Gentlemen,

 

I just picked up the C&J For BB Cap Toe Cordovan High Boots during the sale yesterday.

 

Not my first C&J's but I am excited nonetheless.

 

How would you men rate the overall quality of those boots?

 

Just looking to tease myself a bit before their arrival.

 

Thanks in advance.

I just came back from Leatherfoot where I had my first opportunity to check out a fairly broad selection of C&J shoes and boots in person.  I came away very favorably impressed.  There is definitely a Tetbury and a  Coniston in my future.

I think I just ordered the BB version of the Coniston in #8.

 

Yes, C&J has always impressed me with their offerings.  Looking forward to getting these in the mail.

 

Thanks.

Good tidings, 

 

I am looking to pick up the Skye II boots in dark brown shell, but have a few questions for the esteemed members of this forum.

 

First, where to buy?

I'm located in the US, in Chicago. I contacted the New York store, who informed me that they would cost $1150. On C&J's website, the price is listed as 675 pounds, or about $814 minus vat at the current exchange rate. Is it possible to buy from C&J in the UK to get a more favorable price? Or are there online retailers in the UK that I could order from? (I haven't found stock on any UK sites yet.)

 

Second, sizing. 

I am a pretty standard 10D on the Brannock device. I don't own any C&J shoes yet, but take a 10D on the AE 5 last pretty comfortably. Having read through a few (hundred) pages on this thread, am I correct in assuming that I should go with a UK9 on the 335 last? 

 

Thanks all.

You can call one of the UK stores and order directly through them for shipping to the U.S.

1. Yeah, just send an email or call one of the UK stores.
2. That sounds about right but as always, YMMV.

Recently bought the exact same pair from C&J in London via email. Superb service and perfect advice re sizing. I would recommend contacting them at their mail order department as per their website.

CJ adheres to their roots and makes classic english shoes so of course I am a big fan. I love my coniston boot. As long as lobb doesn't attempt a hostile takeover I look forward to future purchases.

The (brass? or what?) nails under the soles are wearing down. How long will they last? I ask because I topied the front sole and now that part will last a long time (it will definitely outlast the heel).

 

I am concerned the heel will wear away over time (since it is mostly leather) and I will end up with a flat sole. But of course I will replace it before that will ever happen, I want to know how long the heel will last and is the wearing down of the nails OK?

Replace the toplift of the heel once the rubber has been eaten away, before you start eating away at the heel stack. Heel strikes will always cause the rubber dove tail to wear down much faster than the leather.

I am asking about the nails in the heel. Those seem not as easy to replace and they do get worn down as the heel surface gets worn down over tine.

It would be up to the shoe repair to decide how s/he wanted to re-attached the toplift. None of the shoe repairs I have been to try to replicate the original nail pattern.
