    Whisky shell boots are very nice in both Harlech and Galway.
    I wish this GMTO happens again.

    Get to it! I hear you though since I waiting until the first proper day in the low 70's to break them out. The cherry was the downpour I was caught in that night in the new boots. I haven't treated these at all yet but I'm gonna do a very light coat of cordovan cream followed by some defender soon. They definitely loook darker in these photos than real life but it's certianly a rich color. The vamp on the left boot gets rather dark in certain light but it really varies which is part of shells appeal, really.

    Thanks Chip!

    I would consider joining, Galway would be very interesting, but with the right sole. Would you consider Ridgeway soles?

    I would have preferred double leather sole with storm welt.
    From the functionality point of view I am more fun of Ridgeway than Dainite, so I can consider Ridgeway.
    but Ridgeway to me is really bad weather configuration, so it does not match up as a first candidate with whisky shell.

    I have taken to the lure of double leather myself.

    Nice shoes Mike!

    If I remember correctly, you are a C width (so am I). Are these UK E width? How did you size these compared to Alden Barrie, Plaza, and AE 65?

    Thanks

    Love them . . . still waiting to break mine out (along with my whiskey shell Galway 2 boots). It dipped down into the low 70s/high 60s for a couple days a week or two ago, but then it's back up to low 80s for at least the next week/10 days. Hoping for fall weather soon.

    I got an E width. I would crudely say that these 9.5Es are equivalent to a 10D Barrie. A tolerable fit for me...

    Yeah, I am with you. It's been hot out and making it hard for me to reach for a pair of shell boots...
