The leather of the Hannover is softer; the Islay is a higher boot; the Hannover has a slightly chiseled toe; the Islay has a rounder fuller toe.
Hannover is on a commando while Islay is on Dainite.
Owned both and they have the same function for me. I kept my Hannover because of the commando sole and since I have numerous shoes/boots with Dainite.
For the Hannover, I take 1 full size down my US size (e.g., US 7 = Hannover UK 6F).
Hope this helps! Get them from AFPoS!
