would take slightly less than the bureau btw.

I was looking at them as well - what size are you normally in clarks / red wing?

I guess these will need to be resoled? Would Timpsons do a decent job on them?

If you wear them a lot (clearly do) and like them then nothing beats a proper maker re-sole. http://www.grenson.co.uk/en_gb/repairs

They will do something like this with them; http://www.permanentstyle.co.uk/2010/05/how-great-things-age-edward-green-1.html#.VC3AUvldXuQ

Expendsive, but worth it if you want a job done proper.

Avoid Timpson they are shit,

get dainite put on them, I have it on a couple of pairs and they are bullet proof, really hard wearing, grippy in the wet and still good looking

just go to your best local indy, it'll be £50.

personally would not touch dainite with a bargepole - proper old man and make shoes heavy as fuk.

Anyone got any recommendations for any desert boots/chukka boots that are decent quality in the £50-60.00 price range, would love to get a pair of clarks desert boots but can't afford the £90.00 they are asking for them.

Keep an eye out for discount codes/sales, you'll be able to pick a pair of desert boots up for about £50. Zalando have some for £70 and there's probably a £10 off £50 code if you sign up to their newsletter.

Get on ebay. Very rare a pair goes for full whack on there.
