    It's Thursday. Taking a mental break this week so not posting as much.

    Wearing my Galway 2's today. The only thing pretty here are the shoes.

    I switched the GG laces from my Alden Indy's to these. They seem to fit better here.

    Looking good. I actually liked the look of those laces in the Indys too. Was thinking of putting a pair in mine as well.

    Thank you!
    The GG looked good on the Indy, but I thought they distracted my gaze from the red hues in the Chrome XL leather. Just trying to find the right balance.

    That fair. Last year I had the GG flat whiskey laces in my 403 Indys but they are lighter in color than the round GG whiskey ones and the contrast was a bit much. I really like the slightly darker tan color of the round ones.

    That's what I was thinking a darker GG lace for the 403 would be about right.

    These Grasmere in 11G need a new home. Worn less than 10 times. PM me if this is of interest.

    Anyone know if the hand grade line contains any additional stiffeners/liners or extended heel counters?
