I’ve had another look, and I think you’re right, they’re definitely about 1/2" thicker than your average sole.

Add another 2"-ish and I’d be as tall as the wifelet.


#1251

Hope they’re as good as Hunters used to be…
I’ve moved on to Skellerup Quattros - cheaper, comfier, better sole and more solid.


#1252

I’ve worn them daily since I got them. Birding and walking the dogs over wet/rough ground and I’m happy with them so far.


#1253

They’re definitely NOT what they were. However, they are still better than many of the competition.


#1254

Bog standard Loakes.

Look brown in the gloomy office light.

Are actually black.

Arguably…
My last pair (Royal Scot) lasted just over a year - same as Muckboots did.
Gumleaf did quite well at a year and a half, as did Hoggs of Fife = both of these were around £80 (especially as the hole in the Gumleafs was caused by hot angle-grinder fragments)
L’Aigle failed at about 2.5 years and Skellerup have managed 2 so far which isn’t bad considering they were about £70 and the L’Aigles £120ish. To be fair, I did have to put £12 gel insoles in the Skellerups to make them anywhere near as comfy as the L’Aigles.

This is mainly through steep woodland, over brash, brambles etc so they have a hard life!

TBF, mine are 10 years old. But newer versions still get good reviews from people locally.


#1257

Not Hunter Originals, I guess… They’re so bendy and flimsy you’re guaranteed to fall over if someone says the word “mud”.


#1258

One of the best shoes on this thread. You can’t beat the traditional timeless styles.


#1259

Adidas Gazelles.

Timeless classic. Never tries too hard.


#1260

Nice, I like the American Long Wing. I wonder if they make them for the US market.


#1261

I have a long wing pair identical to those from Herring.
Wouldn’t be surprised if they are the same as Loake are one of Herring’s suppliers.

Cheers. I’ll give that a try.

When I started to Google “Adidas” it suggested “Yeezy”.

Uhh, no thanks. I look like enough of a cock already.
