I’ve had them for about 4 years and worn them maybe once every couple months. I have a large collection to rotate through, so these have barely begun to see the wear they are capable of withstanding.

hope that helps.
Thank you. It does help. This model does not have a cap toe, correct? It looks like it does, but I don't know - perhaps the way the polish is?

Nothing. The shoe trees are available as an additional item if you want them. They’re good as new, given that the only thing they do is sit in the shoe bags when the shoes are on my feet; or in the shoes when they’re in storage.

The reason I’m selling them separately is (a) not everyone wants them and (b) they’re heavy, which makes shipping more expensive.

Makes sense. Good point

Are you sure shoe trees would add to the shipping cost? Can you check what would it cost to ship to USA (zip code 60040)?

Also...it says not returns - so there is a risk, since I have never had GG shoes. I am 9.5E in EG Dover 202/606 last for example. Or 9 in Saint Crispin Classic Last.

Given my shoe sizes in other brands/lasts, what is your best assessment of the fit?

Fit is always difficult to nail down, and I understand the risk you’re seeking to minimise. I can’t comment on your own sizing as everyone’s feet are different, but I can offer my own sizing as a reference:

I also wear 9.5E in Edward Green’s 82 last, as well as 9.5 in C&J. I’ve also worn 43.5 in Vass U and F lasts. I was measured for St Crispins as an 8.5G with a bit extra - kinda like an 8.75 I guess.

Hope that helps. I will get a quote for shipping with trees to your zip code.

Thank you. It seems your foot might be wider. I was measured as 9E in St Crispin. Given that, would this Deco last from GG be too wide for me? And how does this last fit you in terms of length and width? It might help to know what is the fit for you in this shoe to compare to mine.

Fit for me is about as good as you can get on a non-bespoke shoe - I like the fit to be snug but not overly tight. Lengthwise it’s exactly where it needs to be.

I don’t notice a significant difference in how these shoes feel compared to my 82-last EG’s, which are also U.K. 9.5E. I don’t know how an 82 feels compared to a 202, but that appears to be our closest point of comparison in terms of shoes we are both familiar with. I was only measured for StC - I’ve never actually worn a pair, so I can’t make an honest judgement about your question.

I hope that helps your decision-making.
