Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1711

Let's get some shoe pics worked back into this discussion. How about some Galways?

post #25652 of 29614
I have never owned a quality shoe in shell but have been hanging around on SF for the last couple of years. My observations from following a couple of shoe topics is that shell is more suited for rugged style shoes and that calf is better suited for elegant shoes mainly because of the way shell creases. The recent offerings of the Galway in shell look very dressy to me, especially due to the color and the choice of a sole (leather). Isn’t they style of the boot somewhat incompatible with the choice of hide?

I have never seen an E.G. shoe in shell after it has been worn a few times, but if it develops the typical lumps and streaks across the vamp that is typical for shell shoes from other brands, then I cannot understand why anyone would want to pay such a huge premium for them.

Thanks gents!  I never owned a chelsea boot until recently, but I fell in love with the hazel antique Newmarkets from @RogerP's photos.  Wore them all weekend actually :)

Well... I might not agree on wearing them for more than a day straight but I have to say that my Newmarkets are one of my favorites.... and it can't just be me because they seem to draw compliments from even the normal street crowd (versus sartorialists). As in your case they were my first chelsea boots...and they remain my only

 

I like your Berkleys a bit more than my EG "chelsea" cap-toes (name not boot style) ...but beggars can't be choosers...Perhpas next time around...

NP!  I will say they fit me well, snug but not too tight.  I think @RogerP mentioned he has a high instep so the Newmarkets weren't a good fit for him.
