Thanks for the visual.  I was confused by "double Dainite" as I was relating the double to an extra layer of rubber vs. a thicker leather midsole.  I am wiser now.

Thanks for the clarification, Leaves.

Thanks, guys.

 

d*3, it's funny but I was thinking of that already.  But I realize I'm going to have to take some time to digest these Galways and form some opinions about them after some wear before I make any decisions in that regard.

 

Ryden, your feedback is important to me because we both feel the Viberg 2030 last is a good fit for our feet.  So, are you saying that you prefer the 64 last to the 202 or the 82?  From pictures of various Galways, I can see that the 64 is on one end of the spectrum with the 82 on the other end, with the 202 in the middle.

 

Are the heels about the same width on all three lasts?  I guess I'm also interested in what the heel counters are like on the 202 and 82.  As I mentioned earlier, I find the 64 last heel counters lower (don't come up very high to cup the heel) than any other boots I own.  Are the 202 and 82 the same?  I might be concerned over nothing as these 64s might settle in as you say.

Galways are outstanding!

Yes, for me 64 last fits tighter than other EG lasts. I know it's counterintuitive because it's supposed to be the biggest. But the heel is better for sure. I find EG heel on 202 pretty big actually in both boots and shoes. Perhaps it has to do with Veldt construction, dunno

Thanks. USPS for me. Was 7 days door to door this time. I thought the brass was a nice compliment to GG06 last. You will love the leather! Really soft in person with amazing texture

Well done @rydenfan

I must say these are really excellent shoes, having not handled anything even remotely close to how beautiful these things are. Thanks once again to the great folks at SkoaB, and Gabriel in particular. 

There is a problem though, I can't bear to wear them.

 

 

Beautiful!

Some GG Arran's arrived early, thanks for the great service Skoaktiebolaget:




I can't wait for my DG70 Arran MTO, I can take some last comparison pics then. The GG06 will join at the end of the year to complete my Arran collection, my own personal One Shoe... icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Awesome I like the idea of collecting many different iterations of the one shoe design.

Freudian slip?  I'm not a chukka guy but those appeal to me on a whole other level.  Those are works of art.

LOL. Stupid phone.

Since we're talking GG, what do you guys think of this fit? Just got those. They seem to be a bit tight up top since I have a medium to high insteep. So I can't really close them fully now.

Keep them? Or I need an wider shoe?
