    I was really impressed. Before and after photos, sorry about the quality but not around at the moment to show how good the fix is. In fact it looks really good almost like a custom made boot with identical strips around both boots that match the leather, plus new lining which they didn't need to do.

    As you can see one boot gave something a happy meal, the other wasn't as bad but they did both so they would not look odd. A+++++++++, I can't imagine many shoe companies would do that free. Maybe a good idea for a new thread? Cheers.

    The lining looks a bit rough but this was taken when I got them back and has now rounded off nicely.

    Very kind of you Bingo, thanks for the nod.

    I too, though shamelessly, encourage everyone drops by. Any PM for goods will be sorted anonymously as will any kind donations

    Thanks again Bingo :fistbump:

    @Naesuk - Congrats on your Conistons! Nice pic's.

    I also bought some Conistons this week. Strangely, I am 1.5 sizes down from my US size with these. I learned this from buying some C&J Lullworth suede saddle shoes recently which are also from the 325 last. The deep tan or butterscotch color is richer looking than any of the web photos I've seen. To me, the color is much more versatile than I expected. I have worn these with khakis, navy and olive/brown slacks and they look great with all three. I can also tell the break-in period will be minimal on these. I find that the key to comfort is to tie the laces loosely at the top to allow ankle flex. I also use a straight across lacing up to the hooks which reduces instep pressure.

    Why don't you contact Frans Boone? I believe that the brown Coniston is part of their standard stock. If they don't have your size right now they should in the near future.

    @Arnobuyens The Kingsman boots are not the color I'm looking for. [​IMG]

    @mxgreen I reached out to them with no response. I guess I'll watch the site for a restock.

    Those are the GC boots from mrporter, correct? The boots in the movie are darker, I heard they were MTO

    Correct. A look at the actual boots from the movie shows a boot that is darker than the Mr. Porter iteration, but still not as dark as the FB version. This version looks closer to the stock tan country grain Coniston that is widely available. [​IMG]

    Is that a Snowdon left to the Coniston on the photo?

    The other day I got my Islays back from C&J after fixing a sky hook, and they arrived in perfect condition but without the dust bags I sent them in... Today I had the dust bags in my mailbox, without even asking for them. Probably the lady I sent the boots to realized that they were left there. Either that or someone at C&J reads this thread. :)

    Anyway, great customer service.

    Just broke down and bought the dark brown Coniston from Frans Boone. Was too good a deal to pass up.

    I like those FB dark brown Connistons but already own a pair of Islays in the same color. What other colors are the Connistons available in?

    I thought he's sold out with the sizes by now?
