Great shoe, shame about the mud
on 26 January 2013
These shoes are fantastic, very well made and extremely comfortable. I've read a few reviews regarding sizing, some suggest buying a half size larger, others a half size smaller, but I found they were spot on my usual shoe size of 9.5.
They were delivered in good time and before the estimated delivery date.
However, these shoes are supposed to be brand new yet were clearly returned by a previous customer. Although the shoes were in near new condition, it was clear they had been worn outside as the soles had mud and grit stuck to them and there was slight bobbling on the wool lining! I suppose I can look past this as the shoes are otherwise in great condition and were bought half price on sale, but had I bought them at full price (circa £100) I would have been livid to have received a used shoe!
All in all I would recommend this product, but I am very disappointed that Amazon let through a returned shoe that had so clearly been used outdoors in mud and not returned in pristine condition (only to flog it to me).
