They look very similar to the EG Carnegie shoe.

Does anyone know this Savoy shoe and if it was made by Edward Green?






They don't look like EG to me.  First, I don't see the signature nail pattern on the heel (unless it's been replaced), and the codes on the tongue don't look correct.  Typically they'd be in the "window" on the side of the shoe, and have an EG last number.  They continued this practice even on the shoes they made for Ralph Lauren.

Does anybody have some picture comparing the three lasts - cant seem to find any?


I don't, I have a picture comparing the 202, 606, 888, 82, 505, 184, 65, and 100.  Basically everything but what you're looking for.  Let me know if you'd like to see those.

 

Good luck and enjoy the Galways!!

Thanks.
Yes, I contacted Edward Green and had a response this morning, saying that they didn't make the shoes.

Must be made by Cheaney, although I don't recognise that last number.

No directly comparing the 3 lasts but you get the idea but gives you an idea
1st pic is 72 kentmere with 64 galway


2nd is 64 galways with 202 galway


All are fairly "work boot" lasts with the 202 being the most streamlined.
I dont have one comparing the 82 but overall that changes the boot a lot and makes it much dressier IMO.
I dont personally like the Galway on an 82 but there many who do and there pics of them on this thread and online
Hope this helps

IMO for grain and Utah the 72 >64
For smooth leathers the 82 or 202 based on preference

Do you size the same for 72, 64 and 202?How would you compare the fit. My only frame of reference is the 72 so far and trying to decided my size for the 64 and 202.
