Are you particular to those shoes in the picture or are you interested in Rosewood CC color? I have been trying to organize GMTO for Alderley boot in Rosewood CC but I might consider shoes in that color too; maybe Falkirk?

Thinking about going the MTO route for my first pair of EGs - probably either Galways or Shannons. Due to bad weather in the NE, I prefer rubber-soled boots, though I wouldn't be wearing these in the worst conditions by any means. Thoughts on whether 82 last boots would look strange/off with ridgeway (for Galway) or double Dainite soles (for Shannon). I know ridgeway on 64 last is common and most would do single Dainite for 82 last. Thanks.

I recommend choosing a last based on fit; the 82 can be a bit tricky.  My thought on soles is: under the right (or normal) circumstances no one really sees them. So if the boots are needed for New England weather, select a sole that makes sense.

It's unlikely I would be interested in ordering any time soon, but I find the Falkirk a very desirable shoe I have wanted for a while. What colors are in the mix?

I just think the Dainite is more appropriate with the slimmer 82 last. I don't have any but it seems to me that the double Dainite soles might be a bit more noticeable than I would prefer they be. I certainly wouldn't want to pair a thick rubber sole with the Shannon.

I am not interested in ordering anytime soon either shog[1].gif but I am thinking about Almond CC, Rosewood CC or Chestnut. Do you have anything on the wish list?

This would be well into the future. I don't need any more shoes, really.  For a Falkirk I have always liked Almond Country Calf, or maybe a Willow Calf version. Regular Edwardian, Burnt Pine, or even Chestnut could be nice (heavily burnished of course), but I am not sure how much wear they would get.  I like the Falkirk with and without the thistle side design as well:

I believe the only way to achieve that Falkirk model presently would be a special MTO.  Otherwise, Edward Green offers something similar as a stock model: the Longmoor, which is essentially a Malvern with eyelets on the 202.  The Longmoor comes in almond country calf or black cordovan.

Guys, I promise it's the last time I ask (for this season at least). Would anyone want to join a GMTO of:

 

- Alderley in Edwardian

- HAF soles

- Natural colour sole edges

- Regular welt

- Last 202 (only option) 

 

I guess it's last call if we want to get some wear out of them during fall, but my participation in the zug-adventure has made me promise (myself) that I'll only put down an order if we can make it as GMTO :embar:

 

Cheers,

SKM

I wasn't thinking of a GMTO, but I am a sucker for crowd pleasing. happy.gif I think Rosewood CC would look awesome on a rugged style Derby. Like @Farhad19620's Monmouth:


I'd love to see a few pictures of these in natural light and after a few wears.

I don't think this model would look so good with a storm welt though. I'm not overly fond of storm welts, they make my UK 11.5 feet look huge.

I can also go for that Plymouth exactly like it is.
