You gotta love this commercial model, for on line retailers;  Customers and forums do most of  the selling for them, with skilled photo ops like Roger's who needs to advertise their product!... and just call up the retailer so they can take your money.. 

Biz op right there gents

Well in that case... I need some cxl jumpers in my life

My CXL AE Bayfields served this purpose for many years:

I still think CXL is nearly unbeatable as a choice for the uppers - and the Carmina Jumpers that have replaced them are of that material:

But if you happen to luck into a pair of genuine Heather Gorse (Zug!) Veldtshoens, that's probably the cat's pyjamas right there.

Yes they are. These are 12s and I usually wear 11.5 s. I will need to wear thick socks or use inner soles...

could you post some pictures of you wearing them, to see how they look in the wild?
