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

If you can make it all-weather adapted by adding storm welt & using ridgeway sole, I will join this rosewood CC GMTO

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.

Dainite or leather for 82 Galway (I have both)
leather for 82 Shannon

You could consider the R1 rubber sole which is as thin as leather and supple and light, but hard wearing and appropriate for wet weather.
It is the EG equivalent of the GG wensum.
I have handled both and feel they are quite perfect for nicer shoes which can meet wet conditions
