I believe there's an EG workshop sale this weekend (29th) in Northampton. Up to 60% off
Was hoping to make it, but looking less likely now
Surprised there's been no chat so far on the forum... Are you guys keeping you powder dry?
I have as many EG shoes as GG and am a big fan of both. Spend a lot of time lurking (lusting) in both forums as I know many other do Has taken me a while to get to the point of seeing a proper boot (non Chukka/Chelsea) I can get excited about.
[[SPOILER]] We have 2 people interested in a GMTO on a pair of these.Model: ThorpeLast: GG06Colour: Vintage Rioja - Hatch GrainEyelets: Antiqued brassSole: Ridgeway3 more and we're good to go...Any others?
I would definitely prefer the hatch grain over the highland grain. I also like the look of the GG06 on this model - though I love the MH71 on most other models. It gives the boot a less refined look, which works well IMHO - particularly with the RidgewayI think it's probably too much compromise for me with the specs - though I have no doubt it will look greatAnyone else up for something more directly aligned to the VRaivio original?
I was in the GG shop today and saw the highland grains in the flesh. I was expecting to think the browns would be more interesting, but the burgundy is by far the most stunning. Very dark (may be the lighting and sample), but was fabulous.Went to EG to see their equivalent hatch and GG wins hands down.Let me know what specs you are going for - definitely interested
With GMTO, do you get the option to get the last extended to accommodate a high arch? I had a pair of Hayes (TG73) done 18 months ago on MTO and requested the last to be modified. They definitely fit better (lace closing) than the my other pair of G&G (St James II MH71)
