Yeah, I didn't realize that was called the R2. Thought I just created it in my mind!Just looked it up, R2 is the R1 plus leather midsole haha
You have a good rotation of Galways there. I was a skeptic of the 82 last Galway but received the dark brown Utah/mocha suede version from Gentlemen's Footwear as a birthday present from my wife. They are great (and so is she).
To me, your rotation screams for something on country calf on the 72 or 64 last, maybe even in veldtschoen construction. Rosewood CC, Mahogany CC, even Walnut CC. GF has a grey country calf version coming in. That would be unique. FWIW I have a mahogany CC Galway on the 72 last and wear those things all the time.
You could also do the 82 lasted Rosewood CC Galways from Frans Boone.
