Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1684

Horweens Zug is respectable but not true to Heather Gorse / Zug as we know it and used on past models (eg: no Swiss chocolate byproduct leftovers added).

If I can find the samples of Horweens Zug, I'll post them here. Otherwise EG Paris has additional samples. Three colors were offered: black / oxblood / dark brown. I think ~2mm thickness.

Zug was the town in Switzerland where the leather was created and now, Zug is just the stamped pattern grain name btw originally known as "Martin's Grain" (no clue who Martin is/was).

There is some interesting history on the forum about the original leather (pg 427 on this thread)......aforementioned was from my memory.

Regardless of leather producer, should still make for a cool boot.

Is it spring yet? A quick cleaning of this duo. My first time using the Burgol Pomade, and it seems to put a nice gloss on the shoe with minimal work.

What are you guys using to treat your Galways for the snow?

I just spray them with saphir invulner when out of the box and then as I remember to after. I will also use bick 4 or saphir lotion at the beginning and end of winter. I only have galways on utah and CC, i am assuming the smooth leather ones may require more care for snow (if you choose to use them in the snow in the first place)..

Thanks Roger, and I shouldn't to keep up with your pairs. With the nice weather, ready to put the boots away.
