I have one pair with the legendary boot trees, and one without. I empathize with anyone that struggles to get a regular GG tree properly in their boots... frown.gif

My Wigmores have the nice trees. Rothchild today:

I should have a pair of Walktons waiting for me at home today and a pair of Oakhams soon enough.

As usual, Nick is the best.

I have two pair of boot trees that i luckily got before B-E stopped selling them.

FYI I've been quoted 1k GBP for tall bespoke 3 piece shoe trees from a new tree maker. Their regular tree maker only does trees up to ankle height.

I think he is talking about tall boot trees, these would be trees to fill equestrian boots. They should be expensive but 1k GBP is indeed a steep price I can only imagine how much were actual boots.

Mine are not the really tall equestrian boots but a little taller than regular boot height. The tree price is comparable to JLSJ. The JLSJ long boot trees, presumably for the equestrian boot, is 1700+ GBP. eek.gif

Hi all, I am hoping to get some advices. I bought the Canterbury a little over a month ago from Leatherfoot in Toronto. I just realized that the seam in my left boot shaft is torn. It looks like the seam is just to connect the lining. However, I am wondering if this will be a problem down the road. Am I worrying too much or should I take it back to the store or to a cobbler?

Right boot

If that happened to my boot they would be en route to G&G for repair.

Have not tried the Topy / toe tap combo as I find the Topy more or less solves the toe roll problem so long as you put them on straight away.

I use the cobbler in College Park. His Topy installations are perfect and same day service as well.

Thanks. I am going to take them back to the stores and see if they can deal with G&G for me.

Surprising to see that in a pair of G&Gs. That said, no QC process is perfect.
