As a follow up to my question above, there are two pebble grain boots made by CJ for BB.

The first one is from their regular peal line, with an Msrp over $700.

The second one is for their black fleece line, but is priced a few hundred dollars less.

Any ideas as to the significant price discrepancy?

Hi all,

 

I seem to have a thing for the 348 last shoes and have just bought my 3rd pair as they seem to fit my feet so well! Tetbury this time in brown wax calf.

 

Does anyone have any tips for caring for wax (waxed) calf? I don't really want to add much shine to them. Same products as other shoes or can I find something specifically for waxed calf?

Whiskey Shell Skyes from the other morning.  They're really starting to get an awesome depth of color.  4 months old now.

Me too! It's a shame C&J whiskey shell is so hard to get.

Malton - 360 - Burnished Mahogany gives the shoe a different feel compared to the usual chestnut colour you see the Malton on.
More of the collection to follow!

 

Wow, I love those shoes. The Westbournes especially are truly superb. Thank you for sharing

:)

May I ask, how do suede shoes compare to leather ones in respect to longevity or susceptibility to damage from (scratches, water, etc)?

Suede kinda has a reputation as being fragile. But it isn't true. Treated with a melatonin spray, it's almost bulletproof. It definitely withstands water better than calf and especially shell. Check out this article.

I am in love with these suede oxfords. Excuse the laces... only thing I had on hand...

Just as I left for the airport today UPS arrived with a late birthday present to myself, a pair of Syke boots in dark brown cordovan with dainite soles. I had only seen them on the forum here along with their cousins the RL Lindrick's and never seen them in the "hide" as it where but had long lusted after a pair so in the end thought "sod it life's too short" and jumped in. I ordered direct from C&J who where very helpful and they advised me perfectly on size (10.5) as they fit great (I was panicking having never tried the 335). For me now the 335 last seems just slightly wider in the toe box than the 325 (when comparing the Coniston with the Skye) but these two lasts are pretty much similar everywhere else including the widest point of the foot. As for the boots themselves I am almost speechless, they are absolutely beautiful, solidly made with a deep dark hue that I look forward to seeing develop over the years. I realise they are only boots and as such should be treated as such and just worn but I have to say, despite the cost, they are just superb and I'm delighted I took the plunge. I will post a few pictures when I get back home and pass on some of the enabling powers these boots clearly possess. In summary my review of the Skye Cordovan boot by C&J could ( and some may say should) be condensed to just one word, QUALITY.

My suede shoes are my go tos when it rains. If there's salt on the streets though, they stay in the closet and calf and SWIMS are out.

Great boots.

Indeed, the Skye Boot, in its various colors and leathers, is an all-around wonderful boot.
