This fall, I acquired a pair of C&J "Derwent" boots from France (UK10.5). Dark brown, wonderfully soft leather derby boots with a fairly elongated toe and Dainite soles. I had planned to wear these on rainy or snowy days, but the non-storm welt, and soft, supple (and relatively thin) leather don't seem rugged enough. The Derwent seems to have been primarily sold in France, rather than US or UK. I could not find much info. online so I was wondering if anyone has any experience with or knows anything else about this model. Thanks.
