Leather care - to keep your leather boots or ankle boots looking their best, polish them regularly. Not only will this keep them looking new but it will also protect them against water and scuffing.
What a shame!
Extremely disappointed with this boot (can not return due to already wanting to test wear them out). I own the brown colour version as well which is a million times better (extremely good quality leather and structure). This black version is a very cheap thin black leather, to the point it just flops down when left standing on its own - the brown does not do this) and I dislike the grey reptile pattern on the back of the boot however this is not apparent on the photos. This can look untidy/scruffy when a bit of mud gets stuck between the texture. Quite annoyed because I would assume that at least two colour versions of this boot should at least come from the same leather! This one just looks cheap and certainly should not be priced so expensive. I was hoping for a black almost shiny thick leather like the brown ones but in black, these boots however have no slight sheen to them like it appears on their photos.
When I first got my boots, this being my third pair I went through a range of emotions: nervous, excited then scared. This is a pricey boot, they're well made and worth their price, but pricey nonetheless. I first put them on and my heart sank. They did not fit around my calf. I was gutted, and I sent an email looking for clarification. I was assured that after a while the leather would stretch and all would be well. So I wore them around and eventually the leather did stretch. I could wear it with my tights, jeans even tuck in my work pants should it be required (tapered legs nothing too bulky). They are beautiful boots. They wear well and look classic with just about anything. My only issue was that the bottom was far too slippery but a simple trip to the cobbler fixed that. Side note - as this is my 3rd pair, I've had this issue with all the boots and the cobblers have been able to fix that. They've made mention at how well crafted the boots are, so to me that's an indication on the quality. If you aren't sure, I do suggest talking with the CS group. I ordered my size based on their recommendations and other than the first issue with it not fitting (but them correctly assuring me that the leather would stretch) they are a perfect fit for me. Love these boots and wear them just about everyday on my commute and at work.
So happy to have found high quality, fashionable boots that fit perfectly! The leather is supple and the boot is comfortable (walking and standing). The calf confirms to my slender leg and looks amazing - just what I have been looking for over 2+ years
All round excellence. Great customer service in store The boots fit as they should !
Gorgeous, very well fitting boots
These look amazing over skinny jeans. I wish I'd gone for the 34cm now as the 36 are just slightly too loose to wear with tights, but to be honest these look better with jeans (and I've treated myself to the Avocet to wear with tights!). The leather smells just like new school shoes of old and the quality rumble as you undo the zip speaks volumes. I love the panel at the back of the boot which gives it that edge. Slightly baggy on the front calf just above the ankle on the slimmer calf sizes, which I suspect could be sorted with a little more thought to the shape of a slimmer leg - guessing the smaller the calf size, the worse this design fault would be, so in a way I'm glad I've stuck with the 36cm. I absolutely love the heel height too - just that bit higher than some riding style boots. Well done Duo!
