BOOTS

We've finally got our bike boots/engineers boots (call them what you will) in stock. We’ve been working on them for quite a while, and did at one time enquire about buying them in wholesale (something we rarely do with any of our products). We couldn’t get exactly what we wanted, so we persevered and now we’ve got them just right and as near to the original vintage pair we copied as we can get, including the ‘right-role’ buckles and the soles.

They're in excellent quality leather in both brown and black. They’re manufactured here in the UK, and we're really pleased to have them made with the famous Dainite soles. Now, you may not have heard of them, but Dainite products have been produced by the Harboro Rubber Company since 1894. The soles we use on our boots were introduced in 1910 and are called the Dainite Studded Sole. They’re hardwearing and provide comfort and grip in all conditions.

In a world of ever increasing change it’s important to us to be doing our bit in keeping original products and companies still out there.  Our men’s footwear is from two different UK companies, one has been manufacturing since 1881 and the other since 1906, and our ladies knitwear and men’s shirts are also made in the UK by long established companies.
