Crockett & Jones Islay boots

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, I saw them Skyfall. I think they are very nice looking. However, $750 is steep. I have never had a pair of wingtip boots and I have a few questions:

1. How long does it take them to break in - as far as width, how do they run, normal or narrow?

2. Can you actually wear them outdoors in a harsh environment ?

3. Are they actually worth the cash?

4. Any reasonable alternatives?

How would you answer the question "how long is a piece of string?".

I apologize. Do they tend to run in a normal width?

I have no experience with the 365 last but it seems they're a generous fit.

Only you can determine whether they're worth the price, but consider you could get a pair of cordovan Alden boots for about
the price of the calf Islays.

I have been looking at the Allen Edmonds Long Branch as an alternative.
