    Hendrix, who is your maker and why get a copy of the galway and not the real thing?



    I've seen yours. They are awesome! If you don't post them here quickly I will :p



    In the meantime I'll just crosspost mine.

    Nice! Can anyone identify the color of the uppers and kind of soles on these (Single, Double, Haf, etc)?

    Seeing as you put it like that...'scuse the flash (much less contrast between suede, shearling and calf in natural light), proper pics in a couple of days...

    Direct from Jermyn Street. They called me on Monday to let me know that they'd found a pair in my size and I bought them there and then.

    Wow. Those look like they have veldtschoen construction. Is this true? My Galways have a fudge welt.

    Yeah, they're one of EG's stock veldtschoen boots alongside the models in almond country calf (which I have) and the rosewood country calf model, all on the 64 last. Should be a great boot for a wet English winter.

    The boots came on last 89, material is 'Scotland Calf'', a leather EG does not offer at present and are in a very dark brown (bitter chocolate).
    The leather sole comes in a HAF (1/2 mid-sole) configuration.

    At least that were the details when EG produced a batch for RLPL in the late 90s/early 2000s.

    Hi guys, would appreciate some sizing advise.Looking at some EG's on the 202 last.What size would you recommend if I wear size 7.5UK for C&J's 348 and 337 and size 41.5 for Vass F last and 42 for the U-last?

    I only have EG on last 82 and 888, I have C&J in 337. I take half a size up in EG shoes over 337. From what I have hear all 202 should fit the same as 82 and 888 length wise but 202 might be a little wider. So I would recommend you take EG 202 last in 8 E UK. It is best if you can try it on.

    Go up a 1/2 size from C&J 348. The 202 is wider, and not elongated.

    Anyone have a comparison picture of EG's in Dark Oak and in Bronze. Never seen EG's in Bronze in real life, have seen them in pictures but in different lighting the color looks... well different. Also interested to hear your thoughts on the color.

    For what it's worth I am considering a pair of MTO Galway's in Bronze.

    White, Khaki, I could also see these going with a navy windowpane/check possibly. Very beautiful shoes I must say though.

    Shearling Galway in walnut country calf and mink suede, hopefully a feature of many winters to come, alongside the almond country calf model (both veldtschoen). Colour is most accurate in the bottom photo:

    Cheers!

    Boot cost around £900 I think (will check), and the shearling lining is just on the reverse of the suede so I went TTS on the boot itself. Just heading out in it now to test drive it at the local German Christmas Market...
