    I think they had some sort of pronunciation class here before, but I will try to write it the way it's supposed to be pronounced in Swedish:
    skoaktsijebolagett

    Edit: here's how it should sound:

    Leaves does Edward Green sell shoe trees for the 64 Last?

    Just thinking ahead for that pair of Galway I just pre-ordered.

    Leaves can you give some clarification on the shearling lining for the Galway preorder? How will this differ from the stock walnut/mink suede veldt shearling galway sold in the catalog?

    Thanks for the feedback, it really warms my heart that you guys feel we're doing a great job. Nothing is more rewarding in this line of work than hearing about positive customer experiences.



    Detroit is quite generous in fit, it was not actually an extra wide Detroit.



    Carmina and Bonafe does not actually use shearling, they use fur.

    Edward Green Galway is always just lined in the vamp (the area covering the foot) and not the shaft. The only part of the shaft that is lined is a small strip on the top of the shaft.



    No, not specific for the 64, I would use the same trees as for 202.



    I have not seen this version so I cannot comment. But I would think it's only the material that will be different.



    Forest is available in three widths as MTO: E, EE and EEE. Please e-mail us for fitting advice on MTOs. [email protected]

    I am now waiting for my Carmina balmoral boots in cognac cordovan and am a bit giddy about this purchase from Skoaktiebolaget. Very helpful folks and as courteous and as they come. Now all I'm worried about is fit because looking at the steep climb up the tongue on the profile of these boots I'm hoping they don't require you have a high instep for them to fit properly. Hang tight and I'll know soon.
