as you - and others - will have other experiences with this kind of shoe-bottom, you are welcome to explain the purpose and try to convince me.

Thanks W! Just spent an hour conditioning and shining them. They're starting to show a deeper shine than the superficial glossy one they had as new.

Cheers

Picked up a pair of factory 2nd Prada chukkas. shows some creases on the sides from improper storage, some scratches, and uneven colour. But it was really comfortable so I picked them up for about USD$217. The sales rep told me they were made by Church's. Anybody can verify?

I had to re-quote this. I can't believe these only cost $400. I'd pay more if anyone has anything like this to sell...

Prada owns Church's so in a sense, Prada makes Church's. Regardless, those look to be shell and have a nice shape so you got a killer deal. Retail was probable $800+

I just bought a pair of Wolverine Montague's and love them. My only complaint is that I assumed all the Goodyear welted Wolverines were made in the USA but these
are made in China. Aside from that, the construction appears the same as the regular 1000 mile boots. I had to size down 1 whole size just
like the regular ones and they fit like a glove. The leather is Horween and is beautiful and will definitely patina well. The boot is also sleeker in the
vamp so it ought to not wrinkle as much as other chelsea boots (RM Williams).

pics of mine are below

Upper: Horween Predator Leather
Lining: Leather Sheepskin
Footbed: Full Leather Over Foam
Midsole: Leather
Welt: Leather
Outsole: Leather/Rubber
Construction: Goodyear Welt

I recently received a pair of these bad boys... One of the wisest decisions I have ever made, they are a BEAUTIFUL boot.

Hope it's alright to quote this post from 2008. The JLP Brooklands is fab. The salesman (Jermyn Street) said they'd stopped making it, then ushered me to the door, right in the middle of a discussion we were having about the Battle of Waterloo. Still don't know whether he was lying, or just didn't like me (hard to believe). The G&G Chelsea is also fab. Lear
