A couple of models got me interested.
I have not heard much about Sanders, and I have not seen them in New York.
Any experience, recommendations, etc.?
I've owned a pair of Sanders wholecuts for a little while. They are extremely comfortable, and their Diplomat line is very well put together. The Goodyear welted sole means that they make a very good investment for the future.
My wholecuts are up for sale currently: http://www.styleforum.net/t/343333/for-sale-sanders-paris-oxford-wholecut-style-shoes-size-9f-last-ken-black-195
Just to add my 2c worth.
Was looking for a wider Chelsea boot and decided to give the Sanders Thirsk a go. Now its been a while since I last wore boots of this style, and while I find them an absolute pain in the butt to put them on and take them off, I can say that I am happy both with the look, as well as the very high level of comfort. Even on first wear, didnt need to break them in at all.
