For those who are interested: Herring's annual December sale has started.
Thanks for your response DWF. I do have a question: Why do you call it the heel seat instead of the welt? This is a 360° welted boot, is this part of the welt called differently?
One of my Loake Pimlico boots, which I've bough as bad weather boot, has an issue with the welt which I'd like to describe as splitting. I have worn these boots about 5 times. I always thought the welt was made out of one single strip of leather, but it looks like this welt has been made of some kind of pressed leather layers which are now separating. Has anyone ever seen this happen and should this be fixed or can't it hurt?
My guess these are samples where they only made one left and one right shoe. It's a shame they are being sold this way because they are genuine Grenson Masterpiece shoes.

Anyone?
Any clue who made these? Seller claimed made by Grenson, but the printing inside the shoe looks unfamiliar to me. Also the nail pattern is off (Grenson has 7/11 nails to the sides of the heel, these have 7/10) /edit: just noticed that my grenson masterpiece shoes do have the 7/10 nail arrangement while the Rose line has 7/11
Had to Google red-rot but that pretty much describes the leather on these boots DWF. Strange since these are new boots and not used ones. Incorrect storage maybe the cause I guess. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_rot_(leather) Actual auction:http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=121205763258
I was happy to have found a Cheaney sample boot in a museum calf like color on eBay but received them like this: Teared leather and large cracks. What can cause this? Dried out leather?
Kiwi aqua stop (aka Super protector) works just the same in my experience. And is just over 2 euros in my local supermarket here.http://www.kiwicare.com/kiwimcmssite/us/products/leather/super-protector.html
