If you need three stripes, Terrex GTX ftw.

Do agree with this but the Blauvelts look better with jeans(plus they're GTX) whereas most of the terrex's look too 'trek' like. I have these and although they're not Goretex i hardly wear them cos of how they look https://www.sportsshoes.com/product/adi9699/adidas-terrex-tivid-mid-cp-walking-boots-~-aw18/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA4aXiBRCRARIsAMBZGz_i4P6LOTWnk58Cyts5QBHwluNWRCnXfPxE7X4EAtNGrvaAYLGMTJsaAuQ7EALw_wcB&gclsrc;=aw.ds

I assume driving / public transport is an option but you prefer to walk? Surely they would be loads quicker.

Edit: Which is how i get to work when i don't walk.

You need to PM the cycling thread. Your joints will be dust in a few years at the rate you are going.

Anyone on here own a pair of Aideu shoes? If so, how's the sizing? Some sites say TTS, some say size up…

Need some for work. Preferr a silhouette similar to CP or Crockett & Jones Rough Out suede.

Been looking at these for ages, not sure if they tickle your fancy….

I'm gonna pop down there and see what they look like in the flesh. Thanks for the link.

On Saturday was in M&S Oxford Street and tried on there Luxury Suede Chelsea Boot, for £79.99 they are not to shabby, the soles of them are a bit naff, but the shape and feel is very nice, considering the price point and company.

what were they like in the flesh?

What are some good (cheaper) alternatives to the SL Jodhpur? Usually I would check Meermin, but I don't like the shape of their iteration. I came across Scarosso but it seems like an overmarketed new brand. The best option I found is the Carmina, but I would change the buckle. Or is the SL quality worth the price?

There’s Story et fall but years on their site is still atrocious. Ami tend to a jodhpur each season that makes it to sale, bit less sleek in shape though. Buttero best quality for the money for sidezips, not sure they do a jodhpur though

SL jodhpurs hit sales fairly frequently now, I bought a spare pair for £375 from a flannels sale about a year ago. No other brands do ones which look even remotely as good. You can also buy lightly used for cheaper. Story et fall look shite in my opinion, knockoffs for upscale counterfeit shoppers. They've been in Bicester too.

If price is an issue then look on marketplaces

I've seen a few nice pairs of trickers kicking around on sale recently.
There are a few on the Trickers outlet store but they are mostly weird colours or on a  Red Dainite sole,these are nice but only have sizes 6 10 and 11
