They are that lovely vintage red brown colour so I just use Colonill burgundy crème on them to enhance the red.

Congrats on the Islays. I've been wearing mine several days a week since purchase before Xmas. Most of my shoes & boots are worn once a week at most but I'm still firmly in the honeymoon stage. We've had a lot of rain and snow in the last month so the dainite sole has been a joy.

Leave it with me, it will be difficult, but will try.

I"m wondering if I should opt for the Harvard in its place....

I imagine your Harvards are light in weight?  Is the sizing true, considering it is unlined? A review of them would be very helpful to myself and, I suspect, other forumites. 
The unlined are much lighter than the double leather lined version .. Of which I also own. Sizing is the same, I am 9.5D US and take 8.5E UK. Very slight heal slip as they are brand new, I expect the soles to loosen up with wear. I put then up against my unlined Van lasted Penny and the length is the same. These are slightly narrower in the forefoot toe box. Comfortable as heck right out of the box. Will be sporting these here today as it's going to be 76. Ahh

i believe whilst a little pricey for just one program, the link to a vpn (uk ip address) would work

Hello

My C&J oxfords need a resole. They have leather soles now but I would rather have dainite ones after the resole.

However, my cobbler says that this is not possible, or that this is at least bad for the shoes. He says that if you want dainite soles on shoes that you've bought with leather ones, you should resole the shoes to dainite ones before the first wear..

Is any of this true or can I ask for dainite soles if I hand them in for a resole?

Thx!

Ignore his advice...

That's bollocks. I recently had a pair of EG boots resoled with dainite from single leather, and it worked out extremely well even though I got away with the storm welt at the same time. But I think it would no doubt be better to have it done at a C&J factory than at your cobbler.

 

Before:

 

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.||B2||T0JKX0lEPTVjYTFhYjFlYTI1YTAyNTQwNTFmODA0Yzg5NzYzNjA1MjBkMTc5NTM2YjQ3fHxTRUxMRVJfTkFNRT1tYWRvbm5hJHx8T1JJR0lOQUxfRUJBWV9RVUFMSVRZX1NDT1JFPTR8fENSRUFUSU9OX0RBVEU9OS8yNS8xMyAxMTowNiBQTQ==

 

After:

 Leather to Dainite is perfectly straightforward - something I've had done twice with AS brogues. I've also had commando-soled shoes swapped to double leather.

They are the C&J Islay boot, never knew Purdey did the same boot? I know Purdey have boots made by C&J but I have never seen these boot in their shop!

Another interesting point is that after wearing them for over seven hours now they are very comfortable and to my surprise these boots have a slight arch support which is quite comfortable.
Sone of my EG shoes and Galway boots have it but the last pair of Galway boots I bought on the 64 last does not have this!The only other shoes that have it are my JL Prestige and St Crispin.

I am glad C&J have done this on the Islay boot because the Skye 2 I had and the Holland and Holland boot I have did not have the support, unless this was a special order I do not know.

Anyway I am satisfied with these.
