Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1593

Can't argue with that. I have a small collection though, so it would probably be too close to a galway in the same color. I'd wear them the same.

Yeah, the BB version is off somehow and it not just the chiseled Last.

It would although GMTO participation doesn't seem to be anywhere near what it used too be.​

Hi. Looking for some help. I bought a pair of Audley size 7 / 7.5, chestnut antique on an E82 Last. I love everything about these boots - however, I have only worn them about 5 times due to the severe pain I get around the back of the heel. 

 

I was only recently able to take them to EG in London to get their opinion on how I can soften the leather at the heel area and to their credit they took them and tried to do what they could AND sent them back to me at no charge. (Excellent service all round considering I had purchased them about 4 years ago!).

 

However... they are still causing the pain :( I really do not want to sell them and if there is any advice on how to soften the leather further or otherwise alleviate this problem I would be grateful.

 

EG's believed the leather needed softening, as the Galway V 7 / 7.5 E82 Black Calf / Black suede I bought at the same time are much softer in this area and are the greatest boots I've ever worn. Thanks

2.should i use back 4 or Saphir renovator on them?

 

i will ask Mr. Sid's to send me polish, and I will try for a mirror shine.

My local Brooks has a Doak EG chukka in stock and it's just gorgeous.

My calf St. C. Chukkas see a lot of wear, from jacket and tie down to moleskin and chinos. Tremendously versatile shoes for anything short of formal business wear. Heck, even my Vass museum green chukkas which I figured to be a very niche pair have seen a lot of wear.

To post a picture you can either use a picture hosting site such as photo bucket or you can click on the picture icon (the mountain and sun) and then attach the image file.

With regards to conditioner some will use this and others will use that. I used to use Saphir, but now use Bick4. Saphir is a conditioner slash cleaner and as such I find it a bit harsher than what I would like. It does tend to remove some finishing when using. I do find Bick4 tends to help with water spots real well and it works for me.

Has anyone compared the Utah and Country Calf directly on the foot? I was thinking of getting a black Oxford that could stand up better than most to rain/slush and flannel/tweed, and thought that a Carnegie with a grain and thin rubber sole might work well. There is an "English grain" at G&G that might fit the assignment, but I'm not sure that they do plain-toed Oxfords MTO.

Roger is it the chiseled lasted one? I much prefer a rounder toe on the chukka. My problem is that I have 3 pairs of Vass and all 3 fit differently and they are all on the same last. Ive only got one pair of StC so I want to wear them around before I go for a second pair

I have two galways. One on the country grain and another on the utah, so not sure how it translates into oxfords. Utah is much softer and supple. Appears more delicate. Country grain is thicker and more "rugged". Personally i would do utah on a shoe you are thinking of wearing on more dressy occasions. I was actually thinking of doing the Wells derby in a Utah leather

the green museum chukka you own how green is it look wise. Would you say similar to G&G racing green?

It was on a chiseled last of some kind. Not as aggressive as an Arran but along that path.

There are some pics earlier in this thread,but I'll post up when I get home later. It is much darker than GG racing green - almost green / black.

Thanks. The G&G English grain seems to offer the best of both these options, but this gives some food for thought on the EG side.
