I need a good travel boot and also something I can quickly put on to run in and out of my place in most kinds of weather. Considering a Chelsea 5 in dark brown antique nubuck (which, based on the pics I've seen, barely looks like nubuck at all). Anyone have experience sizing the 335 in a Chelsea? My Lindricks are an 8.5 which I gather are an 8 UK. They are a bit roomy but work well. I'm thinking 7.5 UK is the way to go here. Found a similar recommendation on here from about a year back but thought I'd check in and see if anyone had any thoughts. TIA.
I went with US10 on suede Chelsea 5s from Barneys as compared to 10.5US in Lindrick and most other Barney's C&Js.
As with you, the Linkdricks are roomy but work well, especially with thick socks.
The Chelseas were borderline too snug when I first got them but they've broken in and I only wear them with thin socks.
I don't think I'd want to wear them for a day of traveling.post #12094 of 128569/19/16 at 6:21pmpost #12095 of 128569/19/16 at 7:15pmpost #12096 of 128569/20/16 at 3:25amBrecon today, they are brand new but where is that scratch coming from? I will just blame my wife 😊
Not sure how much I like them overall. The fit is great and they will make an overall good walking boot during the bad weather periods I suppose. However they just look so huge compared to my Carminas 😧post #12097 of 128569/21/16 at 7:50ampost #12098 of 128569/21/16 at 7:53am
Does anyone here know you're a big scammer at ebay? And you calling thief at this forum when you're the biggest of all? Do you want me to proof everyone that you've been rigging your Ebay sales like, forever?? You're scamming everyone with private sales and several fake accounts inflating the prices undercovered. I have more than 50 print screens of your "POKAC" sales before you turned them all into "private" sales. And always having a few Crockett & Jones for sale at ebay... are they stolen?post #12099 of 128569/21/16 at 8:32ampost #12100 of 128569/21/16 at 9:12amQuote:Originally Posted by Technica
Dear all, looking for some C&J advice if thats okay.
I am looking to purchase my first pair of derby boots to take on inclement weather conditions. I want to be able to wear them in inclement weather but also take them with me this coming winter around dec or jan traveling outdoors in southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland where I expect there to be a lot of snow and slush to walk through. I'd like the pair to be hardy and reliable that is able to take a beating for outdoor pursuits like hiking and offtrail walks, yet still look smart enough to wear to work if needed (as a medic I rarely wear suits, mostly chinos + button up shirts if I'm not in theatre).
For this purpose I've narrowed my choices down to two boots: the Conistons in navy (last one in all of UK!) and the Northcote boots in brown. I've tried them on today at a C&J store in London today, see pics attached.
Which would the C&J experts here recommend for my purpose? I feel like the Conistons will be more hardwearing and tough and practical, but the Northcotes are much more sleek and elegant. Do the scotch country grain on the Conistons confer any signficant practical benefit?
My current humble collection of shoes only has two boots: the black and brown Tetbury chukka boots, which I've found fantastic for everyday wear to work if that helps.
The grain leather does make the boots more casual than smooth leather.
IMHO, it sounds like from your intended wear with chinos, the more casual/ rounded last of the Coniston may be more appropriate- although the navy color may limit their versatility a bit. They also pair well with denim, tweeds, cords, and hardier wools. I find the NorthCote's sleeker last too pointy for chinos and denim. It works better with tailored wool trousers, and even with a suit on the wet weather days. They seem like a City boot, and I would treat them like a dress shoe for rainy days- far too elegant for hiking and outdoor pursuits, as I don't think they would look as good scratched up. Just my 2 cents but it's really down to how you will be wearing them. You can always go for the Conistons now, then save up and get the Northcote's next time as your dress boot...
Personally, I've not found the studded Dainite soles to be much better than leather on slick snow or ice. So, if you are really looking for a boot for snow/slush, you might consider the Snowden, with the added water resistant construction and commando rubber sole.

Ridgeway for snow and ice.post #12105 of 128569/21/16 at 11:59am
After last winter, I wanted to convert 2 pairs of boots from the studded Dainite soles to Ridgeway, but I have not been able to find a cobbler here in NY that carries that sole. Was surprised that B.Nelson / VIP did not. Any suggestions in the city or online welcome.
