The leather quality these boots is excellent and the Veltschoen is certainly quite special however the boots should be redesigned. No one will be trudging around the countryside with these boots versus a modern walking boot. The commando sole heel is far too high and stiff, causing impact on the knees and picks up too much dirt to enter the pub after a walk. The addition of speed hooks and a danite sole would greatly increase the versatility around town. Furthermore I'd recommend that tongue should be lined and i could be happy with these boots for 10 years more. Currently these are my second favour boots.
It's three years since I bought my first pair of these boots and they continue to give complete satisfaction.Although they show little wear as yet, I have now bought a second pair as insurance. They are of the same very high quality.Both pairs are beautifully made and very comfortable. The leather is soft. The soles are not heavy despite their thickness and their strength. The bellows tongue provides an extra defence against water ingress.Excellent service and an excellent product which is well worth the money.
Got a lot of compliments, on the First day already. Only downside is that the laces that come with the shoe are too short
A fine pair of boots. Not as wide as you might think. ( I am an F fitting, these are only a smidge wider). Easy to wear out of the box and the colour is superb.
Great looking boot, quality leather, comfortable right out of the box. It's not as wide as I thought it was,I actually talked to some Reddit users who have the same boot. I love the 4436 last. My most expensive leather shoe but I believe they are worth it. No buyer's remorse here.
I find these boots excellent for walking. The commando sole keeps most of the mud off the leather. Great in wet grass and very warm. I sized up half a size for these boots.
I bought my boots from the Brogue trader in Cardiff as I wanted to make certain I had the right fit especially as when your fronting up some serious money you don't want any unnecessary chafing and rubbing. I have had the boots now several weeks and am delighted with the fit, style and build quality, with care these boots will probably last me the rest of my time. I would recommend going to a stockist (Brogue trader were excellent and even gave a complimentary pair of cedar wood trees) So go ahead you will not be disappointed.
I have owned a pair of Pennine Veldtschoens for over 10 years. They are an excellent boot, support the ankle, and are waterproof. After a hike, they clean up very nicely. In my view a very handsome and classical piece of footwear.
The best pair of boots I have ever worn. Extremely comfortable even on first wearing. Everything about them is 100%. They look great!
Fast delivery via a quality courier company. The boots are obviously made to a high standard and fit well.Just need an extended period of wet weather so I can really test them out.
These boots are beautifully made and very comfortable. The leather is soft. The soles are not heavy despite their thickness and their strength. The bellows tongue provides an extra defence against water ingress. The style is understated -- part-hidden by trousers, these boots could easily be mistaken for shoes. They are available in the broader G fitting, too. Cheaney and Sons were very helpful in exchanging a previous pair of a different style which I found too tight. Excellent service and an excellent product which is well worth the money.
