I really love these. I was a little concerned when I first tried them on that maybe they might be a little too chunky. When they arrived they looked a little bigger than I expected but they fit great and after 2 weeks of wearing them I really like them. The leather looks and feels fantastic and they seem great quality. They have some attitude to them which for me is a plus.
What else can be said about the quality of English made Solovairs? Please, please I implore you: never outsource your labor to other countries. Although I live in the States we want our quality “UK Made” shoes and boots to be made, where else? In bloody England! As another brand is slipping in bed with the Chinese so does his respectability and quality. Not knocking the hard working folks of China, but let’s face it, they could never have the same commitment of pride in craftsmanship that comes with knowing a certain product is a reflection of your culture. They’re too busy manufacturing everything else under the Sun to give two shits about “quality”. And that’s the thing...as soon as my shoes arrived to my home in Southern California (took only 4 days! With FREE shipping!! Can you best that?) I couldn’t take my eyes away from the level of craftsmanship that went into making these beauties. In fact, everyone I’ve showed them to remarked first and foremost, “those are high quality Gibson’s you got there”. “You’re damn right they are”, I retorted. And as Jean Valjean said in Hugo’s masterpiece, “you can feel their weight and their worth”.
If Solovair begins having their high quality product slapped together by repressed workers in a country ruled over by cold hearted slave masters, well I’ll be positively guaranteeing that the quality will be on a decline. However, as of now I’m satisfied, content and most pleased with my steel toed. Hi Shine, 3 eyed Gibby’s. Thank you! I’m so ecstatic and pleased that I’ll be petitioning the legislating committee in Hollywood to change the legendary famous sign. I’m asking for them to replace the “H” and the “W” with a “J” and a “G”, that way it spells out how I feel about my English made Solovair shoes: Jollygood!
I finally arrive, but many taxes are paid in my country
High quality shoes and cool look. Service was great and the shoe size guide system was very helpful. I ordered the shoes to Finland, everything went well.
Best work shoes I've ever had, so comfy from day one, no breaking in required
