    This will definitely add wear/grip to your boots when fitted.

    I think perhaps Cheaney due to how the soles are done

    My money is also on C&J given that the nail pattern matches the C&J Handgrade models that I have, and is markedly different from AS. Nice looking boot - I’ll be looking out for them next BB sale.

    It’s C&J, if the model pictured.

    Thanks gentlemen. I didn't know C&J did closed channel soles.

    This post is just flat out gorgeous

    Makes it very hard for me to consider a $170 resole for my CJ connistons.

    I looked really hard at the Conniston going in, and thought that is what I would end up with. In the end though, just couldn’t justify the extra $200, especially considering the harsh winters I face living in MN.

    They are great boots, the quality and craftsmanship is something you can feel every time you but a new pair of AS is Only 100 to 150more than a resole.
    I’m no mathematician but the value delta starts to lean towards the Sargent. Particularly since I keep hearing great things about their quality as well

    I can vouch for the quality. I've tried on Conistons and have to say the leather was nowhere near as supple as the Cambridge. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of CnJ but in this instance I think the Cambridge a better choice by far.
