    Hello,

    i´m flirting with the idea of ordering a EG mto shoe on the 82 last. Since I have very big feet (US15) I´m not sure how it looks in my size. Does anyone of you share this burden and has EGs in that size and could post a photo of them so I can judge how they look in this size?

    Yours
    Cocteau

    i have a size 14 and i wouldn't do mto on any shoe without first knowing if the last works for my particular foot.

    From my understanding, to get the more tapered toe, the 82/888 makes for a shoe longer than the 202/606.

    IMHO the 82 last looks better in smaller sizes, while the 202 last is beautiful and superior in larger sizes, particularly anything 11 and up. I am talking about appearance, not fit.

    Thats for sure. But before spending 1000 bucks on a plane ticket to visit the next size 15 EG shoe to try it on, wherever in the world it might be located (if it exists) I´d like to have an Idea about what last I´m interested in and what might be right for me.

    Pics anyone?

    It sounds like you might need to travel to an EG/G&G show and be fitted.
