As I understood it's the Veldtschoen construction, connoting it's waterproof. But would like to hear a first hand thoughts.


I need a hardcore winter boot, more than a fancy looking and I have a feeling Coniston is more of a autumn and early winter type of boot.


This photo made me fall in love for Snowdon.



In my experience with the snowdon its a good hiking boot. Not waterproof if submerged but waterproof enough for a hike.

FYI
I've used them for hiking several days on end wearing them approx. 18 hrs a day an that was fine.
When I got them I ran a bath up to the bellows tounge to test them submerged in water but that wasn't a success.

Fine for hiking but not for wading.

For bad weather in town I wear my Islays, for proper outdoors my Islays and for submerging (small streams, etc) my white's outdoorsmen. If you aren't wading through brooks Snowdons should be fine.

The military influenced shape of the vamp, which has the 'moustache' shape made these boots handsome in my book. The lines are clean&simple and I find a lot of places where I can rest my eye ..


They somehow remind me of a much expensive EG Galway but are reasonably priced at 475 GBP and are cheaper more than double. The Commando sole looks really solid too. I feel they will give me a lot of fun this winter in a snowy covered field.



 

The 'moustache' shape first appeared, as far as I know, on the Lotus veldt derby shoes and not their boots - the original Lotus veldt boot was actually an apron toe derby boot and their later, classic veldt boot had a straight line instead of that moustache design.

Lotus held the patent to the veldtschoen construction method for a long time, so any boot designs with that moustache feature are later players in the game and, I think, all from after the Second World War. Lotus shoes and boots were often seen during the war as 'private purchase' footwear for officers who tended to be the only ones who could afford them.

In later years, Tecnic shoes and boots were favoured by the military.

Great, thanks!

Can you share your thought on fit? If I wear a UK9E in Crockett Jones loafers, oxford and derby, would it be reasonable I go with that size too when ordering a Snowdon?

Heard from a few guys that they actually had to size down a half size as they claimed there's a lot of space in those boots. I'm not in a position to try them on at all and a deadline for ordering via Bodileys is beginning of December.

I can't remember for certain and I'm away so can't check the size of mine...but I don't think I sized down in them...

 

i realize this is not super helpful...

Trying them on is the safest course of action, but I wear 9.5D in Alden Barrie and 10D in Marlow. YMMV.
