Hi! I'm Diego and this is my first post.
One year ago I bought one pair of CJ Pembroke in tan scotch grain, UK 11. 10,5 was too tight( I'm usually wear 10,5 in CJ Hallam, CJ Norwich, Church´s Consul,Church´s Chetwynd brogue, Cheaney Arthur III, CJ Tetbury, Carmina oxford cordovan 762 forest,)
I live in Birmingham, rainy place but the way.
This shoes are really comfy,the Danite sole is fantastic in every weather, Usually walk all day long because my profession, some times wear suits same time trousers and blazers but always shirt and tie.
Then I put on test this shoes.
Weather response: 10/10
Sole: Danite.Highly recommends use this sole
Style: 7/10 for some people could be bulky shoes, but keep in mind is a country style. It's ok for trousers, but not for suits ( it's my view), for tweed or blazers are excellent.
Care: easy to care compare with others shoes, and the leather is really good. ( Care advice: Saphir renovateur, Saphir cream and wax, shoe trees).
I confess, initially bought this shoes with zero enthusiasm, and after long talk with the salesman of CJ store, but now I'm happy with this shoes and still looks great.I recommend strongly buy it,of course, if you need a really good pair of country brogues for any occasion.
