Thanks, Alan - stand up guy, that Steven. I visit Leffot way too often. Glad you and I aren't the same size, and that UK8.5/US9 was still available for me, heh heh. I really thought I'd get the Galways with shearling but when I wore it again and walked around in it the dark oak/pebble grain worked better for me, given how I usually wear boots. Sorry for the double post, guys. TapaTalk + weird internet / cel service connection I guess.
