Another arrival from this week:
Cardiff in nutmeg suede on a 202D

11601462-7A48-4834-9FDC-8FDA0C75A0F2.jpg

I was pleasantly surprised by the D width of the 202 last. I have oxfords in E width and they fit great but the Dover and the ones above in brown Utah I found hem a bit wide. I can say now that I am D width on 202 last in derbies.
Maybe I will have to sell the derbies above in brown Utah which are 8.5/9 E 202.

Regarding the Cardiff itself is a great shoe with a very nice colour of suede and a single leather sole.

Thanks

Boots came out of the closet. Finally some boot friendly weather in So Cal

Are boots, specifically Galways, really that much hotter to wear than shoes? I haven't worn boots for years ( since my college Doc Marten days) and I live in sunny humid Florida.

It has been raining a lot here in The Netherlands. Just curious if you guys wear your leather soled E.G.'s when it is raining or if you have specific pairs for that purpose.

My first pair of E.G.'s were a pair of DOAK Chelsea's on single leather soles, I sort of ruined them by walking in the rain with them slightly too long (I got surprised by heavy rain while walking to my Hotel in Paris), the rain soaked the soles completely and the water absorbed through the soles up into the uppers and stained them pretty bad, so bad that multiple coats of polish can't conceal the stains completely. When I got home I immediately stuffed them with paper towels and turned them upside down, but the damage was done. Now if the shoes get slightly wet, the area that was stained saturates with moisture almost immediately, the stain darkens considerably and white streaks also start to show in the leather. I now only wear my Galways (on Dainite) if rain is to be expected.

Any suggestions when it comes to fowl weather and wearing your E.G.'s?
How well can suede shoes on rubber soles withstand pretty heavy rain? I have a pair of suede Shanklins on rubber soles, but don't dare to wear them in the rain.
Any suggestions for specific RTW fowl weather E.G.'s (with exception of Galways)?

I have my galaway boot with single leather sole 82 last reserved for dressy & business casual occasion & don't wear them if it's going to rain. I am planning on getting other galaway with dainite or rubber sole & using them for foul weather. Suede holds up very well as long as you spray them with nanno protector. But in Reality galaway shaft is covered by your pants. But honestly dainite or rubber sole Galway should be good for foul weather. But I also bought very dressy boots in vibram sole from Stcrispin which you can't see & they have done superb job & should come in very soon biggrin.gif

Thanks, just to clarify, sometimes it rains multiple days after another so I would like another pair of rubber soled shoes as an alternative to my Galways. My current Galways are DOAK/Country Calf and I am very happy with their performance in the rain.

Congrats with your StC, wear them well!

Thanks for the info. I have read that suede performs great if the rain, I was just a bit concerned because my Shanklins are pretty light (the uppers are in mole suede), I wasn't quite sure how the suede would handle dirty splashes of water when walking the streets in the rain.

Well with my suede I have sprayed them with nanno & walked in rain & snow & slush they held up very well. And if weather is going to super bad I reapply nanno after week or so. But other option would be getting rosewood calf EG shoes with dainite sole. They have those in RTW & looks like EG galaway but in shoes biggrin.gif

I only wear suede + rubber sole in the rain. Primarily because leather is too slippery on slick, wet concrete/tile. But I don't get much rain and I certainly am able to avoid splashing with muddy water.

Michaelvl what you should get is EG Dundee veldtschoen construction in rose wood country calf with dainite sole. That is what I was referring to above & you are all set biggrin.gif by the way it's also RTW
