    Yes, it is indeed. It is currently in stock at Citi Shoes NYC as well as EG Jermyn Street. I own it on 202 and love it.

    Discernible difference in appearance is that the 606 toe is a bit more square, whereas 202 is more round. 202 was the baseline last off of which 606 was designed, so they're similar in more ways than they are different. Fitwise, the 202 will be a bit roomier, esp in the forefoot and toe box.

    Is there enough difference that it caused you to go with difference sizes in these two Lasts?

    Nope. The fit is the same for me, even though 202 feels a bit roomier. Certainly not enough to warrant sizing down however (and yes, I've tried sizing down and that doesn't work for me, though some may do so). I recall reading 202 v 606 threads in the past and the vast consensus is same size across both lasts.

    Thanks, and even though I haven't done any extensive research this appears to be the consensus in regards to what I have seen so far. I'm considering getting a Dover on the 606 and I just wanted to have idea in regards to what size I might need.

    Dover on 606 looks great. I prefer it on that last compared to 202.

    Actually I'm getting the Dover in Mahogany CC with Dainite on the 202 as part of the GMTO. However I'm considering getting it in Doak. But if I get it in Doak I think I want it on the 606 Last.

    Dovers are great on both lasts. My recommendation is to start with 606 Doak and then go from there. It is the most quintessential of all EG shoes, as many have said before me.

    Great recommendation and your probably right, however it appears I'll be doing this one backwards. But hey, I figured the Mahogany CC Dover was to good to pass on at the time.

    Nope. I finally picked up one of my long-awaited shoes: BEAULIEU! I'm set with my EG's now and everything after is just icing.

    Now I just need to unload all the other shoes that never fit properly... oh JL, how I wanted to make you work...

    For me the biggest difference is how the last angles from the ball of the foot to the toe box. It's a bit sharper than the 202. The toe is a bit deceiving. I really don't see the toe of the upper as square...it is more how the sole is shaped. The sole has a square front, but the toe of the upper is still round.
