    If it's with a brown grain shaft (like in the image of the Galway) and a dainite sole, I'm in.

    I am the same as @Noroi - will be in for oak upper, brown grain shaft and dainite (dainite branded rather than Carlos santo's "dainite"-lookalike) sole.

    Great, 2 more needed !

    Since everybody seems to prefer dainite, we'll forget about double leather sole.
    @Leaves is it possible to have pictures of oak calf side by side with oak grain (since oak grain seems darker than oak calf), and oak calf with brown grain ?

    I almost feel guilty for participating in this Calway chaos. I think skoak has a winner on their hands with this makeup - maybe the should try to offer it RTW in a few different makeups, would probably be a good seller.

    Did anyone here order the stock version? Curious to see pictures out in the wild as it might just be the angles but the upper/toe looks a little "longer" from certain angles than the EG Galway.

    It also helps to know the size of the boot photographed to get a sense of proportion - but there are certainly observable differences in the lines as compared with the One Boot To Rule Them All.

    No matter - it's a very attractive derby boot in its own right and a compelling value.

    Daily bump for this one, link is up and ready to go.


    @Leaves , Just about to place my order but because it's under 1500 SEK it's asking for me to select a shipping though I know it would normally be free via FedEx. How do I go about that if I choose to go with the free FedEx? I might actually change to Canada Post and hope they sneak through customs vs the certain charges from FedEx.

    Count me as confirmed on this one! It's the other one I'm hesitant about

    Not sure of the skoaktiebolaget gents knew they unleashed a beast here :D There is really so much combinations and given the price point you can really go two ways for the price off one EB

    I would be in for an all-grain boot (preferably brown or oak). I don't see the need to Galyway-ify every boot, personally ;)

    No, IMO. It's the very definition of a country boot.

    That would be hard to justify for me based on my existing rotation, but also hard to resist based on awesomeness for the dollar. So that's a maybe. [​IMG] Havana Grain looks freaking awesome.

    The Navy calf shaft / Havana grain upper is a real interesting proposition as well.

    Agreed on the navy/Havana! I definitely don't need it but am also not sure I could resist if it got some gmto traction.

    I too may be interested in this GMTO. I would prefer a suede shaft - if anyone else is so inclined.
