luck. but ive never contacted horween firsthand.

    Went to sky valet tonight to look at their remaining selection of EG's and I was able to try on an 8.5UK in the 888 last but was unable to walk for fear of breaking the toe box. The owner indicated that a 9 UK would be perfect. I did buy a pair of C&J Westbourne Brogue Cap toes in an 8UK on the 348 last. Does the 9UK sound accurate in EG compared to 8UK in C&J? The owner indicated that EG runs small.

    I neither have a cordovan boot nor a Galway but this sounds like a killer deal for around 1500 usd. Plus trees I presume

    If this materializes this certainly would be one heck of great way of killing those two birds with one stone.

    I wear 9.5UK in the C&J 348 last and 9.5UK/10US in EG888, but the EG is the snuggest possible fit and the 348 is a very good fit with a touch of room (but not so much room I could size down to 9). A half size bigger in the 888 than the 348 is quite normal I understand. A full size suggests the last might not be right for your foot and that going up a full size so it's big enough in the toe box will make it too wide or too big in the heel. I'd definitely try before you buy unless you can return or exchange without a hassle.

    Great info, thanks. I have one other place to try on a 9 in the 888. Is there an EG last that's larger in the toe box than the 888?

    ^agree. 606 and 888 toe are similar widths however the 606 toe might be EGs most voluminous (second to 64)

    My wallet trembles in fear as I concur. I'd be interested in seeing how such a makeup would turn out
