    its probably sanders or another at a similar level. i know crocket and jones make RTW for some of the bespoke makers but the price of the clarks would suggest it wasnít them.

    Mine arrived and are far too small in my usual size, so I have ordered the next whole size up, as unfortunately they don't have half sizes. If those are too small, back to the drawing board... In the meantime another week of cold feet!

    I haven't owned a pair, from NPS, I only have Loakes, Trickers and had a pair of Sanders in the past.

    I visited the NPS Solovair factory shop though, some good looking NPS shoes there I thought.

    Just threw in G&G for comprehensiveness rather than likelihood although I forgot Alfred Sargent.

    Spoke too soon - just had a email from Clarks to say my Craftmaster order has been cancelled due to stock availability. Oh well, looking on the bright side, it's saved me £150!

    Just received a new pair of Timberland boots from their sale,

    https://www.timberland.co.uk/shop/en...1qxid28#hero=0

    I have Timberland classic boots which are about 20years old and excellent quality was worried that these new boots would be poor in comparison but they are fantasticly made (Vietnam). Primaloft lined and vibram sole.

    Will test them out later with the dog, came in at just over £100 including delivery if you use the 2 code discount glitch if it still works,

    WELCOME10 then WELCOME. was giving double discount last week.

    Yeah - they seem to do the craftmaster range once a year so I'll keep my eye out for this year's to arrive in the outlet...

    Craftmasters also pop up from time to time on eBay. I wonder if they're Barker's.

    There are three waves (so far) and they are all different so it could be that each wave could be a different company...

    Based on my experience with the craft master - might be worth a shout?

    Looks like the double discount glitch is still live! Going to order some Chelsea boots from the sale tomorrow. Cheers for the tip!

    Good deal on what appear to be Cheaney Tweed R? £149. Iím never sure about TK Maxx stock though...these should be £375, but arenít shown as discounted. Is that because TK Maxx never sold them at rrp so canít advertise a discount, or is it that these are seconds or some inferior product, and not the real Tweeds? Is it it as good a deal as it appears to be?

    Took a punt after seeing your post.Thought being I could always take them back


    Just arrived today,plain unbranded (but decent quality) dark blue box,came without shoe bags but include the shoe tags/leaflet inside.As its TK Maxx,wasn't expecting the original packaging.
    Size 9 and you are correct,they are Tweed R.

    Look the real deal,but not sure what would give them away as "seconds" (??)as nothing hand written inside the boots,and all appears printed as it should be.First pair of Cheaneys so not sure what to look for.Look really well made.

    For less than half price happy to do without the box and bags.

    Thanks for the heads up!!

    So I was in the Liverpool TK Maxx and they had various Trickers (none in my size) - if they are seconds, they are not marked as such and I could not detect any flaws.

    My boot selection the timberlands are constantly used on site and 3 years old ...the cheaney tiger moth boot wonderfully warm and around 5 years old time for a resole though ...the Ariat wellingtons are simple the most comfortable warm wellington boots I have ever had and I can walk for miles in them , highly recommended !....

    These Belstaff Trailmasters came today from Secret Sales. First impressions are really good and the colour will just get better as they age.

    Cheer. The floor in my picture is from Karndean which is a form of textured laminate. Really hard wearing and can take the knocks. We had it laid at a 45 degree angle with a boarder and 5mm darker bead between the slats. Itís suppose to replicate a deck on a ship. Really please with how it came out and weíve had slot of positive comments.

    It took three days across the hall, WC and kitchen to put down in a new build property.

    I've been wearing grenson boots over the winter and admittedly walk a lot around London travelling to work etc, but the soles of them have gone from chunky knobbly to totally smooth.

    They are still looking great in terms of the leather etc but they are now like slicks in the wet and have cause me to fall twice on wet pavements.

    I could get them resoled at Grenson but it would cost close to what I paid for them in the first place!

    What are the alternatives like in this regard?

    It's winter boot time

    Just bagged a pair of commando soled Trickers Wetherby boots at Gloucester Quays Outlet for £118.
    Last pair in the shop & handily - in my size (7).



    I think the £427 list price may be a tad optimistic - but happy with the deal I got.

    Ideal timing as my old comfy walking boots are about to give up.

    How is the sizing with the Belstaff boots, Iíve read you should go one size up? Secret Sales have a 30% discount in their Outlet at the moment with EXTRA30 code.

  32. #732
    Whilst on the subject of sizing, can any owners of Wolverine Apprentice boots give their opinion of sizing? Iím a 10 normally and some reviews say theyíre spot on and some say go for a 9 or 9.5.
    They are going for £71 on footway.

    I'd buy a couple of sizes that you think you might be then send the ones back that don't fit, I always do this when buying footwear online
