    ^ As someone possibly interested, I prefer ridgeway or medway - Dainite isn't quite the same in really nasty weather.

    We plan to go with Ridgeway. It will be a 64 last. It's not clear what color suede. Also, there is no guarantee Gorse will be available.

    Thanks! Korshak.


    It's felt like summer here lately. I've been looking for some suede loafers since missing out on the G&G's from Barney's.



    My Amex might..


    Thanks! I got a lot of wear out of the few G&G's from Barney's that I got, so thought I'd add a few more at the right price.

    I own a pair of those that I bought here (possibly from the member who got them from StevenT) One of the best buys I ever made.

    I also have a pair of EG for RLPL shoes in hazel - great color.

    Totally agree. I'm wearing my Medway-soled rosewood Galways today. Dainite seems to be the default rubber sole of choice for people who want a boot for wet city conditions, but I'd rather the extra tread that a Ridgeway or Medway provide (and they're a lot better on ice). I'm not averse to the idea of a commando sole, either, as it's the most rugged of all the major options...

    Thanks!

    I unfortunately didn't ask about the other colors, and am certain about the color of Alderleys since I bought them. I can however add some other info: from left to right they are the Cardiff in cordovan on the 82, hazel Alderleys on the 202, and the Westminster on the 202.

    I'll try to get some pictures up of the Alderleys later.

    I have the Galway of both and would certainly suggest Ridgeway sole! Plus it looks much better with the 64 last IMHO

    I do agree with this comment from another post about some other boots.

    I love these ---------- boots, but I keep finding the low profile dainite sole is among the worst performing soles in wet, wintry conditions (some of my leather soled shoes and boots seem more secure)

    ^ I don't think I've seen an Alderley photo from the back before (or I haven't paid attention), but now I just want it more. That belongs in the Great Back Door thread [​IMG]

    All this talk of the Alderleys prompted me to wear mine today:

    Is that 202 or 82 last? Looks great either way.

    202, I've not had good luck trying to fit into the 82 last.

    The same thing here, 82 and 888 lasts do not work for me.

    I guess I'm glad I'm not alone. I've never found a pair of 82's that worked for me, 888 has been hit and miss. I picked up 3 pairs on the 888 last month that were surprisingly comfortable, but I've had a number of others that were just too narrow.

    Thanks for the feedback. Looks like we're foot twins. Someone (I think it was Hillary from EG) told me that the 82 last is the 888 last with a rounded toe. That cannot possibly be true. As Tony Gaziano said to me about Hillary, "Well, she didn't design the lasts, did she?" ;)

    I agree - that is not true in my experience. However, I do like both the 888 and 82. I save my 888 purchases for dressier shoes, and go with other lasts for more casual shoes/boots or for shoes/boots pulling double duty (dressy and casual).
