I don't have a pair of Shannons, but I do have a pair of captoe balmoral boots. They have a chestnut calf bottom and a chocolate brown suede shaft.

I wear them to work quite a bit, particularly in winter, usually with a suit. No-one, and I mean no-one, at work has even noticed that I am wearing a pair of boots.

I know that these things are subjective, but I think that dark oak is far more versatile than slate. When you wear a pair of dark oak balmoral boots with trousers, most people will just think that they are brown shoes. When you wear slate boots, people will look at them as the colour is quite different and eye-catching.

Curious as to how the Galway vs. Shannon comparison started since they have separate purposes. Once I'm ready to retire my Islays I'll probably pick up some Galways.

cwh: those refurbs are amazing. I know you do pay much more for their services compared to other makers but for me, the treatment they provide to the uppers is second to none!

I tried on a pair of the islay and Skye 2 last week but once you are used to a pair of Edward green boots it is a completely different feeling. I would have bought the The Skye 2 but I could just not get the correct fit for me, the islay was a bit better.

EG fits me better but when it comes to country boots (that I walk in puddles and salted snow), I prefer to use my Islays (in addition to my Tricker's & AS). I prefer balmorals with work gear and wouldn't really wear Galways in suits or with trousers (even if I agree they are handsome enough to be pulled off with them).

Once the Islays wear down then it should open up a slot for the Galways. smile.gif

Since I have a pair of Islays I would be hard pressed to wish that they wear out prematurely, however may the shoe god make sure you see the light and get a pair of Galways soon.cheers.gif

My first pair of Edward Green, I'm very satisfied with this.

I just can't forsee myself using the Galways walking around ankle deep salted snow... Once I get them they'll probably end up like dressy boots instead of foul weather boots.

Nice Oundle; dark oak or burnt pine?
post #4304 of 10630
Great 1st pair. More to come, I am sure.
post #4305 of 10630

Thank you, it's burnt pine.
