    Now that I look at the Galway, I don't think it's possible to construct the boot as is with shell. The calf Galway lowers is made from a single piece of calfskin with a faux stitch captoe. Im not sure EG can recreate this with shell

    Good point, I guess we'll know for sure next week.


    I've got my fingers, toes, and eye's crossed until then. LOL

    Just poking fun of perfection. Trying to decide between CC and suede...I know either one would work well.

    Good point with the wholecut uppers. I'm still working on a Doak pair!

    There's no bad choice. I have country calf on my current pair and will likely do suede on the next pair just for variety.

    No, did he SAY Galways?[​IMG]


    For me my first choice was real easy, CC.


    This made my second choice even easier, suede.


    So, I'd just advise you to go ahead and get both.[​IMG]

    Where a little style goes a long way
    Question for all you avid EGers. I was able to try on the Galways. In short, it is on top of my must have list.

    I tried on my US shoe size (half size down UK) on E width in the 82 last Galway and it is a very good fit. I have a slightly wide forefoot and that was not an issue. Length is right and lines up at the ball.

    I was wondering if EG boots fit any different than shoes?
    Do people usually take the same size in the 82 last and 888 last?

    I found my Galway fits half size bigger than on my oxfords on the same size and last, not sure if EG makes the boots biggers so you can wear thicker sox or the nature of the derby closing.

    My Shannons on the 82 seems a 'little' bigger than my shoes on the 82... probably not enough to size down on the boot though.

    ^ same experience on the 82 last. My 82 lasted Galway boots are larger than the same size in my 82 lasted shoes, but not significant enough as to warrant sizing down. Rather, I wear thicker socks w/ my boots, so works well.
