Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 322

post #4816 of 18369

Hi guys,

 

Just picked up these babies for a song on Ebay. I imagine they'll be pretty awesome once I'm having them refurbished.

I emailed EG and they confirmed that they were made by them. However, the refurbishment comes to an eyewatering 275 pounds (shipping both ways included, though, and I'm from Denmark) and a 8-10 week delivery time. Anyway, I'm thinking about having them resoled with Dainite, so I can use them for semi-elegant rainy day boots. By the same token I thought about getting rid of the stom welt and having them replaced by a regular welt, to add to the sleekness-factor (by looking more like the Alderlay) – do you think that's possible?

 

Cheers,

SKM

What would you want it for, a dress boot or a field boot? For the former, get one of the combos posted after your question. The latter, then go grain and 64 last.

Thanks tdude. Here is the bronze pair from Leathersoul I was talking about:

I think this one from LS is my favorite Galway make-up. I really like the Dark Oak a few posts above too.

Thanks for the comments on the Galway make-up, guys. Not sure you helped me decide though... wink.gif

On another note, I have been offered to buy suede and dark oak Galway subs for 500 GBP (and JL William Meleze buffalo subs for 430 GBP). Since I am not that used to buying subs and therefore am a bit unsure about what is a reasonable price for them, would you say that these are good prices? Or too high?

Cheers

These are very good prices for the shoes but you really need to know how much of a defect is on the shoe, sometimes it is only very small.

The seller says they are without "any visible flaw", so it seems to be all good. I will however of course inspect them thoroughly when they arrive, and return them if they don't seem to be up to par.

Inside the box of a sub shoe, EG will typically leave a note identifying reason for "subs". My pair of galways had once such note when picked them up at the factory. Issue was with "inner vamp stiching" however when the shoes were inspected, both my an EG employee and myself, no defect appeared visible.

Ok, good to know. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for your Galway subs and what make-up was it?

Yeah sure, No trouble. Pair cost me $5 million dollars and it was the 24k model with 15 carat chiseled diamond speed hooks. I love the way they look but boy are they a bitch to break in.

Edit - they were dainite, not double leather

A true fan would have gone for the triple tyrannosaur skin soles with palladium taps. Tsk tsk.

Hey guys,

Is $775 shipped a good price for EGs? First quality, not subs.
