I'm getting cravings for a pair in olive. Unipair guy's pics blew me away.
You're a brave man. I use Sno-Seal on my Islays during winter to deal with the salt. Wax polish is not enough (at least for me) when I'm walking 2 to 3 miles in ankle deep snow...

Salt = patina nest.gif (and thorough use of a damp cloth when I get to work/home)

I can truly say that I love Galway boots and EG are one of the best shoe makers in the world!

I used Obenauf's last winter but am going to give Chelsea Leather Food a crack of the whip this time round as I fancied something that sounded a bit more English!

Farhad, stunning boots as always.

These are perfect. Do you have an 8/8.5D on sale?

lol8[1].gif been reading the leather quality thread? Snow in NYC is rough. The streets are very salted, the dirt and grime mix with the snow, and it turns into a puddled mess the next day. I will wear my Islays the first day but when it gets really bad, my AS Fordhams are built like tanks. Galways would be nice transition (more dressy) boots but I have a number of balmoral boots that fit that role well.

Maybe ddd will buy me a pair to sway me. thumbs-up.gif

The Malvern III designs are great!

I was in nyc this past Christmas, had to wear sneakers. I just can't bring myself to wear the good stuff in inclement weather. All though perhaps if I lived there, I would have a much larger rotation and thus be more willing to take chances.

Well I do have another pair on MTO now, but darn those probably are in my size and not your size.boxing[1].gif

 

 

 

 

How about I just try working a bit harder to convince you to buy your own?deadhorse-a.gif

I wear my Edward Greens to work every day in Manhattan. I carry a pair of Swims galoshes in my briefcase all the time and they make a big difference in rain or snow (up to about two inches). Not only does it help preserve the uppers, but it prolongs the life of the soles. Soles wear the most when they are wet.

EG monkstrap on 808 last



Diehardworkwear wrote a great piece about single monkstraps featuring the EG mercer on the 82 last which has the "x" shape strap. I think I prefer the so beltlike horizontal strap across the vamp. However I doubt you could go wrong with either
