Saw one on some forum modelled by some asian fella who obviously buys his shoes 3 sizes too big. I sized down 1 size from my usual and if they're shit they have free ups returns so it's all good.

I bought them jodhpur boots and backed them, they were really nice but they are really light and they would just get ruined in no time.

christ, some up north stores might still have them at that price?

i sized down 1 and replaced the insole with a thin one and they fit great, have no clumpy/shape issues

Reckon I should put shoe trees in my CP derbies? Obviously the leather is not supple, so I'm in doubt. I'd have to buy a new pair of trees for them.

anyone had a pair of quoddys with gum soles before? they look like they would wear down pretty quick…

The camp soles are very hard-wearing in my experience. Quoddy/Yuketen and the like won't get trashed without serious use.

cheers mate. not sure whether to go with them or red wings. had a pair of these chukkas years ago, but seems like they don't do this style anymore, they all seemed to be a more rounded toe if you know what i mean



these look similar, but they are suede which is useless in manchester at this time of year. anyone know if they do a leather with a water proof upper? thanks

There's a few old style RW wabasha on Rakuten for around 140 which have a similar shape to the top ones.

Failing that use some waterproofing stuff on some suede?

cheers for that. quite similar those, bit more of a step rather than a flat sole though. quoddys winning at the moment.
