Leather quality was unacceptably low, fit ok but nothing special.
Didn't get any.
Thanks I use similar, What i was looking for was a proper boot tree i.e a tree that fills the boot all the way up.
I have a problem with some Gardener boots that I bought in a size 9.5 G, they fitted well in the store, but have stretched over the past week, and I am thinking really, a half size smaller would have been perfect (I was told in the shop that they should fit perfectly from the first wear, but from reading parts of this forum I realize that this doesn't apply to the heavy greasy kip leather of the gardener boots). I have tried thicker socks to compensate, but this requires ankle socks over thick normal socks, and my feet get too hot and uncomfortable.
I tested some foam innersoles from my old RMW stockyard boots in them, and that seemed to work perfectly, however I am wondering if having foam innersoles somehow voids the guarantee on the shoes when it comes to resoling? or if this somehow damages the shoes in wear?
Any recommendations for a particular material or brand of insert would be appreciated.
