That is steep? There must have been price increase.
Corthay is a bit too fashion forward for me. I didn't find the shoes I handled to be any better constructed than eg.
Yes, a slight hike.
With so many awesome Galway contributions to this thread, I am finding it pretty hard to decide what make up I like the most and that should be part of a future order. Currently, I am somewhere in between dark oak/mink suede and dark oak/grain, but I am not sure. I am thinking that the suede version might be a bit less versatile. Up until recently I was convinced that the grain version was the only way to go.
What do you guys think? What is the nicest Galway make up?
I hope this helps!
Poor EG - they have been relegated to the likes of Kurt Geiger, Russell & Bromley
hoodog - I don't think there's a "best" - but I haven't seen a pair I'd swap these for:
That said, I'd probably say the same if I owned them in blue, or in that lovely bronze shade one retailer is carrying. I don't think the suede / calf combo is any less versatile - it's a matter of personal preference - but for me, I decided that I wanted a dressier all suede bal boot as a companion to the Galway.
+1. Those are just gorgeous.
EG cannot do anything to the pair of shoes linked above. They were color with a gold cream polish.
Here is their response:
The shoes in question were polished with a gold cream for a fashion show as you mentioned.
I am afraid it is not possible to now change the colour with any degree of success.
Quote:Thanks tdude. Here is the bronze pair from Leathersoul I was talking about:
put black polish on top?
Not sure. I contacted EG because even with a re-craft they could still be a steal.

Can anyone confirm whether or not the EoM sale is ongoing? I would love to pick up a pair of calf/suede Shannons.
I emailed the info@ email address but posts here indicate Mark is the gentleman with whom to speak. Can someone share his contact details?
Sorry bud, the sale's over. But that email address you posted is answered by Mark.
