Lol! barky, I wear a 9 UK in EG 888 and 82 lasts in an E width. These Bonafe are 9UK as well, They fit slightly wider than the EGs but not noticeably longer. Leather quality is excellent. Between these and my EG Galway and G&G Wigmore it's very close in that regard. If I were splitting hairs, the pebble grain shafts of the 2 Northhampton pairs are maybe a bit more supple than that of the Bonafe. But then, that's comparing two boots that are broken in to one that is brand new.
