Thanks Leaves, just wanted to be sure they were truly a darker brown, as my other pair are a light brown.

Hey guys, the GMTO I am proposing is gaining some traction pretty quickly. We are trying to decide on a sole. Is the Tomir sole just a regular leather sole with a Topy-like insert on top?

 

Here is the GMTO for reference:

The shoe will end up looking approximately like either of these, if anyone else is interested:

Many thanks to the Skoak folks (@Leaves and @Skoaktiebolaget) for the great service and fast delivery on these Galways. Brown Utah calf with mink suede uppers. 82E Last with Dainite soles.

I finally got a chance to take some photos. I was a little nervous on how these would turn out, but I'm very happy with the results! Now if Fall/Winter would just get here a little faster (plus, that would mean the Doak Nevis would be ready, too!).

Nicely done, I really like the Utah calf leathers.

Thanks. I particularly like the subtly of the antiquing on the toes that EG does with the Utah calf. Certainly it's not as pronounced as some of the calf leathers, but I think the subtly is a nice change of pace.

I love them! The subtlety of the Utah calf makes a huge difference.

I'm sure you could get quite a few people if you did the US

Is the Utah leather similar to the Russian reindeer calf in terms of texture and look?

Quick questions gents sale rep told me not to use saphire pomadier for Stcrispin & EG shoes it damages them or strip there natural color. Is this true or it would be safe to use it on them? I was little puzzled by it. So figured to ask, better be safe than be sorry.

Pommadier is more than safe as it is the cream based polish with lots of nutrients and pigments...

 

But rather NOT Renovateur.

 

Reno is very potent.  You can spike it 50/50 with Saphir Universal Cream Polish for a little better results.

 

Renovateur is very strong, containing enough agents to strip shoes of their delicate finishings.

Holy crap I just used saphir renovateur on new shoe to give them good conditioner and shines once. Till other polish & wax comes in

So when is the time to use it I was under impression you use renovateur to conditioner & during normal shine etc

Love those Galways, flimsychicken. Great idea to use Utah on the uppers.
