    Cheers. Pretty chuffed about them. Tried EG Dovers 606 in Nightshade and loved them. Alas, they were too wide, would have needed a UK D instead of E, and a tat expensive. Gabriel advised the Isham to be a better choice for narrow feet, low instep, so that's how I got there.

    This sounds like an excellent recommendation and the Isham is a great looking shoe. I've got a feeling this will work out a lot better for you, good luck.

    Well, seems like the gmto went to the grave for the Isham. Wich sole between single dainite, double dainite or double leather sole woud you guys choose between for EG Dover or GG Isham in doak/vintage oak?

    For me the sole you chose should correspond with the leather you chose for the upper. Dover CC and Dainite sole for example, or Dover Calf and Double Leather sole being the other typiclle alternative. For the Isham in calf I'd probably go with single leather being the shoe being a bit sleeker than the Dover.

    Just paid for my G&G mtos - GG06 Isham in English Grain and MH71 Warwick in Racing Green. As usual Patrik and Gabriel went above and beyond to get me exactly what I wanted :slayer::slayer::slayer:
