So newb question here, but - with the Galway, is there a functional reason for the suede shaft section, or is there that a purely aesthetic choice? is suede preferable around the ankle as it make the boot lighter or more comfortable? or is it just stylistic?

With everything there are many opinions and I am sure there maybe some who prefer suede for many reasons. Personally I made it a thing to get at least three different make ups of this boot. I may actually opt for more later but there are so many different leathers, colors, and Lasts that one can get a Galway on. Personally I think it's one of the best designed and most versatile models of boots for that very reason.​

 

The first I opted for is the standard version, the one most retailers stock. The Dark Oak Calf and Walnut CC on the 82 Last.

 

The second was one with a suede shaft, and one that would match one of my watches which is another passion of mine. The Midnight Blue and Navy Suede Shaft on the 82 Last.

 

The third was a more country boot. The Veldschoen Zug on the 64 Last and Ridgeway sole.

 

I've seen many other versions to include an all suede version as well.

Sounds like 7E UK would be about right. In my experience.

I have little confidence in EG now. I surely regret not going with Lobb. EG will not get a cent from me ever again. Total waste of time and very poor QA.

Sorry to hear about your experience I am also a big fan of JL but make sure you go with Lobb St. James, NOT the Hermes owned JL Paris who are also good and shared the same factory with EG at one time but you can experience problems with any product from time to time.

Not to defend ourselves or other EG retailers, obviously we have a responsibility to check outgoing goods for defects, but there was a time when this was not needed for EG. Honestly, I get very disappointed whenever we get a pair that should not have passed the manufacturers quality control. From my point of view it's 100% the manufacturers responsibility. Often you see issues that were caused early in production and instead of just removing that pair and remake it, it goes all through the production line without anyone flagging it. This is the case with several makers we work with. But in the end, the worker that packs the finished pair should have some kind of check list to go by in order to catch any sub standard pairs. This should not take more than a few seconds extra per pair with some training. It would save everyone in the supply chain a lot of extra work and headaches. You have no idea how much work it is to return a product to the maker. We just introduced a new QC program at Skoaktiebolaget to avoid shipping out sub standard goods but if the manufacturers could step up a bit as well everyone would benefit from it.

So ddd, does the suede shaft feel comfortable? I have never tried this make up before.

Why would you advise against buying JLP?

I only have one pair of JLP (Riveria), but I think the quality of the suede is even better than the suede of my AS handgrade, EG, and GG. It is very soft and smooth. Though I am no expert in leather....

Sometimes it really doesn't take an expert. But then again your not the only one to make this point. Besides with JL's connection with Hermes (I think it is) they do have all the connections they need to get the better quality leathers.​

Yes, yes it is.

 

But then again I see them all as being very comfortable.

@Leaves great points and you have no arguments from me whatsoever. However I would say one of the main reasons I chose to go thru someone such as yourself and you guys have done a marvelous job as my product has always been outstanding. Is that I am looking for that added bit of protection so to speak that I will be receiving exactly what I expect and if on the off chance I have someone who will make sure if I happen to get something other than what I expect there to assist me and getting it corrected. But I certainly luv to hear that you have instituted further safe guards as I see this good for me as well as for you. 

 

 

Thanks again for your outstanding customer service.

I agree, but am wondering why @Farhad19620 is advising to avoid them... Maybe he knows something we don't?
