John White Shoes and Boots. Any good?????? - Page 2

post #16 of 17

I have a pair of John White black derbys which I've been wearing to work regularly for more than 2 years and they are holding up quite well, with a nice shine on the toes (further back the uppers look a bit worse, but not much worse than the lower-end C&J I've seen recently which cost 3x times more...). I got them for £95 in January 2011. I wouldn't buy them again because I can afford better shoes now, but if I were looking to spend around £100 on formal shoes, I'd definitely consider them.

I own bourton tan brogue boots from JW.
Firstly need to say it's my first pair of classic footwear. They are from premium Jw range and cost 185£.At the same time bought dark brown DM Affleck brogue boot in dark brown (130 £), so I could compare these two pairs of boots.
I like design, sleek and beautiful, and grained tan leather is awesome. Leather is very thick and very soft (compared to DM).Boot is full leather lined.
I don't like the fitting, it is for narrow foot, so don't trust they say medium F at JW website.Thick socks are the problem.
Boot is blake-stiched and made in Portugal.
The worst thing about the boot is lack of cushioning in the heel.Soles are stiff and not for long walks(DM soles are soft like sneakers in comparison with JW).Thanks to my cobbler, he added some padding to boot's footbed.He criticized cardboard insole (under the leather one) and said it wouldn't last long.
I bought these boots at 50% discount. Don't think it's worth full price.


P.s.
Colour of the left boot started to fade out after one month wear, fixed with colour rennovator.
