Doc Martens seem weirdly popular with the intern / graduate crew at work. Especially the non-binary / woke types.

These Doucal are decent, FSR at around £100 shipped.

Do Danner mountain lights go for any cheaper than £250 in sales in the U.K.? Or is that the very cheapest?

Most likely because they're durable as fuck and they've also started doing a lot of vegan options.

My wife's got solovairs (they make them for toast) and I think the difference in quality is night and day - much much better quality leather and lining on solovairs for the difference in price.

Just posting in here too. What is the quality of Virgil's compared with Viberg? Can get a pair for roughly the same cost, so would be good to know.

Main diff for me is weight. The Vibergs I’ve handled were built like tanks, whereas the Virgils were a lot lighter. Probably stand the test of time less, but comfortable and easier to wear.

Got a pair of Danner Mountain light last week and went a half larger as they don't come with insoles. After putting insole in they're good and have a little room for thicker socks when temp drops. Really comfortable and pretty bomb proof for wet/cold.

On the 650 last I would go with your Brannock size and buy a thin insole like a Superfeet carbon. Don't worry about the label of EE width. If anything, size up half. Had real difficulty in sizing for actual walking.
