^ Probably not if it's true that EG only does veldt on 64 last.
shame. it'd be nicer than a storm welt on many shoes.
Well count me in.
@NAMOR had a list of people interested in but I think since the arrival of Utah leather some of those interested have changed their mind.
As for me I am interested in Nevis on 606 last in Mahogany CC, the soles can me either double leather or Dainite.
@stevent was also interested in Nevis but he needs F width.
Well if we go MTO route we do not need to get storm welt.
After the Galway I ordered my first pair of Dover from skoaktiebolaget.
we still in on this? lets do this before my monies disappear into a vass bank account
I am still on it.
What last did your group choose for the Nevis?
Is it really worth calling it Nevis if not on 606?
dredging up old posts, this site:
seems to suggest that the 808 is a bit narrower at least on the heel, and a bit lower almost everywhere. My japanese is a bit rusty however. I'm a bit bemused as I've spent hours (or so it seemed) discussing my low instep/narrow feet with EG staff, and never once did they say "have you tried the 808?"
I'm keen to try the 808, if it still exists, but with Jermyn St closed for three weeks or more (fingers crossed they will repoen and haven't changed business model to a SF group MTO business only),I wondered if anyone had any experiences? this thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/44015/difference-between-eg-888-and-808-lasts-also-cj-348 from even longer ago also seems to suggest 808 is slim and shallow. it might be the last of my dreams. The 888 is a terrible fit on me (maybe that doesn't bode well).
My understanding is that it is no longer available off the shelf. I wonder if you can order it MTO or top shelf?
The following models, per the EG catolog, are stocked only in/on the 808 last: Gladstone, Walcott, Exeter.
I would not be surprised if they make it available as TD.
Yes, 606! 202 doesn't do anything for me. Just a rounded toe offered by every shoe maker
