Dr. Martens Airwair Classic 1461 PW (Plain Welt) Black Smooth Leather Shoes UK 8

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The size 8 fitted fine (as I expected), but be aware that there is a fair bit of stretching in the breaking-in period. I didn't experience any discomfort in breaking these in, but as I have narrow feet, I'm hoping there won't be too much more stretching width-wise. Despite many negative reviews here on Amazon, these seem absolutely fine. They polish up brilliantly with Parade Gloss polish, and seem to be wearing well after a few weeks. I shall probably buy again in future, and the seller was very prompt and courteous in replying when I enquired as to the precise item code.
Recommend the shoes and the seller.

A better retro look than the later versions, and a snip at this price! As with all cycling apparel the fit is just a little snug.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sizing just wrong, 21 Nov 2013
These gloves seemed ok quality-wise for the price.
I take medium sized gloves - always have - but the medium size were miles too small in pretty much every aspect. Fingers miles too short (and very tight).
I returned them and eventually bought Sealskinz gloves, which are superb.

3.0 out of 5 stars Recommended., 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really good read in terms of content. It does exactly what it says on the cover. I must confess to feeling a twinge of pity towards the henpecked husbands at whom the book seems to aim itself.

So why only three stars? Well, it's very obviously self-published and the general level of English in terms both of grammar and of spelling is pretty poor. I expect more from a book if someone is expecting me to buy it. It's a shame. I've got the author's book on turbo-training which is similarly superb (in terms of content).

Don't let this put you off buying what might possibly be the catalyst that gets you out on your bike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job and tastes good., 29 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a newcomer to electrolyte sports drinks and chose this because of its zero sugar and zero calorie claims. I'm sure it does the job, and found the berry flavour is quite palatable. I only use it during sweat-fest turbo sessions, but will probably try using it for outside rides in summer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value!, 29 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good quality cap. It's fairly lightweight, so probably not a four-season choice, but well-made, comfortable and it looks great.
I normally take a 58/59 in hats and the Jaxon large size fits very well. I recently lost my Jaxon Newsboy and was so bereft without it I replaced it within a couple of days. This seller provided a prompt service too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic at the price!, 8 Feb 2013
What a great-looking watch, and an absolute steal at less than 12 pounds.
Highly recommended.
The only slight negative is that it's not the easiest watch-face to read in certain light. At the price though, well worth five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars essential reading for the potential self-publisher., 6 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wealthy Author (Paperback)
This book, in tandem with Aaron Shepherd's 'POD for profit' gave me all the information I needed about the publishing business and selling self-published books.

It also gives really good tips on marketing and making money from book spin-offs.

If you're thinking seriously about self-publishing a book, you need to read this one first. Highly recommended.

This book tells you everything you need to know about self-publishing in a no-nonsense, easy-to-read style. It was my main resource when I self-published and I'd recommend it highly to anyone new to the self-publishing business.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works., 6 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works fine, and cheaper than the nasty one I bought from a popular High St electronics retail chain (which simply didnt work at all)
Don't waste your time with the really cheap ones. This one does exactly what it's supposed to and is robust enough to last a while.
