The boots for me, but go back 30 years to buy them!
9 January 2017
These boots are very comfy and will last a few years. They are not the same very hard wearing boots of my teenage years in the early 1980"s, when they were made in England. In those days, they would last 10 years of use in the workplace. Now, you get 3 or 4 years of wear out of them. These are obviously made abroad and whilst they look similar to the boots of my youth, they never reach that level of comfort and they do feel of less quality, the leathher is less supple, the soles are less hard wearing and wear out and split far sooner than the boots of my earlier working years almost 30 years ago. However, I still love these boots and would not choose any other brand, even if the quality has dropped when the manufacturing left our shores. I have to compare these boots with the current competition (I have tried Magnums and other brands & hate them all) so I would give them 5, but I cannot give a product that score, knowing that it is just a pale imitation of what it used to be, so it gets a 4.
