Hmm, Swedes designing a non-weather resistant pair of boots? Strange. Does this mean the leather is damaged by water?I have some Dovers in Chestnut Utah and the leather is incredible. Super soft and comfortable. Not weather resistant though.
I had to Google Utah leather.I must try this Utah leather for myself!
Thanks for bring these folks to my attention, I'd never heard of them. They make some classically handsome footwear!Anyone here has bought their shoes? They don't look stylish but look sturdy nonetheless.
Lof & Tung vs Carlos Santos. L&T's sole sticks out a little too much for my taste.
The leather just kind of sucks up moisture. It’s apparent when polishing the shoes too...it just sucks up the cream polish. Country calf is a much more weather resistant grain. Zug would probably be one of the best.Hmm, Swedes designing a non-weather resistant pair of boots? Strange. Does this mean the leather is damaged by water?
I think I'd get a pair of CS Jodhpurs for now.
Agreed. Except size 9 was sold out by the time the email notice arrived.Utah leather is dreamy stuff. My Utah / suede Galways are just ridiculously comfortable. If I could remotely rationalize another pair of brown derby boots, I'd grab these in a heartbeat. A VERY compelling offering for the money, IMO.
