    I have some EG for RLPL shoes on the 100 last that I like a lot. I'm wondering how this compares to both the 888 and the 202 lasts? I ask because the 888 is the best looking to me (and seems similar to the 100 I already have), but there's a pair of captoes on the 202 last on eBay that I'm considering.

    Can someone spell out the difference between those two and the 100?

    The 100 is essentially the 184 with a squared toe. I have shoes on both the 184 and 202 lasts. In my experience they offer very different fits. The 202 offers more room across the toes and over the instep. And because oxfords can be tightened I wear a half size larger in the 202 than the 184. The same size in the 184 (or 100) would slip at the heel. Hope that helps.
