The Galway country boot on EG's dressiest last, the 888, is a contradiction IMO.

My question was a straightford "yes it is possible" or "no it is not possible".

I find double leather soles more comfortable on uneven ground (e.g., asphalt) as I feel rocks and bumps more with single leather. From my experience (I used to walk around 5 miles a day for almost 10 years in NYC), both soles eventually wear, controlling for thickness of the outsole. I only find wet leather soles slippery on marble, and honestly, I've almost fallen even with my Dainite. For me, it depends on how fast I'm walking when it's wet. Snow/ice is bad regardless of sole (okay, commando soles make a difference).

Oh, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding -- just trying to be helpful, asshole.

Ok. I personally also prefer the 202 to the 64, so I am all with you there. And how come you choose the 202 for the second boot, and not the 82 as on the first? Was it because you wanted something less sleek and dressy than the 82?

Below are the Galway boots I have on four different last's which may be helpful

From the left to right and from top to bottom.

1, on the 64E last , true to size and the most comfortable with normal socks
2, on the 202 E last, true to size and comfortable.
3, on the 82E last , looks the best but not the most comfortable boots! I had to go for a half size up.
4, on the 64F last , comfortable but with thick winter socks, I wear them with Falke 2 socks.
5, I am looking to add another pair soon! LOL


hope this helps in making your decision on which last to go for.

Great looking collection. Thanks for posting

I would have thought that the dark oak boot was 82 and not 202

I think it might be though because if you go by top to bottom than it follows the number system to be on 82. I think the top pic should be right to left abd not left to right

Same here, are you sure Dark Oak Boot is 202 last? It is too pointy.

edit: I think you are right @rydenfan

Can't believe these have been sitting in their box until today.

This makes a lot more sense.

Galway #1
Skoaktiebolaget stocked model of DOAK and Walnut CC
Only change is I went F width as I was slightly concerned about the narrowness of the 82

Galway #2 (MTO)
202 Last
Edwardian and Almond CC
Storm Welt with Natural Edge Trim
Double Leather Sole

They are Yin & Yang Galways icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Dark and light, yet complimentary


The second one sounds very interesting, I can't wait to see your pictures once you get it.
