This makes much more sense. This is indeed built like some modern galoshes, with a rubber lower part with cloth (or other material) ankling

It doesn't appear from this Lobb use of the term anyway, as though "golosh" is a synonym for balmoral as RJman's post would suggest, and I wonder whether the shoe in question could really be described by this term. Perhaps so, since it has a fairly distinct upper-quarters section.

They're size 44 so UK 10. They also look fairly old, and thus a bit overpriced, though they are quite nice.

I don't think you are seeing the difference clearly. These have a continuous surround upper, typical bals don't. Normal bals have a separate heel counter or no heel counter, and the toe vamp also ends in the midfoot or even shorter.

Not sure what difference I'm not seeing clearly, but I do understand that JLobb--at least--label shoes with such an upper part "goloshes" (although it's somewhat unclear as to whether that term applies to the shoe style or to the separate upper part). Here's the shoe that started this discussion:



Would you label this a "golosh"? And keep in mind that the terms "balmoral" and "golosh" are not mutually exclusive.

Yes, because the middle layer of leather, above the "wing" and below the facings (or vice-versa, depending on one's point of view) wraps around the whole shoe, like a galosh.

Here's another pic of the shoe showing the side clearly

Or are they? Peals, that is. Seller claims they're made by Peal, but, from the label, one might assume that the brand is actually Lotus. Or could that be a model name of Peal's? Perhaps they are pre-Brooks Bros. Peals branded with the Lotus name, possibly for this seller in Bermuda. Nonetheless, they seem like good-quality shoes from the pictures, and if the price stays somewhat low, they could be a good deal. If interested, contact the seller for more info:

I saw this and thought it was another instance of keyword spamming, like one of the German sellers who insists that Edward Green makes the RL and Poulsen Skone shoes he is selling.

I would ask the seller. Except I'm certain that I would get a bad faith answer from him/her to the effect that of course they are made by Peal, even though Peal's name is nowhere on the shoe, and even though I have yet to see a Peal RTW shoe that was not made by someone else for Peal, so that it makes no sense for a shop (Trimingham's) to stock a shoe with one brand name (Lotus) made by someone else under yet a third, unmentioned name (Peal). Thus, I greatly doubt they're Peal and hope that no one buys them assuming they are Peal.

I am not familiar with Lotus as a brand or as a model name. However, there have been lots of British shoemakers which disappeared over the years. Trimingham's itself is out of business, AFAIK, but it was apparently a shop selling classic luxury clothing, so perhaps the shoes are good quality. The waist seems relatively fine for a RTW shoe.

Interesting vintage Cole Haans, although they look like my grandmother's walking shoes.
