He did say the older ones had just been refurbished, regardless as long as thee trees fit then it doesn't much matter. Besides EG no longer sells Lasted trees anyway.

I love all versions of the Galway boots, from left to right 64F , 82E, 202E and 64E with shearling

Tobacco works really well there. Great contrast and a great color.

Regarding trees, I've always considered shoe trees (lasted or not) from the manufacturer to be simply a luxurious touch to the purchase of the shoes or boots, assuming the generic trees fit decently of course.  I pretty much use generic Woodlore trees on my boots except for some special purchases, like my first Galways recently, where the addition of EG trees was just a special touch.

You maybe right, but with the exception of a pair of RL 89 Lasted EGs I use EG shoe trees in all of my EG shoes or boots. I could get a good fit with any of the EG shoe trees on that pair of 89 Lasted shoes.
