    Maiden voyage for my first EG:

    I'm really loving this last. It fits snug but is not uncomfortable. Perfect amount of wiggle room in the toes, length is spot on.

    Thanks tifosi! I am kind of worried how well they fit - I may be making a few more purchases before February is over [​IMG]

    Forgot to post the other day. All this snow/cold weather makes the new Galways perfect. It gives my acorn Galways a break and I have my AS Hannovers (with commando soles) for the REALLY bad days; Columbia snow boots for the Day After Tomorrow times. Welcome to MI. [​IMG]

    I'm thinking hard about doing the Galway pre-order and have obtained sizing advice from Skoak. Can anyone here also tell me how you sized the EG 82 last in relation to G&G MH71 and Carmina Rain or Forest lasts? I measure US9D on Brannock and the G&G MH71 in 8.5E is a near perfect fit for me. Thanks!

    I wear a UK 9 in both my 82-last Galways and in Carmina Forest. I find the MH71 too narrow in a 9E - I need an F width. EG's E width is wider across the board than G&G's, IMO.

    We are the same size MGD (9D on Brannock)! I take 8UK in Forest (superb fit) and ordered Doak/CC Galway on 82 last in 8.5E UK from our good friends at Skoak (tried it before ordering at local BB).

    Carmina Rain in 8UK had some heel slippage and I decided to drop that last from my collection.

    Don't forget, this IMO. Good luck.

    Are caramel suede shoes an acquired taste? I like some of the other suede shoes but can't get myself to like the caramel color!

    Thanks you gentlemen, I appreciate the advice. Very helpful.

    @Steel28 Gabriel was a little concerned that 8.5E might be a bit long for me, but based on your experience, it seems like it shouldn't be an issue.
