    In my experience with the snowdon its a good hiking boot. Not waterproof if submerged but waterproof enough for a hike. FYI I've used them for hiking several days on end wearing them approx. 18 hrs a day an that was fine. When I got them I ran a bath up to the bellows tounge to test them submerged in water but that wasn't a success. Fine for hiking but not for wading. For bad weather in town I wear my Islays, for proper outdoors my Islays and for submerging (small streams, etc) my white's outdoorsmen. If you aren't wading through brooks Snowdons should be fine. repost

    The 'moustache' shape first appeared, as far as I know, on the Lotus veldt derby shoes and not their boots - the original Lotus veldt boot was actually an apron toe derby boot and their later, classic veldt boot had a straight line instead of that moustache design.

    Lotus held the patent to the veldtschoen construction method for a long time, so any boot designs with that moustache feature are later players in the game and, I think, all from after the Second World War. Lotus shoes and boots were often seen during the war as 'private purchase' footwear for officers who tended to be the only ones who could afford them.

    In later years, Tecnic shoes and boots were favoured by the military.

    The more I wear my black pair the better they fit.

    Great, thanks!

    Can you share your thought on fit? If I wear a UK9E in Crockett Jones loafers, oxford and derby, would it be reasonable I go with that size too when ordering a Snowdon?

    Heard from a few guys that they actually had to size down a half size as they claimed there's a lot of space in those boots. I'm not in a position to try them on at all and a deadline for ordering via Bodileys is beginning of December.

    Go to a store and try them on.

    Alden is not the same as C&J

    Trying them on is the safest course of action, but I wear 9.5D in Alden Barrie and 10D in Marlow. YMMV.

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone else has experienced problems with the Crockett and Jones Mail order system. I have emailed the UK branch three times over the last weeks. I would like to order something from their collection. I never received a response...

    Best regards

    Many thanks, the boot in question has 9 eyelets while regular 325 last has only 8 so I was wondering is this 325 or 365 last?

    It could be it's the variation made for Purdey. For example Frans Boone version of Coniston doesn't have the speed hooks ..

    Also, the pair in your link can easily qualify for Reject or Seconds. They got a broken stitch just above the heel area. I wouldn't purchase them. [​IMG]
