It’s mostly aesthetic. Most Grant Stone and Viberg boots are more casually styled than the Coniston/Islay. The C&J pairs fit better in slightly dressier contexts.

Glad to see the C&J’s being used in foul weather. I have a pair of Derwent in
Wax calf with Ridgeway soles en route. So long as they actually fit I expect to use them for awful weather. Seller says they fit like a D when marked E. We shall see. I’ve suffered about 6 years in a pair that are too tight across my foot, so it will be a welcome reprieve.

Gents,
Anyone used sno seal?

Thoughts.

Thank you,
Yes, Sno Seal saved me a pair of Loake Pimlico chukka boots, as I explained here.

After that experience, I decided to apply Sno Seal to most of my calf boots, as it proved to be a good precaution against rain and puddles. Nevertheless beware, it will darken your shoes...
