What's the difference between Utah and normal hatch grain?

Utah grain seems to be softer.

These Galways are actually on Dainite.  I'm not sure what double Dainite really means.  All my boots that have Dainite soles have a leather midsole.  Does double Dainite mean an extra layer of rubber?  Or does it just mean the Dainite sole is extra thick?

Here is poor pic of double vs single. I think standard EG is double. I got the double on my alderleys but find it a bit too stiff so always specify single on orders now. It should break it and lessen heel slip though

, and Gabriel for assistance with sizing.  There's a bit more heel slip than I expected but I'm okay with that as they're still new and it's a boot, not a shoe.  But definitely more heel slip than my Vibergs or Aldens.  The heel counters on the Galways seem to be quite narrow, meaning they don't come up nearly as much as my Vibergs, or even my Aldens.

The Utah leather is unbelievable, the nicest leather of any of my boots.  I wasn't expecting them to be only partially lined but am happily surprised by this.  Being unlined in the quarters/shaft, it feels like butter even on the first wear.  I'll post more photos and further impressions when I get a chance to wear them properly.

Utah is a printed version of Delapre. They are both calf leathers treated with more oils in the tannery which makes them softer but also slightly harder to get a high shine on. Perfect for casual derbies and boots.

I echo Steven's sentiment. I too find double dainite soles inflexible.

Thanks, good to know. I have both and have always thought that even though they look very different, must be somehow related, but could not find any clear link online. Both are extreme soft.

If you order a Dainite sole from Edward Green you will by default get a "double Dainite" with a heavy midsole. If you want a slimmer option, consider the R1 sole or to clearly specify a "single Dainite", this is a Dainite with a thinner midsole.

@BootSpell they look amazing!!! Glad you are pleased with them. I find EG heel a bit wide but it does settle in and 64 is the best fit for me

Thanks. Yeah, the Doak/walnut cc on the 82 is a classic! Good choice.

Are those fully lined?
