Does anyone know if it is possible for Edward Green to increase the size and/or width of a pair of shoes during recrafting? If so how much of an increase is possible?

During re-crafting, it's not possible to increase the shoes in size (length), but it might be possible to go up one width (but not more).

With wear the shoes will have stretched somewhat (particular if they were tight and either you or a cobbler, did stretch them manually). Normally the shoes would have gone back onto the original last and all the stretching would be reversed, returning the shoes to it's original size and shape. But if requested, probably, the factory could last them one width up, giving you that extra space which the shoes have required with wear.

Contact the factory and ask. They might not be in a position to give you a definite answer, before they have seen that particular pair of shoes.

Thanks for the replies, I feared as much. Some very sweet EGs are probably going to end up on B&S in the near future.

No, I'd be selling 11.5Ds. I do have some 13Ds I'm going to sell, but they're not EG.
