Thank you for your review: It's good to know what to expect from the Sestriere soles as I have a couple of boots from Rider Boot Co. with the same sole, even though my Chelsea uses a leather heel instead of the rubber one.Rider Boot Co. (by Cortina) - Jackson hobo boot
Been using this as a beater boot and I've been mostly impressed.
The fit was a bit tricky to nail down, so I had to use insoles, but overall the leather has aged nicely, and I like the design (reminds me a bit of AE's Bleecker Street).
Only complaint is the "Sestriere" Italian made rubber outsoles, which seems to have worn off quicker than I had expected.

My issue with the fit is mainly due to sizing on this last (97), it seems to be roomy in the heel, long and narrow at the toes.Thank you for your review: It's good to know what to expect from the Sestriere soles as I have a couple of boots from Rider Boot Co. with the same sole, even though my Chelsea uses a leather heel instead of the rubber one.
The fit issue you mentioned is related to a high instep? I own other Cortina shoes (Romano Martegani) with this problem, that I had to solve with insoles.
Don’t fear the neighbours..Carmina tarnsjo fur lined derby boots with Momotaro GTB. These started off as tan, over the years I've used quite a bit medium & dark brown along with mahogany and burgundy polish. Starting to see some of the depth that has created.
Neighbour came out when I was taking these and I got self conscious so stopped. LolView attachment 1487986View attachment 1487987
