Edward Green shell cordovan shoes (and those shell shoes produced by other English companies, such as Cleverley) do not hold primary appeal for me.  The deep burnished/ antiqued look and expert finish of calfskin for which EG is known is supreme. This deep visual interest and effect cannot be replicated in shell cordovan, which is typically rendered in a uniform shade. 

 

Shell cordovan shoes have their place, and I know the fanatical, and oft comical, Alden fans believe shell is unequaled. But for a city (dress) shoe meant for dry weather, calf is far better.

Nothing against the Alderly but this is why I have one Galway and two others on the way. Two on the 82 Last, but the third on the 64 Last.

Took delivery of these EG Claydon's in Hawthorne Suede.... I love the color of the suede, it has a redder look to than the tobacco suede... They're almost too nice to wear!

MoosicPa- 

 

Nice pickup. Is Hawthorne suede a relatively new color?

Hit them with a bit of Saphir Invulner, and subsequent cleaning will be a breeze. Cheers.

Congrats, wear them in good health.

Can anyone with Galways lined in shearling comment on where it's located? Is it in the shaft or the vamp (covering the foot and toes)?
post #6579 of 13171
MoosicPa, those Claydon's are spectacular. Where'd you pick them up?
post #6580 of 13171

MoosicPa, you take a great picture and those are beauties!

Thank you for the insight, hence I said IMHO I find them a bit, as CTBrummie would have said pnotcified! LOL. Nothing against the Auderley beautiful boots you are right, I think it would just needs to be beefed up a bit like the Islay from C&J if it were a true country boot.

The boot leg only is lined, mate.

In my book, a full brogue boot will always be a country style boot, although I agree I would not wear an Alderley while say hunting or fishing, but I would definitely wear a Galway for such purposes.
