Those are pretty cool.  Congrats.

is utah calf just as durable as country calf?  I'm wondering if utah Galways would be good for winter wear (I have some on the way, so I guess I'll find out) :)

Stop by Leffot. Steven can give you the best advice, I think.

Sorry i was thinking of UGG type lining where the whole boot is just fur on the inside. Then even more so, i just dont see the point. Just wear socks if its that cold. Also i cant remember the last time I was outside and thought my ankles or calf were cold. If its anything its usually toes. If you live in new york you can always stop by a retailer and give them a try.

Great idea! Just moved back from MI (was there for a couple of yeras) so I'm still reminding myself of all the shops here again.

I think the shearling is to prevent the cold coming in from the opening up the leg. However, the cold would permiate through the uppers anyway (I assume).

I should just admit it'll be a novelty item if I purchase a pair. Now, the Bauxite Sandringham on the otherhand...

I would agree that a shearling lined boot is probably just a novelty compared to an unlined boot.
A bauxite sandringham, or any sandringham, is necessary for any well dressed man. I will not try to convince you otherwise

Fav purchase of 2015, looking forward to more EG in 2016.

I recently had to sell my 82 last utah galways to another SF memember because of issues with the last, textured leather, and my personal style. It was a sad moment but now their replacement has arrived from Steve at GF. 72 last much more to my liking for casual boots.
Kentmere 72 last 8.5E.
Brown Utah
Ridgeway sole with storm welt.
These are some kicka $$ boots
Sorry for the lighting but natural light pics will not be available until April in Boston...

They look awesome. How does 72 last fit compared to other EG lasts? I have not had a chance to try it yet.

Comparison shot between 64 last rosewood galways and 72 last Kentmeres.
72 last is fairly roomy, more than 64.
The 64 last galways are F width, 72 kentmeres are E width

On initial impression walking around the apt roomier than 64, and 82 for sure. On par with 202 or maybe even more (hard to say bc i only have 202 shoes not boots, but roomier than 202 on shoes for sure). It almost has a 202 feel to it with a rounder toe and more space in the toe box (side to side, and up down, it is not elingated like 82 last)

I really like it for the boots. Probably my favorite EG cut for casual boots. I may look at 72 last casual shoes as well in the future , but it gets my thumbs up for boots.

That is really good news especially that there is more room up in the box. 64 last fits me but I would appreciate higher toe box. Thanks.

No doubt higher toe box than 64. Overall roomier and just more comfy from the beginning. Part of the comfort is also that the Utah leather is just so soft compared to the CC
