Ummmm...of course it's necessary!!!

I feel better knowing that you got the wrong size! You don't think 1/2 size will make enough of a difference? I don't imagine wearing the same socks as I do with my Aldens with the Galways. What sock were you trying those with?

The boot looks great fwiw ryden. Live and learn the zugs will be fine believe me.

Need your help.

If I am normally Edward Green size 9.5/10 in Chelsea Oxfords.. Do you think I would be OK with the size 9/9.5 when it comes to a Galway on 64 last? I read somewhere here that their boots runs/feel a bit large compared to their shoes ..

I am not in a position to try them on first.

My go-to guy for all my fit questions wears the same size in all of EG's lasts. Shoes, boots, etc... I haven't been steered wrong as of yet, but everyone's feet are different. He may chime in here, soon. I imagine you'd be the same size.

Thank You guys .. I won't gamble than as seller doesn't accept returns and considering it's a boot I would be better to miss with a half size larger than smaller considering they are boots and that I could always wear a thicker sock in winter and fill the gap.

To those who get Skoak's rosewood Galway, please share how you size the 64 last.

@rydenfan --sorry but not at all surprised that BB botched the size.
Still thinking about a Rosewood Galway with no shearling, buda? Me too...

I think Rosewood CC looks fabulous. I probably would have gone for this had the Zugs not became available.

Yea...they will be my next Galway. Something I can wear daily in the fall/winter. A go-to boot.

Great choice.

 

With the Zugs I'll have 3 pairs of Galways.

 

I'm just not sure whether this last pair will be my last pair of Galways or not.

I plan to have "Passed on Zug Galways" written on my tombstone. What an idiot. Oh well.

"Not sure." That sounds like there will be more Galways to come.

Oh, it's definitely possible.

 

The fact that it's such a great looking boot and you can get it in so many different combinations  certainly keeps that door open.

I am not sure that 1/2 size would be enough of a difference. They were quite tight. I was wearing a medium weight dress sock (J Crew sock) there were not especially thick. I think that going up 1/2 size would certainly help but I am wondering if I also need to go out 1 width or possibly go up a full size and wear a thicker sock.

Damn. Sorry the experience has caused more confusion. If you were past the widest part of the shoe, I imagine they would feel quite tight as the toebox seems to taper quite quickly. Do you feel you were more than 1/2 size past the widest part of the shoe?
