Any guesses?  And I'm wondering how a walnut country calf would look against it?

Sweet!

Further to the recent discussion of Edwardian vs. Burnt Pine, these are a pair of Edwardian Antique Galways I proxied for an SF'er from the last pop-up sale. I really like the natural sole edge, perhaps a preview of what the proposed Cognac Cordovan Galway might look like?

Just got an e-mail from Edward Green. They cannot make up the Galway in Cordovan. baldy[1].gif

Did they specify what prevents this?

That stinks, but that kind of explains why we haven't seen one to this point.

I wonder if it was for the reason Namor pointed out a couple of days ago. The faux toe cap.

I remember Carmina, not being able to make a Jodhpur boot in cordovan for construction reasons. Maybe a similar situation?

It certainly was a great idea, thanks for checking Leaves.

Bummer. Thanks for checking it out for us Patrik - it was a nice dream while it lasted. :-)

I'll echo the others and say thank you Leaves for trying.

In this case, I'm either going for one of your standard Galway models such as Dark Oak/Walnut CC on dainite or maybe Galway in Edwardian nod[1].gif

I suppose it is just the lighting, but this is considerably darker than the burnt pine I have seen.

Awesome boots! :slayer:Confirms my idea that natural sole edge will be great for my Alderley in edwardian antique GMTO-project (though unfortunately less GMTO than MTO at the moment)...

I typically have an aversion to light-colored boots. I associate boots with colder weather and climate, and consider darker boots more appropriate for the heavier trousers, match my wardrobe better, and is allso easier to maintain darker shoe

With that said those boots are awesome I want
