***SOLD*** Edward Green Galway - Chestnut Utah Calf - 72 last - 11/11.5E - worn twice

***SOLD***
  • Make/Model: Edward Green Galway
  • Last: 72
  • Size: 11/11.5E
  • Leather: Chestnut Utah Calf (embossed hatch grain)
  • Sole: Dainite
  • Price: $775 not including PayPal fees, free shipping within USA (international at cost)
  • Wears/Condition: 2 wears, condition 9/10 (see notes)
  • Notes: (apologies for my **** ability to be concise) Full disclosure: I bought these from Superdenim during their summer sale for $841.38 + import/delivery fees and duties (total price came out to well over $900). I had long been looking to get a pair of Galways, so when I saw these, I didn't hesitate to pull the trigger. At that point, I had a rather poor understanding of my size in general, so this led me to order an incorrectly large size. When I got them, my Galway fever (the symptoms of which include impulse purchases and denial regarding sizing) kept me from admitting to myself that they were too big. Also, of the sizes remaining (I believe there was one left), none could have worked. So, I kept them and intended to use them as one of my winter boots. As such, I applied Saphir Everest Dubbin in order to really get them in shape for a northeast winter. More disclosure: I may have applied this too generously, and the color of the leather has become permanently darker. In my opinion (and this isnot rationalization, I prefer this color and its depth to that of "new" Chestnut Utah). Another side effect is some pull-up of wax during wear that is easily remedied with a very quick brush. Wearing them would progressively improve this, or Renomat would remove it (and the dubbin) altogether in a flash. Despite this winter treatment, I haven't worn them since September. At that point, I was irrationally upset about their not working out after wearing them twice and trying—I kid you not—4 different brands of insoles. But instead of selling them then, I just treed, bagged, and boxed them up and put them in the back of my closet. Out of sight, out of mind. Now, however, I finally know my correct EG size (10/10.5E / 10.5/11D — boy was I off), so I'm looking to get a pair of Galways that fit. That, however, will be my reward for selling these. Given the excellent price I paid and the treatment with dubbin I gave them, I'm pricing them at $775 for a hopefully quick sale. For reference, EG's current MSRP for Galways (excluding shearling/fur-lined or veldtschoen) is $1470. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or criticism of my photography skills or long-winded prose.
