Winter boots for ladies

If you are still unsure of what boots to get this winter or haven’t done your research this post will hopefully cross the t’s and dot the i’s for you.

Dubarry Galway Boots
This is a premium Irish made boot, totally waterproof thanks to Goretex lining and the sole unit injected directly onto the upper. The boot is made of  breathable dry-fast dry-soft leather.
The perfect choice for wearing about town or in the country. Stylish and practical.

Treat with protector spray before first wear to prevent stains and Dubarry Boot Conditioner to nourish and protect the upper. Any dirt can be washed off with cold soapy water.


Sorel Canadian Snow Boots
These winter snow boots are completely waterproof.  Sorel’s frost-plug technology prevents the heat from escaping the boot and the thermal lining keeps your feet nice and snug. These boots are suitable for wearing in temperatures down to minus 23°!

Again, the protector spray  prolongs the good looks of your boots and helps repell water and prevent stains. To clean, gently wipe with cloth or sponge dampened in soapy cold water.

Merrell Taiga Buckle Boots
Good solid walking boots with non-slip soles. These feature «PolarTech» thermal insulation linings and EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate — a soft and flexible synthetic material) moulded sole units for durability and comfort.

Treat with protector spray before first use and top it up regularly. The dirt should be cleaned off with cold soapy water before it can dry, otherwise the leather may dry out and loose flexibility. Leather conditioner can be used to nourish the leather after cleaning but the boots must be dry before applying the cream.

7 Tips On the Size And Fit of Childrens Boots

At The Golden Boot we are passionate about perfectly fitted shoes and we would like to share some tips and tricks with you so you know exactly what to look for.

Tip 1: A given shoe size will fit differently from brand to brand.

The number one tip when looking for a pair of boots is to realise that different brands’ products will offer different fit. This may be determined by the shape of the sole, and also the last. The lasts are dummy shapes of both feet that are used in production of shoes where the shoe is literally built around this shape. Each manufacturer will have their own last shape so the shoe size and width will differ from brand to brand. Some brands also offer multiple ranges which can be based around different last shapes.

Here is a comparison of the fitting of childrens brands: (more…)

Red Wing Boots reviewed In MCN

This article from this weeks Motor Cycle News couldn’t sum up any better how good Red Wing boots are. We have stocked Red Wing for several years and they were a great addition to our collection. They are made using a goodyear welt joining the sole to the upper. This is the same construction used by English brands such as Loake and Barkers. This construction allows them to be easily resoled. If you are interested in having a pair of Red Wing boots resoled please don’t hesitate to contact us.
