    Very nice. How does the Forest last feel in comparison to the EG 888? Did you get the same size?

    Thanks Dan! Really a fantastic shoe. Color is deep and rich. And the last suits my feet very well.
    So i took these in the same size as my rain/queens lasted shoes - 8.5UK. I took the EG in 9.0UK. The forest last is definitely snug. I thought I read most people take the same size as rain so thats what I did. Im not sure if I should have went with a 9.0UK in this last.

    Thanks for the reply gentlemen. I sent an email, but it took them a week to respond. Also, I guess he read the email in a hurry because he thought I wanted to place a MTO, so he didn't address my question. I just thought it might be faster to get an answer here. I'm guessing theyre just really busy with all the different MTOs. Don't blame them because they have a record number of MTOs going on.

    I've paid my last few MTOs 100% upon placing the order, given the strong Dollar. At least in my experience, if you ask, they are happy to take all of your money up front.

    I think it's funny that we can bet on currency rates by what percentage of our MTO/pre-ordered shoe purchases we plunk down. I would probably pay the minimum and no more.

    I just looked at the prices in USD and thought there must be a mistake. Under $800 for EG, man skoak is incredible. Even at 20% more it is still an attractive price point.

    The highest the exchange rate has gone in the last month is 1 USD to ~8.5 SEK. My sincerest apologies to all the Greek Styleforum members, but more sabre rattling, please!

    thanks to both of you for your help with sizing. I hear from many that once you get into EG it's a slippery slope.

    Trying to figure out if I need EG lasted trees and extra pair of laces :)

    ^^^ What he said. They are still a cut above generic trees in terms of fit, but whether they are worth the extra premium to you probably comes down more to aesthetics than performance. I have EG trees in about half my EG shoes.
