    Yes! But excuse me for asking (I seem to be the only one here that does this kind of thinking), but how much would a make-up like that cost? Ball-park figure?

    No VAT would be a real help in this scenario to help offset some of the cost

    I'll e-mail Edward Green first thing in the morning. What I'm thinking is this: why have we not seen this make-up before? It's impossible no one has thought of this before. Is there a technical issue in production with the Galway in crup? Will EG just not make it for some reason? I'll get to the bottom of this, fear not!


    Ball-park if it's possible: 9840 SEK ex VAT (about $1515 USD).

    This would be just perfect for the shaft.

    I always figured you could smell a cordovan boot discussion.

    Dare I ask why so many prefer a two tone/contrast Galway? In all seriousness, I am genuinely curious about why so many prefer this to a single material?
    The Galway makeup has been popular for ages, but this contrast desire seems so fashionable recently. Would someone care to explain? Thank you.

    I agree a cordovan Galway could be very cool in any iteration, particularly if not in some outlandish color. Cheers.

    For me, I fell in love with the dark oak/walnut country calf makeup. That was the only I'd seen it. So when I think Galway, I see that style makeup. I have seen makeups in all one material and I wouldn't kick it out of bed.

    I completely agree: stick to simple choices for classic shoes - will make them last even longer imo.

    I'm probably in but only if it will be single tone.

    I think contrast when I think Galway - it seems by far and away the prevalent choice for that boot, and it looks awesome that way. Consider dddrees' recent acquisition - wouldn't be as sharp in all medium blue or all midnight blue. Plenty of choice in predominantly monotone derby boots from EG - Alderly and Nevis, for example.

    Not saying a monotone Galway would necessarily be a bad thing. I actually like the idea of one colour shell, but grain on the shaft for a sublte contrast in texture.

    Although I have one in the works that is all one leather, this is more of a true gentleman country boot. It's a Veldtschoen in Rosewood Country Calf. However the other two I have are in two different leathers. For me the stitching on the side of the shaft is a perfect place to use two different types of leather or material. The two different colors and or textures just adds more character to an already great looking boot.

    For the record, I was not saying I dislike the two tone/contrast Galways; some of them look quite smart. However, my favorite Galway makeups tend to be a single material and tone.

    @dddrees I really dig that rosewood country calf makeup. If I was in the market for a $1000+ pair of boots to beat up on I definitely would have participated in that.

    I'd been thinking about getting a pair of Galways in the tougher wearing configuration for a bit. Thank goodness Skoak came along with this makeup, that's all it took to make me pull the trigger.
