Verging too much on plum and I was purely buying cos it's a colour I've never had then realised they were fuckin awful.I've had plenty of clarks, ask the missus from office, Frank Wright, lambretta, Ben sherman, hackett., pretty green.... the list goes on. Fact is they appear no different at all whether I've paid 25 quid or 100 quid. Desi boots only look good for so long due to the material. I'll only buy an expensive pair if they are half price or summat. Last year on a recommendation from this site I bought some veras. Really liked em but they were very poor. Never had a pair of boots last such a short time.
Ask 'em - dont shoot the messenger Veras - ex Drooghi/ Cardiff as is the young man looking after this.
