    imo, it's a bit of a gamble, independent of brand, if it's getting better. if i would be in your shoes and you're not married to this style right now. return them and take a chance to try this style in person with an experienced SA at your side. sometimes it's only a little nic nac to have it fixed.

    good luck

    they'll probably break into your feet/shin bone/ankle...

    better return or exchange for a wider size

    Any guidance on the 82 last? In particular, I'm trying to understand the widths and whether to buy D or E. I have read quite a bit on various threads regarding what is considered the "standard" width, but can't confirm what's fact vs. fiction. Some say that the 82 last runs wide, so that a "D" is the medium width, while some say that the "E" is medium width. I would love to try both, but for the fact that I'm trying to score a pair online and need some guidance.

    FWIW, my Alden size is Barrie last 9.5D and in the Lobb Lopez loafer I wear a 9E.

    Many thanks!

    E is more like a US D medium IMO. I have a pair of D that are a little too narrow. My E width shoes are fine OOTB.

    Thanks to all regarding the compliments on the EG's the other day, they are awesome. Finally the first EGs I got that fit correctly.


    FWIW, the 82s I just posted are a 9/9.5 and fit my 9.5US foot perfectly. I take an 8.5 in Lobb lasts, but don't have much experience with Alden.

    Sounds like you are a 9.5UK/10US D in EG

    Dieworkwear, I had this same issue with my Grant. The vamp area and instep are really low and you probably feel pressure at the base of your toes. The first day i tried "breaking" them in, i got blisters. Afterwards I grabbed my show trees from the JL 8695 last (high instep) and left them in the grant overnight. Stretched out just enough and now fit like a glove

    I have about 15 pairs of EG shoes. 10 I have in D width and the others are an E. For me D is a little tight out of the box, but ultimately fit perfectly after 10 or so wears. I have found it to be a little more narrow than other American D makes (e.g. Allen Edmonds) and definitely more narrow than John Lobb's E. The E width is slightly wider to me to John Lobb's E, however, still fit me ok.

    With respect to the 82 this last is very narrow in the toe box. I have 2 pairs in D and my toes were definitely cramped at first. If I were to order another pair on the 82 last I would order in an E.

    I just purchased the "newmarket" boots from Leffor and the D width was a tad tight for me so Steven left them on the stretcher for the weekend.

    Maybe bring them back to him and have him stretch them out a little.

    Thanks NAMOR! Just ordered the Claverton in 9.5/10D on Leffot....it was on sale for $675 (40% off) and the last pair.

    Seems like that was a good deal, unless I'm missing something and the Claverton is the redheaded stepchild of EG???

    Oh, and I suppose I owe you an apology for calling you an a-hole on the Alden thread....[​IMG]

    Call Mark at Edward's of Manchester if you're looking for something stock at EG. He's helping me get some westminster's in dark oak. You get to use the current discount code as well. Hopefully it works out.

    Great purchase! I want those too and Leffot didn't have my size and the only othe place I know of has an 10.5US.


    Nice to know.
