My absolute favorite pair of boots. Exactly how this style of boot was meant to be made. Quality. These are the true derby boots. I love the rub off leather too, it’s gorgeous.
Ive owned just about every brand boot I'd say Solovair is the best quality the leather is thick & the boot itself is very comfortable they have very organic feel of hand made quality worth every penny!
I've been wearing my 8 eye for the last few weeks, feels good to wear apart from the usual breaking in soreness. The only issues I've found is that the tongue was creased in a weird way and it hasn't sorted itself out two weeks later.
Secondly that the leather piece that your heel rests on –the thing with the foil stamping that you can see by looking into the boot– wasn't adhered to the sole correctly, and the first time I took my foot out of the boot it peeled half of the leather off. Both shoes had this but I was able to re-stick them to the sole with some shoe glue.
If you're getting a pair of these to replace your docs then I'd recommend them; they have great leather and they are built sturdily. Just remember that they have flaws too. Great shoe, but some minor hiccups
Great quality boots, fast shipping.
I just got my new boots and all I can say is “wow”. Takes me back to my first few pairs of another brand. These are very well made boots. My work boots have always been red wings and these boots match that quality. The leather is a smidge stiff but will break in nice nicely. Last is perfect. I followed the size guide and could have maybe gone down a half size. I wear an 11 US in my brooks running shoes and a 10.5 US in most dress shoes. The size guide had me go with a 9.5 UK. I have the standard “thumb width” from my toe to the end. They feel roomy but not too big. Time will tell but if they break in and feel too big, I’ll just slap in an insole. This will be my go-to boot. Thank you!
