In our quest to make the ultimate cruelty-free shoes we have produced this range which incorporates our own brand of Airseal cushioned soles.
These extra thick, deep tread, translucent soles provide excellent shock absorption and insulation. They are stitched and heat welded onto a Goodyear welt for strength and durability and take little 'breaking in'. As well as breathable and water resistant uppers the very finest non-leather components have been selected to construct this footwear. Made in England.
As with all our Airseal footwear these boots are really hard-wearing. Like our 10 Eye Boot but with a higher leg. With 'bellows' tongue to increase water resistance. Air-seal Cushioned soles for comfort. Internal welt stitching and welded on soles for strength. Highest quality Vegetan Micro-microfibre uppers that wear and age exceptionally well, and look and feel like supple leather. The steel toes make the boots extra tough. (if you need tested safety footwear see style 185 Airseal Safety Boot Mk 2 in the 'Hiking Boots / Safety Boots' section). We have sold loads of these boots over the years. The only trouble with this style is that we make them too well and have to wait a long time for repeat orders!
Use our black polish to improve water resistance and cover up any scuffs. Do not use solvent based shoe-care as this can affect the surface of material.
Made in one of England's oldest shoe-making factories, established in 1881.
As a note the size 13 comes with the Street Sole not the Regular Sole.
Made in UK
This style runs large.
Please bear in mind when ordering this Airseal footwear that the sizing runs large. eg. If you are a small size 8 you may wish to drop down to a size 7 or if you are a regular/large size 8 then you may wish to try the size 8 with insoles.
We try to give the best advice about sizing. Please remember sizes vary from style to style and brand to brand. The shape of the shoe can affect the fit as well as the length and width. If replacing a style with a newer version, remember shoes can stretch and mould and become looser over time. A new version of the same shoe can feel tighter and quite different to the old friends you have come to love. Shoes mould to the shape of your feet, more in the width than the length. If they are slightly snug in the width then they may give a little and become more comfortable. If the shoes or boots are tight lengthways then they are likely too small and you need to try the next size up.
Lastly, remember that insoles can REALLY make a difference when trying to get the right fit. Ours are quite thick but thinner ones are also available. In addition to making footwear more comfortable insoles can also help shoes and boots last longer.
