I did a lot of research before purchasing my boots and after countless of articles, reviews from people like me, I decided on Solovair. The look and the thread is great! I would say be VERY careful with how you measure to get your size. I could have gone a further size down but I wear thick socks so it’s not too much bigger.
I opted to order the 8 eyelet greasy Solovair boots. I was amazed with their lighting fast shipping. It arrived from England to my address in Canada in 2 days! The boots were incredibly comfortable. No breakin required. Very pleased! Highly recommend.
My last boots were also from Solovair. I used them on an almost daily basis for work and play, lasted 16 years (and still looked decent). However, a new pair became increasingly desirable, and after consulting with the really helpful and friendly customer service team I took the plunge and ordered a new pair - 11 eye Derby Hi-Shines. They arrived a few days later, and felt / looked that after a couple of weeks I ordered another, different pair with some wax etc. The quality is unmistakable - and they are handmade in the UK so the leather, stitching, fit and balance is just superb. Thank you team :-)
These boots are just amazing! They are quite comfortable, well made and don’t feel cheap like other brands. It’s definitely worth the price tag and I’m hoping they last for a good, long time! :)
