Doesn't feel right to you or doesn't look right to you without that little bit of sock showing as with regular shoes? Any pics?

Hi,

 

Looking for size advice. My limited exposure with EG is on the 82 and 202 lasts. With D width and UK 9/US 9.5 size, 202 last cramps my toes whereas 82 fits perfectly. As a result, I have stuck with the 82 last. What should be my size on the 606 last? I ordered Dover from Axel on the 606 last in my size and width and they are big with considerable heel space. Should I try 8.5 UK/9 US or would they be too tight?

 

Thank you

Yeah, you're nuts.  But truthfully, there're a ton of guys out there that don't like boots.  It's just when you use the word "Galway" in a sentence like that, it just seems nuts, that's all.

I also had question about the rubber sole. You guys think its ok to wear the Chelsea with a rubber sole?  Thanks for your input! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have the Shanklin with the same sole and it's great. Very flexible and sleeker than my shoes in Dainite.

@Allen Dreadmon, I've heard similar discussions in the shoe care thread... honestly my subjective experience has been that the wax does help. I typically only use grain country boots so I don't mind the leather drying. Also, eventually the wax wears off so it's not like the shoe becomes permanently saturated. I find it easier to clean my boots that have been treated than those that have not. My AS Hannovers are my foul weather boots and they still look damn good after 3 or 4 winters.

The rubber sole is very slim, almost as thin as leather. I'm all for rubber soles, I prefer not slipping and falling for a week.

The Galway is a high boot? Man I wish someone had told me, I'll probably take mine off next time as well. Well maybe I'll take it off when I get back home that is. LOL

Yeah, we'll see. I know I won't have trouble selling them if I go that route.

It's higher than a chukka, so it's a high boot for me.

I like my Shanklin, Chelsea boots and all other chukka/Chelsea boots a lot. Higher than that, I just don't know. In the past few years, I probably put on my high boots less than ten times.

Maybe the weather was not cold enough for wearing boots? when I wear my boots and the weather is not really cold I take them off sometimes when I am indoors.
This weather so far has been quite mild here and I have not had many chances to wear my boots.
