Leather uppers come in different finishes although the raw product is very similar.
This is leather which has been dyed to attain its colour. The material is soft, giving superior comfort, and has somewhat less of a shine than polished leather finishes.
Polished leather uppers are treated to give a high shine appearance, this can give an initial firmer feel to the shoe.

The size is the size of your foot. A larger size is for a larger foot. All shoes vary in length due to different last shapes, welts and so on. We cannot measure shoes to fit your feet because of this variation.
US customers need to be aware that UK sizes are different to US sizes. For example a US size 6 customer should order a UK size 5 or 5.5. This is because the lasts that the shoes are made on are physically different to those in the US.
Received the boots yesterday and they are wonderful. There was no duty or tariff charge. Considering that the boots were shipped from overseas the shipping time was fairly remarkable.
Thank you for the shoe-horn, shoe-wax and mostly the easy transaction...
