 Sorry, matey! When we've sorted a day for our sally into Northampton, fancy booking in a slot to pop into the EG factory shop as well as C&J?
Been slowly sorting out my boots prior to a possible downsize and given the EGs a little loving today. Didn't think anyone would mind my leaving a few pics here...of all of them, the almond CC ones have proved to be the ones I've got most mileage out of, and the shearling ones have taken the most beating since I've had them. Surprised at how much the walnut CC has faded in parts; the boots really are ageing nicely...

But I know from my own experience that...
They've stood in worse...
Maybe, maybe not, but it's always dodgy making assumptions based on your own set of circumstances...
