Fun idea, but don't forget that a considerably large portion of forum members weigh kilograms and footslog through life metre by metre. Cheers

I'm certain Kemal & Co. will sort this problem out for you. Their after-sales service is nothing but...

Doesn't matter how well off you are. If you let someone charge you €500 for two shots of vodka then you're a f***ing idiot. Cheers

Water resistant to a certain degree maybe. Water can always get in through the junction between the sole and the upper. As long as you condition the leather in an appropriate way and, as I said above, don't wade, they'll resist water. Cheers

Imagine that ordering at the RMW store in London will be expensive. Your best bet is to check out the onlines stores: Bootsonline or Nungar. Cheers

Definitely the RMW. It's a wholecut. Cheers
Check out this post for some toe comparison pics: Cheers
