Lasted Shoe Tree question

Is it a bad idea to put an 89 EG Last (size 10D) into a pair of EG shoes that are 10C on 202 last? The trees fit, just not sure if I'd be stretching them badly. Any insight appreciated...

Are you sure the trees are lasted? Most EG trees are based on the 202 and I think you will be fine. I do this, too with my 888 & 202 lasted trees interchanging them without any noticeable problem.

the trees came with RLPL Peerings, so actually I'm not sure if they're specifically 89 lasted...

Probably 888 shaped. Do they look like these?

They should work in your shoes with no problem. The ones pictured above came in size 13D shoes & fit perfectly in my Carminas on the Alcudia last whereas my 202 trees size 13D do not.

I know. I actually tried to lacquer the non-lacquered ones I have. Might still do the rest.
