    Purchased the Shepherd’s Hill Boot in dark Brown Kip with a Vibram sole and semi-sprung last. Libs was a delight to order from and my personal modifications to the standard boot were easily accommodated. The boot (size11) is a generous med-broad fit for my 10-10.5 foot allowing for a good sock. The boots were immediately comfortable and within a day or two light wear feel like old friends. The leather is rugged close grained yet supple and the brown shade will develop a nice mottled patina. Mine are unlined and this slightly concerned me before they arrived but the fit is so good and the leather supple that I have no worries about comfort even on long distance heavy use. They have a gentle flex when wearing and the semi sprung last gives a slight spring in the step. The glued and screwed sole offers confidence without being too aggressive looking. The style is clean, plain and traditional, like their owner. After years of traditional expensive double-stitched German & Italian mountain boots, which were either too heavy, or too stiff or not fit for general walking, this classic utilitarian handmade all English hill Boot gives me more pleasure and more practical use than all the others. Character, Comfort and Quality at a very competitive price. I want another pair but these will outlast me. The only tweak is that the leather laces both snapped straight away – faulty leather or i’m too strong tying a knot???? I replaced with mustard yellow mountain boot laces and they look all business. The older I get, the choosier I get – and I couldn’t have chosen better. I have a very long distance prayer pilgrimage planned in them and I can’t wait. Thanks Lib & all at Lennon’s. They give me joy!

    • Thank you Simon for taking the time to leave your feedback for your Shepherd’s boots. We really appreciate it, and I will pass on your thanks to all here in the factory. It’s great to know that your boots fit well and will be put to good use on your planned pilgrimage. We would very much like to send some new laces to you and apologise for the pair included with your boots failing. Photos of your boots when worn in would be lovely to see too. Take care, Libs
