    It's the EG 'Plymouth' on the 202 last with HAF-soles and sunken metal toe-tips. MTO through a shoe store in the Netherlands.

    Patrik,

    If you can make it all-weather adapted by adding storm welt & using ridgeway sole, I will join this rosewood CC GMTO

    Are you particular to those shoes in the picture or are you interested in Rosewood CC color? I have been trying to organize GMTO for Alderley boot in Rosewood CC but I might consider shoes in that color too; maybe Falkirk?

    Thinking about going the MTO route for my first pair of EGs - probably either Galways or Shannons. Due to bad weather in the NE, I prefer rubber-soled boots, though I wouldn't be wearing these in the worst conditions by any means. Thoughts on whether 82 last boots would look strange/off with ridgeway (for Galway) or double Dainite soles (for Shannon). I know ridgeway on 64 last is common and most would do single Dainite for 82 last. Thanks.

    I recommend choosing a last based on fit; the 82 can be a bit tricky. My thought on soles is: under the right (or normal) circumstances no one really sees them. So if the boots are needed for New England weather, select a sole that makes sense.


    It's unlikely I would be interested in ordering any time soon, but I find the Falkirk a very desirable shoe I have wanted for a while. What colors are in the mix?

    I just think the Dainite is more appropriate with the slimmer 82 last. I don't have any but it seems to me that the double Dainite soles might be a bit more noticeable than I would prefer they be. I certainly wouldn't want to pair a thick rubber sole with the Shannon.

    I am not interested in ordering anytime soon either :embar: but I am thinking about Almond CC, Rosewood CC or Chestnut. Do you have anything on the wish list?

    This would be well into the future. I don't need any more shoes, really. For a Falkirk I have always liked Almond Country Calf, or maybe a Willow Calf version. Regular Edwardian, Burnt Pine, or even Chestnut could be nice (heavily burnished of course), but I am not sure how much wear they would get. I like the Falkirk with and without the thistle side design as well:

    I believe the only way to achieve that Falkirk model presently would be a special MTO. Otherwise, Edward Green offers something similar as a stock model: the Longmoor, which is essentially a Malvern with eyelets on the 202. The Longmoor comes in almond country calf or black cordovan.
