Thanks!

 

Yes, they've barely shown any signs of wear, even after 2 winters. The Zug grain just seems to be very hard wearing. My hope is that they will continue to provide many years of service.

They handled snow when I was out in Chicago with ease, and can pretty much withstand all forms of rain and muck. For those of you wondering what Zug grain is: Zug is a waterproof grained leather most often associated with "Veldtschoen" boots and shoes (Afrikaans for "field shoe" although the Vesdtschoen was developed by an Englishman, Albert Ingham of Northampton). Zug leather originates from the famous tannery of the Swiss town of the same name. The innovative, thrifty tanners of the area utilized a milk chocolate syrup in much the same manner as the Scots of Islay. The chocolate imparts the characteristic dark brown color and natural waterproofing of Zug leather (or so they say!).

Those are fantastic. Where did you pick those up?? It's rare to see a Stow in zug...

Thank you. They were samples that I picked up from the factory store in Northampton. Have seen a few others, but yes quite rare.

Carson, thank you very much for the reply. I did contact Richard and he also recommended the 10 1/2, but I figured that I'd get another opinion before making an overseas purchase!

Those are very, very nice indeed. I have a pair of Cheaney's in Zug that I love, and I can second you on the fact that they are very hard wearing and mine still look nice after a lot of abuse.

Will definitely keep an eye out for a pair of Stow's in Zug.
