....and I was hoping to say "in with the blue" today but DHL charged me 18% duty on top of the taxes and service charges when UK made and sourced shoes/boots to Canada are still duty free as they were under the CETA agreement....so refused delivery until they sort out the paperwork....hopefully : (


...make that Navy blue and they should look like these but on Commando not Vibram.

Be a nice pair mate I think. I’d see if local cobbler can lighten the leather mid to an antique finish, that’s what o would have done with em.

on the other hand, the magic of handcrafted shoes means that you never have the same thing every time. the between the two Bourtons, the burgundy seems shorter than the Marron, the shoe trees 9 has difficulty entering it, I don't know if it is related to the commando sole ?

I'm a bit underwhelmed at the 'lightweight' build of my new suede Bourton's. Tricker's state that: "Our lightweight version sees the removal of the through or midsole". Despite about 15 hours Googling, I can't work out what this means. With the Dainite soles, black welt, black heel stack and grey suede, I'm worried that the shoes look a bit gloomy. Perhaps lacing them with some Christmas Red Ribbon will brighten them up. :confused:

I think the soles are a swing and a miss, the whole attraction is the heft!

Has anyone else seen the Ugly Office Carpet Leather, Stow's? They are a good boot, ideal for work purposes. Multicoloured.

Such a weird feeling leather, this Olivia deer business. And forget fugly carpets, try on tracksuits for a change....

Does Saphir cream based polish work for this leather, or does it have to be beeswax or something?
Just normal cream is fine mate.
