I have some Dovers in Chestnut Utah and the leather is incredible. Super soft and comfortable. Not weather resistant though.
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.

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.

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.


Thanks for bring these folks to my attention, I'd never heard of them. They make some classically handsome footwear!

Great looking boots but I agree that the welt could be trimmed a little closer and I'd have preferred them without the storm welt, even if it meant sacrificing a little weather resistance.

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.

Agreed. Except size 9 was sold out by the time the email notice arrived.

Not that I was tempted.:D

Now that this is sold out do you recommend a similar pair of boots from another brand?

I'm quite tempted by these grain Chelseas as a versatile casual option. It could likewise benefit from a more trim outsole, but that really doesn't trouble me much on a casual boot.
