    Hi all, as a fellow "Boot Guy", I'd like to ask for some advice from experts.

    I am looking to purchase my first pair of derby boots to take on inclement weather conditions. I want to be able to wear them in inclement weather but also take them with me this coming winter around dec or jan traveling outdoors in southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland where I expect there to be a lot of snow and slush to walk through. I'd like the pair to be hardy and reliable that is able to take a beating for outdoor pursuits like hiking and offtrail walks, yet still look smart enough to wear to work if needed (as a medic I rarely wear suits, mostly chinos + button up shirts if I'm not in theatre).

    For this purpose I've narrowed my choices down to two boots: the Crockett and Jones Conistons in navy (last one in all of UK!) and the Northcote boots in brown. I've tried them on today at a C&J store in London today, see pics attached.

    Which would the experts here recommend for my purpose? I feel like the Conistons will be more hardwearing and tough and practical, but the Northcotes are much more sleek and elegant. Would the scotch grain of the Conistons be of significant practical benefit?

    My current humble collection of shoes only has two boots: the black and brown C&J Tetbury chukka boots, which I've found fantastic for everyday wear to work if that helps.

    :D Great to hear that! How are they holding up in bad weather etc?

    I think I am tending towards the Conistons (just look at that colour!), do you reckon the scotch grain make a real difference to ruggedness?

    Also, how does the Navy colour work into your wardrobe? Versatile enough or more restricted?

    Grain does a bit better than smooth calf in terms of all weather wearability. IMO, Zug is the ultimate, followed by Chromexcel, then grain. Shell is very weather resistant but will most likely end up looking like $#!% after a light sprinkle of rain, never mind snow and slush - so it's not even on my list for foul weather wear.

    | find navy very versatile, though My navy footwear is all of the dressy variety. I'd have no problem working in navy grain derby boots (always wanted those Conistons, in case that wasn't clear) but I don't think it would be as versatile as, say, a medium brown.

    PS - I was forgetting about my navy suede chukkas - and I wear the heck out of those casually - but my comment on comparative versatility still stands.

    Mine are holding up great. I wear them a couple of times a week. Super comfortable and I dress them up and down. Here's today,, watching football at my favorite watering hole.

    Decided to start organizing my boots for the Fall, as this is the last weekend of Summer! I started with my EG boots and was surprised at how many I actually had collected.. didn't realize how out of control it has gotten... :embar:
