yep feeling the blues. the reds are nice too, if they darkened a little with wear they might actually be wearable.

Not sure of a certain cobbler that has ripple soles in stock but I know a supplier if you want where can get for like 15quid, think they only have black though and then any cobbler can attach

New pair of Timberlands just arrived. Got the wheat classic ones from the official store for £112 (£48 pounds off) using the 30% off code which has been knocking about the last week.

Made up with them. Sized down 0.5 this and fit like a glove. Had one other pair 6 years ago which i sized wrong at the time. And the quality on these new pair shits all over the ones that previous pair i had. All the materials are better, sole is alot less high at the back vs the front, the fit at the toes is far less bulbous also, and the colour is a darker shade of yellow. I remember on my last pair there was a terrible glue-job on the sole. On this these there's still some glue but it's not noticeable unless you really look and as it's in the shame shade of yellow as the boot. Know they aren't red wing or aldens, but for me they are still the best looking winter boot around and one of the only ones which is actually insulated and waterproof. recommended.
