Chadwick 2 (358 last) handgrade on the left 

Highbury (348 last) main collection in the middle

Malton (360 last) main collection on the right

 

All 7.5E sizing.

 

Chadwick 2 and Highbury were an easier fit, possibly to do with being a monk and derby shoe with 3 laces high on the instep. 

Malton was somewhat a bit more difficult to fit into being an oxford, with lacing making it quite tight around the instep section.

Been after a pair of Snowdon for years and finally found these on Friday, just in time for the first snow fall of winter round these parts.

About four days late to the shoe tree discussion a few pages back, but seeing all the recommendations for woodlore epics, I thought I'd put in my .02. I always use Sir Beecs, which are made in the same design as the woodlores, but are a) available by the half size (rather than S/M/L/XL) and b) cheaper. The benefit of "a" cannot be understated. They're not widely available, but you can get them at shoecare-shop.eu (there's also a UK site).

On a recently bought, but not yet worn, pair of Skye 2 in brown shell I have noticed that on one boot in the section just above the brogued toe area and below the laces on the forefoot is a small patch of the cordovan that is quite rough/dry and unlike the rest of the smooth shell. As I brush it it becomes worse, almost like there is no laquer on this section. I am trying it now with a small amount of cordovan cream after a rubbing with a deer bone which seems to be helping. I don't want to send them back if I can help it as I'm out of the U.K. and bought direct from C&J so wondered if this will be a problem long term?

Pictures could help? Some shell is just drier than others no matter how much you condition it. But not sure what we're looking at without a visual.

Nice boots Cleav!

 

Were they from the factory?  Do they have a decent selection of boots at the moment?

Thanks man

In all the time I've been going I have to say it is the first time I've seen a pair of Snowdon. Then, like a glass slipper...

Boots in general? Yes, Tetbury, suede Chukkas and Miltons some Northcotes surprisingly too

Lucky bugger.  I'm starting to think you have a contact on the inside that can make you "Subs" to order!

 

Enjoy :)

Just messing.

 

I'd be there every week if I lived a bit closer.

So I got the BB dark brown suede boots. I really like them. First good pair of suede footwear I've owned. Now for maintenance, what's better, brass suede brush? Or a different type of suede brush?

I have the same boots and get quite a bit of wear out of them, particularly in inclement weather. I use a nylon bristle brush with all of my suede shoes and that has served me well for years. That said, I've never tried a brass brush and it may be equal or better.
