Perhaps they’re made by C&J, but that apron is clearly not the Galway II apron. So looks like those boots are a, “reasonable facsimile”, as we say in the federal government.

You’re right about the apron, it’s certainly not the same. When I got the boots, the sticker on the box had the 325 last printed on it, and a card inside from C&J talking about the CF Stead tannery suede used, and rubber stamped on the back of the card was ‘Galway II 6116’ which corresponded to the model on the front sticker. so figured it must have been a Galway variant, albeit different apron stitching.

may not be Galway proper, but Galway metropolitan area; or a suburb of Galway perhaps.

How is the C&J US “D” sizing compared to UK “E” sizing? I am seeing a pair of Galways on Grailed in size 13D. But I’m sure it is too big for me. 😄

Such a good looking boot.

Just checked to confirm - I have a couple pairs in standard UK E sizing and one in US sizing from Barneys (RIP) that are on the same last. 9.5E and 10.5D on 348 are very, very close if not identical - Length and width.

That makes sense bc I think Barney's has all of their sizing in US. So a UK9.5E should be exactly equivalent to a US10.5D

Freaking want those. If I'm 7.5Uk in lobb and EG... would I keep that size for the 325 or go down to 7uk?

I took my standard CJ sizing. 1 full size down from US, half size down from EG because I wear them mostly during the winter with heavier boot socks.
