Oak calf/ brown grain would be a great combo.

Indeed it would - my only concern is that we did an Edward Green Galway in similar combo and I don't want participants of that run to feel this version is too close to that... I'm going to ask a few of the guys who participated their opinion. The patterns of the EG Galway and CS Field Boot are different but still...

4 eyelets + 4 speed hooks, same material as the stock field boot

Indeed it would - my only concern is that we did a very similar Edward Green Galway in a very similar combo and I don't want participants of that run to feel this version is too close to that... I'm going to ask a few of the guys who participated their opinion. The patterns of the EG Galway and CS Field Boot are different but still...

Haha, I thought the whole point of the CS Field boot is to be a more cost effective Galway achieving similar looks.mwink[1].gif

Now that's customer service!

Oak doesn't look like the one and only doak, it looks like much more of a flat colour from the swatch.

EG is getting ridiculously overpriced now anyway.

I was a part of that EG Galway order twice shog[1].gif and I see no problem at all with this Carlos Santos makeup. I also was part of meermin "galway" albeit my was all country calf.

Honestly I think you guys should go for it.
post #23077 of 23725

IMO, different products (makers) should stand on their own merit. If you have a superior product, why worry about someone copying your design? There are half a dozen makers with similar boot designs and I honestly have no idea who was the first who came out with that design. However, we refer to most of them xxxx-way in homage to the Galway.

 

The phrase "Often duplicated, never imitated" comes to mind.  

post #23078 of 23725
Well, I wouldn't call it homage. Just a matter of convenience in reference to a particular design.
Many makers around that are considerably better than EG, and that design too.

Crap, you guys are making it really hard to hold out for my grail Galway. This will be a hell of a boot at a margin of the cost. Are you guys doing a burnished toe and heel counter possibly?

 

 

I would really love to see some in the wild pics of the field boot, maybe top down pics as well. Some more pics of the shape of the last would help me decide if I should really be jumping in 2 preorders lol.

I'm in and think a burnished heel and toe counter would look nice. But will defer to @Turbal
post #23082 of 23725

I agree but I don't know if it is possible.

Let's wait for @Leaves to answer that, if he agrees to go for this GMTO !

post #23083 of 23725

That Oak calf is begging to be burnished...

Agreed, would like to see some additional pics of the boot from members. I think the regular version was out last week so we should be seeing some soon, hopefully.

post #23085 of 23725

@Leaves, can we get a pic in that same light of the Brown Grain/ Mink Suede combo. The brown grain color looks amazing in those last pics you posted so would love to just have a better pic for us first boot crew lol
