Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1628

post #24406 of 29009

I got myself an EG Galway in brown utah calf a few weeks back. Love it. I'm addicted to EG now.

I was on the fence for shearling Galways and decided not to buy.

Long story short. I owned a pair and decide to sell them. It wasn't just because they were shearling lined but I did determine shearling Galways weren't for me.

Supposedly the shearling doesn't get to warm when wearing inside, or at least that's what I've heard. But I don't tend to be outside in the cold that much in the first place as I tend to come in from the cold as much as possible. Shearling might look great when new, but I imagine it doesn't wear that well.

Make sense was just wondering the shearling I have is good for being two year old.

Well to be honest I don't have any actual experience with it. But the fact that I really don't need it is probably the biggest reason I have no desire to get it. The only reason I got that pair was because the opening bid on eBay was so low. I had no idea that no one else was going to bid and I would win them on just the opening bid alone. When I got them I decided to sell them mainly because they were so close to my other pair in Zug.

Shearling wears fine; it will wear at virtually the same rate as high quality leather when the shearling is of high quality as well. I admire shearling Galways.

I have considered buying a shearling pair. I think I would want it to be Utah calf and/or country calf with shearling. Any Galway in addition to Zug seems superfluous on a certain level in my book. However, there are so many excellent styles of both Galways and Edward Greens.

Nice looking boot, Congrats!!

Thanks! Oh I'm already on it. I couldn't resist and ordered another pair with a shearling lining. It'll be perfect for the winter here.

A pair... or two right? Because I ended up ordering another pair in walnut country calf and mink suede with a shearling lining.

Way too go, the more the merrier when it comes to Galways.

Same size but I find 888 a pinch too tight at the end of the day, prefer 202
