Just as the title states can anyone help me with comparing these lasts? I would like to know which one of them is narrower and sleeker?

you cant compare the two lasts by just looking at the 2d pictures (or any lasts for that matter).

the 7000 is a nicely shaped last round toe that runs a bit large. and the vamp plateaus closer to the eyelets than the 82.

i find the 82 more elegant (and is actually the more 'niche'-looking last imo , meaning you dont see this kind of shape too often out there). the lines on it 3dimensionally are complex in a way when you turn and twist the shoe around in your hands in front of you for multiple views. it has more of a 'banana' feature meaning it kind of plateaus more towards the toe and it is elegantly bulbous in the right areas. very elegant. i cant describe it well as you can see. you got to see it in person, especially in the color you want it is superlative. it fits better for me as well. the 7000 last runs a bit big too.
