Definitely more slippery than regular rubber sole heels but really not bad at all compare to V-cleats.  As long as you dont walk only on polished marble stone floors.

don't know why they'd be any more slippery than any other leather soled shoe.
you can go out on any rough sidewalk, put your foot down firmly, and twist a few times if they are.


Heel nails...

Let me know how the Loakes compare, quality wise.

What happened to Tetsbury?   They already old enough to be ir-repairable?

Their condition is fine ->

I just cleaned them this week (Click to show)
Operation Tetbury

Now wait untill they're dry...


* * *


– I brushed the shoes to get rid of dust and dirt. I also cleaned the soles with an old brush.

– I put some of the suede shampoo (the small bottle in the pic) in a bowl of water (let's say 1:10 ratio shampoo/water)

– I rinsed the shoes under a running tap (lukewarm); made them real wet (while trying to keep the inside of the shoe dry)

– I took the yellow side of the spunge (not the scratchy green side), dipped it in the bowl with shampoo/water and 'brushed' the whole shoe

– I left it with the shampoo on for a few minutes

– Then I rinsed the shoe under a running tap to remove the soap

– Then I repeated the process and gave the laces a litte rinse in the bowl

– After that, I put newspapers inside the shoe to get the inside dry

– I left the paper in for an hour or so and then put the shoe trees back in

Now, I'll leave them to dry for a day or so (don't know how long it will take). If they're dry tomorrow, I'll give them a brush
(I use a regular shoe brush, the one you see in the first picture, not a suede brush) and then spray them with Saphir Super
Invulner spray (the black spray can). After that, I'll apply Saphir Rénovateur to the sole edges and the soles themselves.
I leave that to dry for say half an hour. If the edges need some colour, I'll use a medium brown Saphir crème to touch
up the colour. I might do part of the sole as well. I'll leave that to dry, and give it a brush for a nice finish.

That's about it, I think.

Rénavateur applied on the sole edges:

The suede still feels a bit damp, so I'm going to let it dry some more.
Also did the soles:

Added some brown wax on to finish the sole edges:

What's left to do: brush and spray (when the leather is completely dry.

NOBD - nice new boots! Wear them well. How would you compare the fit to the Tetbury? I recall the Tetbury being quite narrow. Are these Loakes also on the narrow side fit-wise? They look noticeably wider in the photos.
