The Galway may be my single favourite boot design by anyone at any price.  As country boots go, it is very sleek and elegant.  But it's still no dress boot in my books.

This. Definitely sophisticated, but definitely a country boot.

I share the same logic and this is why I haven't purchased a pair of Galways. When it comes to country, I lean towards Tricker's, AS, and C&J (well, at least my pair of Islays).

One day thought I'm sure... I have a bad feeling my Islays are going to have a rought first winter here in MI...

It's only a country boot in the 64-lasted versions. The other ones are poncified modern takes on the original field boot, and hardly suited for even a stout walk in the country...

You are welcome to your view of course, but however poncified a particular Galway might be it isn't transformed into a  dress boot in my opinion.

dress boot =/= dressy boot

shannon (82 last) is a dress boot, galway (82 last, 64 last) is not
however both shannon (82) and galway (82) are dressy boots

i repeat this to myself whenever im in danger and need comforting reassurance

I agree, the ones on the 64 last are the only real field boots the rest are not fit for purpose IMHO! I have the Galway on the 64, 82 and 202 last all for different use and I love them all, you may have to look at Trickers if you want any other country boot.

"poncified" Now that's a word you don't often see used. I rather like it.

Please add, "Galway 202 is not."

Thank you.

Depending what trousers you are wearing the boots with, 95% of the time I wear chinos and only some days at the office I wear formal trousers but I still consider the Galway on the 202 last to be a bit formal. My take on this is that the Shannon boot is a more formal style boot and the Galway is the casual boot.
In my knowledge the Galway was originally made as a hunting boot ( if I am not wrong here) but I can not really go hunting with these!

Farhad - I refer you to the lucid observation by CTBrummie.

I wear mine with chinos and denim usually. I suppose in a pinch I'd wear them with flannels if dictated by the weather.
Definitely not a hunting or hiking boot in the configuration I have- the poncified strolling around town in wet weather model.

Earthdragon - you piece of shit are selling shoes that were generously proxied for you during the last EG factory sale. What the fuck is wrong with you? An SF'er went out of his way to find your requested boots, ships them to you at cost and without a proxy fee and you go out and sell them for profit. Go stuff your coffin full of money

If this is true, then it is very uncool...
