They look really good.
Slightly annoys me when places offer free shipping over a certain amount but exclude sale. If I'm spending £200 with you seems a bit churlish to charge me extra when someone spending £80 on full price stuff doesn't pay anything.

To do with margins surely. On sale items that extra fiver could turn a profit into a loss for the retailer.

Small potatoes for End etc but could be life and death for a boutique in St Albans.

Anyone know the difference between the Astorflex Greenflex and Driftflex? Is it the suede? The sole? They both look like desert boots. The Ettoflex appears to be different because of the sole.

Greenflex are lined and a leather sole under the crepe. A suede chukka boot, quite substantial. The Driftflex are unlined and more like Clarks in weight / construction - a light desert boot.

Nice one. Does that make the Ettoflex even more substantial then?

Not tried them but they look to have the same welt / sole construction as the Greenflex but with a slightly beefier outsole.

Has anyone got any Chelsea Boot recommendations in the £100-£150 range.
Need some for work. Preferr a silhouette similar to CP or Crockett & Jones Rough Out suede.

Astorflex Bitflex are nice, well within your budget especially if you get a pair on sale.

Am I right in thinking you should size down in Trickers country collection boots?

What last - Bourton - the one used for the Stow boots?

In which case yes, half a size generally. They’re still a fairly roomy last in general, though. Even in the size that ‘fits’ you.

Burfords not sure which last, I'm usually an 8 in shoes and boots, 8.5 in trainers, need a 9 in 70s cons because my feet ar pretty wide.
I've taken a punt on a 7.5 as they didn't have an 8 and the price was right, do you recon they'll do?
