    I don't think we can get into politics on these pages but suffice to say the UK public were tricked into voting yes to the EEC in 1975 . Now despite saying they want to leave what insidiously became a Union, parliament have other ideas . .

    Black ones don’t look any less plasticky than oxblood ones. I have both. And a pair of Clark’s desert boots as well. Had em about 5 years ( desert boots I mean) so comfy.
    Use monkey boots for work.

    That's because they were too busy dancing to northern soul or dressing up like Bay City Rollers for football to pay close attention. Anyway, let's discuss Brexit only insofar as it affects monkey boots.

    Mine took ages to break-in. They shaved the skin off my toe-knuckles (or whatever they're called) and the back of my ankles. They're comfy as can be now.
    Don't know whether I'd go through that again though.

    Monkey boots run a bit small, always size up if possible.

    Still, they are cheap boots, can't say mine ever hurt but im used to wearing harsh footwear

    What were these guys wearing - anything a Brit might vaguely recognise as 'mod' in 1965/66?

    They were an American band from a mid-sized town in the North-West. sonics.jpg

    What they played is described as proto-punk by some but indeed a great band . .
