Love the look of Last 64.... a masculine. lets- go-out-and-get-fucked-up Last. Unlike the prissy Galway on 82. If I ever got a Galway, these would be it, sans shearling. Hell, I even love the medway sole.

It was snowing in London today luckily I had these on!

Finally saw a pair of Galways with the half-lined shafts... now I know why everyone wants them full-lined.

How do this last fit compare to other brands like G&G (GG06) and C&J (236 seams quite like)?

The 64 last is very comfortable and really looks very nice on , I do not own any C&J or G&G so cannot comment on the fit but all I know is that you cannot go wrong with a pair of Galway boots!

Why is that? On our MTO Galways through Leaves I requested a fully lined shaft and EG refused.

That's what I heard (EG declining to fully line the shaft) but initially I never really thought it a major issue until I went to Citi Shoes and saw their Galway on display. The shaft lining was just a leather strip on the top and although it kept that section sturdy, the ankle area looked like it needed more support. I understand without the lining it would make the boot more comfortable but I guess my preference is a boot with a full lining.

Hmmm, interesting. That makes sense. Hopefully they still look good whenever they arrive.

Not sure why they won't do it these days, but historically most veldtschoen boots are unlined in the leg, possibly because they've traditionally been built with thick, waxy leather and lining the boot leg would be overkill.

 

The original Galway was made of zug grain, which is one of the hardiest leathers you'll ever find. I've a pair of WW2 Lotus veldt boots made of zug that are still entirely fit for purpose and have been getting a lot of wear over the past few days! EG sometimes refer to it as 'heather gorse'.

 

C&J's Snowdon veldt boot also has an unlined leg. The only examples I can think of that have lined legs are Sargent's Selkirk (and Kelso variant) and Cheaney's Pennine boot, both of which are pretty bulletproof and couldn't even masquerade as a vaguely dressy boot..
