Pembroke Trolley in Natural Hevea by T&G Woodware Ltd
Pembroke Trolley in Natural Hevea by T&G Woodware Ltd
This supposedly assembled Pembroke Trolley in Natural Hevea, bought from Colanders through Amazon for 375, was in fact flat-packed.

However, due to the materials used, they are very easy to keep clean.
When buying boots, I normally choose UK size 7.5 if possible, in this instance I chose the UK 7 (no half sizes were available) and they are comfortable when worn with thick socks.

My first two runs were just 6km in sub-zero conditions through German forest tracks and on frosty footpaths; I was very impressed. No muscle or joint aches and no sign of any blisters (I have never run without socks before). Don't worry about your feet getting cold and wet in these shoes, if you keep going your body warmth… Read more
