 Hi Kevin we have been a little quiet over the last couple of months - while we are in sale and waiting for the new season's stock to come in there is not a lot to post about though the last post was just two weeks ago not two months! However, we will be post lots in the coming weeks as the new season's stock arrives. Unfortunately, as detailed on our website, we are limited to the number of Crockett and Jones shoes we can order - this is a result of their success and...
Hi EnglishShoe Thank you for taking the time to provide this very helpful feedback. It is an issue we are aware of resulting from the way the product categories are searched. However it is concerning to hear first hand how irritating it becomes and what the ultimate result is.  There are number of planned changes to the product browsing and search facilities, and this issue is one the list, only perhaps it is a little higher on the list now! Thanks again Mike
Hi Munky Thanks for your message. It is an unusual problem - over the years we have sold a lot of Bourton (and Stow) and we are not aware of this being a frequent issue. Before we start to try and diagnose this problem are you able to send us some pictures of the affected soles - preferably both side by side then a close up of the affected area? I would just like to confirm the degree of wear and how this compares to the wear on the rest of the sole. Of course I could pass...
  Hi all, hoping some for help or direction please. I have these Trickers Grasmere which were used, when I obtained them -  both boots had these black marks at over the toes. They also have similar marks over the ankles.  I was hoping to strip down the polish and see if it might be possible to stripout whatever was causing the marks, so I applied Saphir renomat and this is what I have now:   This isn't really the effect I was after! It is as if this area absorbs the...
Just a quick report back on my grenson boots. They are looking a lot better after a gentle application of renomat, followed by sponging with warm water. I think that now they have dried out it is possible to see that they might benefit from another gentle warm sponging - there is still some wax embedded in the leather.   I was wondering about the next step - it was suggested that I use Saphir Renovator - presumably this contains no waxes? Just a little nervous having got...
Thanks guys, that blog post is particularly interesting. I was wondering, given the quality of their shoes, why they were not known about more widely or featuring within retailers ranges. Perhaps this is because they are still a 'small family business'.   That video is just a pleasure to watch. I think I will watch it again. And again.
Thank you for your suggestions!   I think that most if not all of the black mark had gone, and I don't think it is at all a factor in the mark that is left - what's left is unfortunately much worse, covering a larger area. I suspect you are right that I applied too much and too vigorously. I probably didn't let it try fully before applying the cream.   I will give your suggestions a try and report back!   Thanks again
I have had a bit of a Renomat disaster. I probably definitely should have posted a pic of the boot before arming myself with Renomat but I am hoping it is possible to be rescued from the mess I am now it.   The Grenson boot below had a very bad black mark on it - quite a big mark, not sure what the origin of the mark was, but it was certainly not coming off with simple cleaning.   I armed my self with some Renomat and was quite enthusiastic with my application....
Hi   Whilst I can find the odd reference to Buday shoes on here and one other forum site, other than their website it seems very difficult to find out much about this brand.   Does anyone have any direct experience of buying from them or their product?   I came across some of their shoes recently - they appear wonderfully made but I wonder what the story is behind them and where I might find their shoes in a shop somewhere (other than Budapest - though I am...
Many thanks - I was beginning to think that nobody on this thread had any non-welted shoes!   This thread is a wonderful resource. I am hooked.
