    Hello Farhad,

    it is the E Last and normal i have a realy good feeling in it.

    i wear the Lhasa socks from Falke. this one are a thicker one indeed.

    i really hope that after some days of wearing the heel slipping will be better.
    because so i will not use them very often.

    Did anyone know this problem to?

    Does anyone cut the pull tabs off their Galways? I have tolerated mine for some time now but am tiring of my pant leg getting caught in the damn thing. I don't use the pull tabs whatsoever so they are, for me, functionally irrelevant.

    ^^^ I don't use them either, but don't find that they get in the way.

    If I had Galways I would probably find them useful. I use the pull tabs of all my other boots when I put them on.

    I would have no problem cutting them on some boots, but they seem too built into the design of the Galway. My biggest issue is the speedhooks shredding through the standard laces.

    Yes it is true that sometimes my chino trousers can get stuck on top of the tab but I have no problem with that. I would be careful trying to get them removed as they are stiched onto the back of the boot which can be quite useful while putting the boots on.

    You can have the ski hooks replaced for eyelets but I think that would increase the effort while putting the boots on and of!

    Luc13, you may want to try another last or a different size on the Galway, I have the Galway boots also on the 82 and 202 last and both fit differently. I am normally a size 8 but in the 82 last I have to take an 8.5UK. The most comfortable fit is the 202 last for me but the look is also different!

    Anyway, i hope the problem solves soon for you because they are beautiful boots.

    Quote:I find pull tabs useful on a Chelsea boot, and to a lesser extent on a Balmoral boot. But the w-i-d-e opening afforded by the Galway's open lacing renders them unnecessary - for me, anyway. That said, I would have less hesitation about cutting off internally stitched elastic pull tabs. But the thick leather externally stitched pull tabs of the Galway? No way in heck I'm messing with those.

    Thanks for the responses fellas. For now the tabs will stay put. I am always reluctant to remove a permanent part of a boot/shoe - even if, for me, the part serves no functional purpose.

    I'm sure you can send it to Nick V. and he can take care of that easily if you eventually want it gone. Sometimes things are better left to professionals.

    It would probably be easier and more aesthetic to put a few neat stitches through the pull tabs so they wouldn't jut out.

    You may have a rough edge or burr on the metal. You should be able to find it and a light file will help.

    I particularly like the Galway style pull tab. Don't mind trousers getting stuck behind them.

    Speaking of Galways...
