AFPOS sale is active now. Can't decide on the Polo Kudu Stows (already have the Eatons), Deerskin Bernwood, or maybe try the Nubuck Stows. 🤔
Decisions decisions. Some nice discounts relatively speaking, but I refuse to part with ÂŁ400 for a pair of boots. I like the kudu too but when standard calf models can be had for half the price I just can't justify it.

Good point. And on this matter i am appreciative of Cheaney's pricing strategy. That their kudu leather models are priced less compared to their calf leather models. To me thats fair.

I've just bought some black stows. Given that I already have espresso stows and black Burfords was this feels like an unnecessary purchase. I have literally just bought them so can still cancel. Any views appreciated.

I have a pair of black stows and it has a total of 2 wears i think, i just don't like wearing black a lot i guess. At least they were very cheap.

Cheap for Tricker's... I think you might be right though - not sure I need 2 pairs of black boots. I can't turn down the bargains, it's a sickness of sorts.

Hi folks,

Just looking at the Factory shop and came across these soles. Has anyone had experience with them? Just wondering how they wear (durability/comfort) and whether they can be resoled?

Thanks

I'm not very observant and just noticed that my Grenson and C&J boots have very strong leather pull tabs whereas all of my Tricker's boots have cloth tabs. I've not had any issues with them but they're clearly inferior. Has anyone ever found this to be a weak point with prolonged use?

AFPOS selling Polo Kudu Stows for ÂŁ300. Now it's getting very tempting...

I'd pull the trigger if they were on Ridgeway.

Leather pull tabs aren’t necessarily stronger. One snapped on a pair of Edward Green boots. The fabric ones seem very strong IME so I think you’ll be fine with the boots

To be honest I rarely use pull tabs. Even on Chelsea boots like my RM Williams. I wouldn’t worry about it. Plus my leather Crockett and Jones ones feel far more delicate (but look far more stylish).
