Rain balmoral boot is a snug fit for me, mainly across the instep. The same size in Soller balmoral boot is not as tight across the instep -- I may just be lacing my boots too tight. The Soller cups my heel perfectly and no slippage even unlaced. Granted, both experiences are with boots so take with a grain of salt.
I certainly cannot compete with Skoak's photography or backdrops. My first two orders from Skoak just happened to be my first two pairs of polo suede. I agree with the sentiments on the true color is difficult to photograph.- polo suede boot on the Soller last- polo suede NST on the Forest lastThere is a minor imperfection on the vamp of the right boot, but I will not lose any sleep over it. [[SPOILER]] Last, but not least... [[SPOILER]]
A pleasant surprise this Friday morning. Just received email confirming a Skoak delivery even though it was scheduled for next week. One of the few advantages of living in same city as FedEx's HQ. Will celebrate with some BBQ for lunch.
Pics to follow.
