Nope...I thought they were bowling shoes at first. I'm a trainer man too, and I'll be sticking to the usual suspects in the gym and on the street...

Wore my Islays as well today. C&J makes some really beautiful models, but I'm afraid those trainers are not one of them.

C&J MTO resoleable trainers, apparently. Circa £600 and all colours available...

I was having an Islay day, myself...

Are those vintage Brummie? can't find them online anywhere. Have seen old Aldens that were quite similar.

Long time lurker, first time poster...Thanks to all posters on SF. I've learned so much about proper fashion and style. Here are a pair of C&J Navy Coniston boots I picked up at a Barneys sale a few months ago...I lucked out for sure. They only had one pair, my size. Regulaly $715 on sale for $275 and I pounced...I live in South Florida but I'll make them work! Trousers are Cobalt chinos from SPOKE in London.

Nah, mate.

 

Can be ordered right now and were clearly new when handled. Nice leather on them, too.

 

Can't imagine negotiating the free weights area in my local gym wearing them, though...I'm known for my taste in footwear down there too, but those would be pushing my trainer horizons an eyelet too far...

So yesterday, my RL C&J cordovan lindericks came out, but by the end of the day the bottom of the vamp was rubbing on my third toe. It rubbed a few layers of skin off and was quite painful. Is there anything that can be done to fix this? It appears that the crease has formed right on top of that area, and will rub on that toe.

I hear cordovan takes a bit longer to break in but apparently when it does its the softest thing ever. From what you said I think it probably will be OK but I'll let the others speak on that.

Lol, I wear my CJ cord tassels and Alden derbies for squats. Nice stable heel. I do get looks and comments, mostly amused : )

I find deadlifting in vintage WW2 veldtschoen boots to work wonders for engaging all of the posterior chain. Plus you've no risk of wet feet if the gym suddenly floods. Up to ankle height, anyway...

veldts only for outdoor lifting, u know that.
Loafers for indoor
