    Does anyone have both a pair of John Lobbs in a last 8000 and an Edward Green in a last 808? Is a size 10 UK in a lobb 8000 the same size as a 10 UK EG 888? Is one larger than the other?

    Thanks,

    I do, I do.

    I find the 808 and the 888 to run basically the same, which is 1/2 size smaller than the 8000.

    So to put that into context, I take an UK8E on both the 808 and 888 and a UK7.5E on the 8000. I am a US 8.5D.

    Sure thing. I'll try to post some photos for comparison purposes later tonight. Any particular shoe in mind, as I might have it to include in the photograph.

    No, no model in mind. I wanted to know before I bid on these:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/John-Lobb-Richar...QQcmdZViewItem

    And you confirmed my suspicioun that these are too big for me, which is dissapointing, but I'm sure something will come up.


    Great boots Roger, I wish he had my size too.

    That's right, you bought the Newburys from under me during the last EG sale. Is one tighter or looser than the other? I know this sounds kinda lame, and not very accurate, but can you provide external measurements?

    Not that I can tell. Fit is similar

    I'll try to measure mine tonight. Just curious, but how do external measurements help you understand the fit better?

    My right foot is a little wider than my left and if a shoe is too narrow it's painful. Anything narrower than 4.25 I disregard. It's unscientific, but that's the best I can get when bidding on ebay.
