post #12106 of 12860

Hadn't thought about ridgeway.

 

The absolute best sole I have ever worn in the snow and ice is my commando-style Dr Martens sole, of this style;

 

 

I think the amazing grip comes from a combination of the cleat shape AND the soft rubber/PU compound.

 

This is why I hanker for a commando soled boot for the ice, but my gut feel it that true commando rubber is much harder and may not grip as well as the Dr Marten sole.

I don't know of any, but if I do send in my shoes to C&J my hope is to have all the Dainite removed and have either Ridgeway or leather installed as a replacement.

 

Does C&J still do this? 

 

If anyone knows where to have that done I am all ears as well.

I'm looking for some suede Monk Straps for the fall!  Any suggestions on the C&J or anything in the classifieds?  I usually wear Alden shoes.  Wondering about fit.

These are still available brand new, but only in very limited sizes but the price is very good:

Both are in the C&J handgrade range, but in an older 337 last.  Others may comment how that fit relative to the newer 358 last.

I couldn't remember in which C&J thread someone asked the question, but someone wanted to know how much it cost to ship back my 8E Pembrokes to London.

 

I priced it with UPS and they said it would be "in the three digits" due to the lack of "ground shipping" internationally with them (they would basically have to do overnight air).  Went to USPS and it cost ~$60.  Pricey, but obviously well worth the $60 to prevent myself from having ~$1500-1600 worth of shoes that are too big!

Thank you for that information. $60 is not bad at all compared to the other carriers I looked at. Totally worth finding the right size.

I have both brands with EG being more represented in my rotation. CJ is an awesome shoe by any metric the value of the main line is really unmatched especially considering brexit. Well done sir.

Yes, the price/value ratio with CJ is probably the best of all Northampton manufacturers, IMO .. Especially if bought at their Factory Shop ..
