Shoe Damage Report & Shoe P0rn Central - Part II - Page 1105

post #16561 of 20761
My missus' old boots leaked today, since she always wanted a pair Dr Martens 1460s, we did a bit of shoe shopping.

With my own prejudices against patent and binder finishes, I convinced her to get a pair in full grain calf red vintage, which is also a lot more comfortable then the other leather finishings.

I steered her away from black, since it's like the choice for every other girl who is wearing a pair of Dr Martens, plus I love oxblood as a colour for shoes.

Only downside is that my burgundy shoe polish and elbows will be getting extra work out since she is going to wear them a lot and wants me to polish them like my own shoes... butbut.gif

Then you should have bought her Tricker's instead of DMs...but they do look great. :)

Haha, very true, my excuse is that there is no Tricker's stockist in Sydney for her to try on! rolleyes.gif

Well, can't solve the trying on problem, but a lot of ladies' boots seem to come up here,  And if you're a UK 9.5, ignore what I just said. :)

thanks, awesome place to pick up seconds. biggrin.gif

they don't really say the fault, from the photos, can't really tell either.

I think it's a mixture of very slight seconds, and just end of line oddities in some cases.  Worth a go anyway at such a big saving - especially as you get to deduct the VAT too.

Phase 1: collect dozens of shoes.

Phase 2: ?

Phase 3: profit.

Anyways, I wrote up an anatomy and review text about C&J shoes with my usual picture angles for last comparison. Up close: Ashdown in Horween #8 shell cordovan, double leather soles, last 341.

Nothing to not like about C&Js. These are great and my size too.
