They did a really good jobs polishing them boots! may you wear them well, they are gorgeous.
Thank you, Chris!
Now THAT is a PROPER new shoes presentation. Awesome boots - big congrats!
I have yet to see a new pair of shoes or boots that couldn't benefit from a proper professional shine (excluding suede, or course). Of course, a very skilled and patient enthusiast could accomplish close to the same results - but my shine skills are moderate and my patience minimal.
And the greatest benefit I have found in a pro shine is the ease of care going forward. For most of my shoes that have received the pro touch, a wipe with a damp cloth and quick buff with a dry one is all they seem to need for a very long time.
Even when I don't go the pro route, I will generally give any new pair of shoes a light coat of neutral polish before the first outdoor wearing. For the same reason I will wax a brand new car as soon as I get it home.
Not Edward Green, but to illustrate the pro shine difference:
1) Vass boots fresh out of the box:
2) After shine:

I now pronounce you..
Sir Roger P.
CMT, a word to the wise.. Last year, I ordered some shoes from SKOKTIEBOLAGET and along with that a Burgol Suede brush. Don't use it on your Galways! I have the exact same pair like yours from BB and where I brushed it, while it didn't completely ruin it you can tell that the suede didn't like it.. Ever since I have been using a Saphir crepe brush. Actually today, after seeing your beautiful boots and the professional shine , I got a bit jealous and decided to order the Saphir suede renovateur spray in Dark brown to try and mask the damage (which is about 3 inch long by 1 inch wide). So I will try spraying a bit in the heel, to see if the color matches and if it does , spray I will. Anyway, sorry for the long post, point was be carefull what suede brush you use, they are not created equal.
Roger P. , UPR Crust was gracious enough to show us a glimpse from his shoe closet. I expect nothing less from you ( same goes for momsdoc as well!)
Roger just needs to find his wide-angle lens first
