What is my opinions regarding lining color, welt, eylet color and how's fully lined compare to unlined?

Other tips with EG MTO?

Thanks!

And your new avatar is even more ridiculously mesmerizing than the last one.

Burgundy. Just a tad bit here and there. A good brushing usually brings the luster back up without gratuitous use of polish. Storing your shoes in their boxes on trees will help in this regard.

Thanks. Shoe trees and dust covers for me, but same idea.

It would probably be easier if you started off with an idea of what you wanted your shoes to look like in the end, and find the appropriate customization options that will get you there, rather than figure out what are you options and then design a boot from those possibilities.

Of course and i already know that but i´m missing the last details, like lining color.

The boot i´m buing is:

Galway
Dark Oak (including upper)
Last 82
Double dainite
Normal welt (is it called flat welt?)
Speedhooks (don´t know if there is any options here regarding size and color)
Open eylets (don´t know if it´s called that and don´t know the color options)
post #2409 of 9859
You mean blind eyelets (with no rings in them)?
IMO blind eyelets look great on formal (oxford) boots like the shannon but not so much on a derby boot like the galway.
I also don't like the combination of blind eyelets with speedhooks.

just my 2ct.

Besides blind, there's agatine and matched agatine. Agatine is just untreated brass (or, on rare occasions, painted some contrasting color). Matched agatine is when the metal is painted to a color that closely matches the leather.

All this talk about Shannon:

Come to think of it I do not think I have seen Shannons with blind eyelets (but I am sure you can MTO them that way).
