    Steve says he can most likely repair it no issue, about $90 I have to send the shoes to him so he can see them to evaluate. So he seems to be the best option and cost seems ok to me.

    I hope everything goes as you expect with the repair.
    Please post pics once you get the shoes back.

    From this angle they look more red than they actually are:

    For those of you who have lusted for the EG Galway in shell. But not keen to pay the $2K price tag. This is your opportunity. Basically the shell is being added for free.

    @morsepoint is offering the opportunity to pick up a pair of EG shell at around $1600 US. I for one am encouraging this makeup

    Only two more are needed (3 total is all he requires), 70% down now, bal due in 12-14 weeks or so.
    Here’s my proposed makeup:
    Whiskey upper
    matching color Utah shaft
    82 Last
    Purple Lining
    HAF Sole
    with or without Metal Toe Taps.
    with or without pull tabs

    Heading out with Green Shell Carmina Balmoral Boots today. I see now in the sun they need a brush from sitting in the closet for the summer.
    But that won't stop me from enjoying the day with them.
