Got an Email from EG announcing a "workshop sale". On site in NH only of course. Anyone have any experience attending these? Any chance it would b worth a day & £150 in transport? I'd have to fly in from Geneve but if proces are hitting 50% it might be worth my while to fly in, hit the sale, & fly out again the same day...thoughts?

I did not attend the last few sales, but apparently the experience from my friend was rather frustrating, i.e very limited collection and the popular models were not included.

This time round it is a bit suspicious when they did not disclose the exact discount, used to be 65%

Thanks for the info....I emailed EG and this was their response....

 

 

"There shall be a varied selection of 11.5 and 12’s, the shoes are both factory seconds and last minute perfect stock customer cancellations, generally the factory shop prices are 45%-50% off retail, the factory shop sale has an additional up to 15% off selected lines."

 

Hard call...Might be some neat bargains...might be a complete waste of time and money...

I think best to visit them on a non sale day - you won't get that 15% discount, but the chance to find good stuff is much higher

Help Needed!!

Would a C width on an older pair of EGs on the 202 last be the equivalent of a US B or C width? I haven't worn a 202 in a while, but I believe it is wider in the toebox that other EG lasts?

Thank you, in advance, for your assistance.

Don't know if this can help.  It might have already been posted on SF somewhere.  I found it on another forum a while ago.

I agree. Interested in potential proxy.

So I made my first run at becoming a Galway owner and I am afraid my personal opinion was that I was not blown away. I ordered (from a retailer not frequently mentioned on here) a pair of the standard Rosewood CC on the 64 last and I just did not like it at all. Fit was poor compared to my Alderly on the 202 last and I really did not like the shape of the last in person (i had only seen pictures before). Not giving up on Galway but definitely need to try on a different last. Also, the right boot had more than one blemish which I found odd for E.G.

Based on your description its easy to see why you weren't blown away. It certainly helps to begin with if you know and actually desire what you are getting in the first place. The 64 Last is more of a real country boot Last. It's not the smart casual type boot one would get with the 82 or 202 Last. The fit on the 64 is a bit different as well but personally I didn't have any trouble taking the same size in the 64 as I do in the 82. Hopefully the next one will work for you if that's what you decide to do.
