The funny thing is that they don't even come in Cordovan. Most of my other boots are in Cordovan.

I gather EG isn't really big on cordovan in general -only offered on a few models.  I have a handful of cordovan shoes but haven't yet added a Cordovan boot.  A few different ones are calling to me right now, though.

They have a few. I did happen to get a pair of Cordovan Sandringhams. So which Cordovan boots are calling Roger?

^^^ Carmina 80092 in all cognac shell or cognac shell with suede shaft.  And a butt-kicking pair of Buday.

Great choices. I recently received my first and only pair so far of Carmina Cordovan boots in Cognac Cordovan and I was really happy with my Jumpers. I've seen the shell and suede postings from unipair and those are simply amazing. I also wish to see some more offerings from Buday as well.

 

Good luck with your choice, or shall I say choices.

 

 

Cheers,

 

Dan

Cheers my friend.  Of course there's also a gorgeous pair of EG captoe oxfords in slate at my local Brooks Brothers - but their prices are wack.  As ever, more choices than dollars. :)

You can say that again. I think I add about 3 more shoes or boots to my list every time I purchase another one. LOL

+1!! Working on my first pair, now, and I have a feeling it will be downhill from there. Looks like my boot budget is going to start going half as far as it used to.

I'd rather have one fabulous boot that I really want than two or more which aren't as nice as the one I really want.

 

 

However in this case I guess I'd rather have 3 than 6 more.

I agree with this. I do love all of my Alden shell boots, though. These Galways are just calling out to me.

I pretty much started with a couple of Alden Shells myself, but after that all h*ll broke loose. Crockett and Jones Shell, Rider Shell, Alfred Sargent Shell, Carmina Shell, and a St Crispins Shell boot. However the Galway was something I had always wanted, and I got that fairly soon after just a couple of boots.

That's where I'm at. I need (want) a brown boot. I'd prefer shell, but not happening with Alden. I was thinking of going with one of the C&J shell models. The Harlech or the Skye2. Then I started thinking about the Galway. I could get both C&J models for the Galway cost of admission, basically. Goes the Galway = (2) shell C&J boots?

I have the C&J Cordovan Lindrick for RL. C&J makes an extremely well constructed boot and it's definitely in a different league than Alden. Although the shell is dryer, the shaft of the boot is taller, the last is more attractive in my book, and it looks and feels like it's just in a different league. 

 

However the Galway was something that I wanted ever since I first saw it. It seemed like something I wanted to aspire to. The Galway is Iconic. Whether one boot is worth two others you want will ultimately be determined by your needs (needing one or two boots) and your desires to own this vs something else.

 

Bottom Line: Yes the Galway is more than worth any other two boots that Crockett and Jones makes.

Thanks for that reply, ddd. How about functionality? I wear most of my boots to work in a business casual setting with mostly wool trousers and sometimes chinos. I wear all my boots with denim. The Galway can pull off this double duty, right? Basically I need to be able to wear them casually or it isn't worth the investment to me. Any other Galway owners want to weigh in?
