Thanks for the thoughts guys. I know not everyone likes the look of sleek lasts with jeans. If we're talking heavily washed denim, or loose fits, I'm in the same camp. But for slim fit dark denim I think it looks great and I wear my Galways (on the 82) with jeans all the time.

@coldinboston the Bordon looks great. It's on the 202?

I got it on the 202 last as i prefer that last in general but i believe you can get it on the 82 last.

I am planning to purchase my first eg shoes. I would like to know the differences between Delapre leather and crust leather? How they age with use etc?

Thanks in advance.

Delapre is still relatively new for EG for pictures of long term use/patina will be hard to acquirement the Delapre has more of a mathe finish and less burnishing than it'should crust counterpart. It also tends to be more supple than the crust, how this effects durability we shall see.

A quick Google search of delapre leather describes it as a fatty waxy leather. Probably best for adverse conditions. Leffot recently released a shearling lined rubber sole Nevis boot in Delapre, so it must be meant for bad weather.

Delapre has quickly become one of my favorite leathers due to its comfort. Compared to crust, it breaks in much more quickly and sort of molds to your feet. It is an informal leather, however, and depending on your profession, it might not be appropriate for most business suits. It also doesn't hold a polish the way crust does, so if that's your thing I would steer clear. So far Delapre has held up very well although it collects dust easily which can be a pain. It is very easy to care for and in fact doesn't need much aside from a brushing now and again.

EG now makes plenty of stock shoes using Delapre and Utah, it's textured cousin. Many of these are not specifically designed for bad weather so I don't think that was their intent. It does perform better than crust for this purpose however.

Incidentally, anyone know where to source Delapre?

Edit:  I mean utah, not delapre, on both models.

Thanks for the heads up. I have a galway in Edwardian and Utah gold and I swear it looks just like yours in pictures.
Pretty hard to differentiate for me wrt to chestnut if I'm not comparing them side by side...

I agree.  I can't really tell the difference myself.  It's probably a function of the normal variation in color on all EG shoes.

From what I read Delapre leather is comparable to horween chromexel leather chrome tanned and veg retanned.

It feels very similar with respect to comfort and break-in. It is not a "pull up" leather though, so it's less casual than CXL. The leather itself is also more refined and higher quality.

Thanks. From what I have seen from the photos it looks a bit like the Carmina vegano calf with a matte finish.

It's oily but nowhere close to cxl and just brushing does not remove scuffs. Also does not feel like carmina vegano ime.

Very comfy like jerrybrowne said though

Can anyone who has both compare the foul - weather performance of Delapre and crust? The latter seems fairly porous to me.
