They are on the 888B, most wear the E last some D, but B? Got to have pretty narrow feet to pull these of imho.
Indeed your Galways have HA/F soles. One of the reasons for HA/F soles is indeed to make the shoe look more elegant, the waist of the shoe is sometimes bevelled which also contributes to an overall more elegant look of the shoe. I am not sure if the HA/F sole provide more comfort compared to full leather double soles, maybe someone that has both can chime in. I have a pair of Galways on HA/F and multiple other models on single soles, the only difference I notice when...
HA/F soles are soles that have the thickness of double leather soles at the forefoot section of the sole, which then tappers to single sole thickness at the (arch) midsection of the sole. See the following example.
I was in Paris this weekend and wore my Galways (82 - Dark Oak + Country Calf - Dainite double sole) two days straight. I took the subway a couple of times a day. I noticed about 4 girls on different occasions that were eyeballing my boots of which one girl in her early twenties was just gazing at them for about 5 minutes straight (until I reached my destination and hopped off).

Price reduced from 750US$ to 625US$
I'll have to pass on the Malvern on the 888 for now as I already own too many shoes that are quite similar: Inverness, Harrogate and the Asquith. Thanks for the offer though.
Wow, first time I have seen the Malvern on the 888. Having owned the Inverness for some time, I think that these are a step up from the Inverness. I think that real broguing of the Malvern looks allot better than the faux broguing of the Inverness.
