    I have received my boots a while ago, and I have already taken them out on a hike. It was a cold and rainy day, and I walked through some boggy areas. So, the shoes became all wet and dirty but not my feet. I like how the tonge is firmly attached to the leather upper quite high up on the ankle. Now that I have them, I understand why they are called “shepherds boots”. I ordered them with the full metalworks which gave me a good grip offroad but felt rather slippery on tarmac. I guess this is the price you have to pay when you go vintage. The commando sole option would probably be the better allrounder but I was simply curious. The upward bent sole on the front part of this model is a bit unusual for me but it helps rolling off when walking. It actually feels as if something is dragging you forward!

    What I really appreciate is that the shoe is build on a wide last. For me, this means that I did not have any hassle with breaking them in. They fit immediately.

    After cleaning them, I wondered what shoe care product to use. The black leather is not matte but since its texture is quite rough and sturdy, it is not shiny either. I decided to use a colourless, waxy product.

    I opted for the long tabbed version of the boot because I wanted something different to the usual Derby boot look. In fact, they look a bit like “monkey boots”. However, I wonder if there is any functional reason for this design.

    I am not an expert but to me, the the quality looks excellent, built with a “made for life” approach. The only problem I got is that one of the leather laces tore apart just after 100 meters.

    I found William Lennon because I was wondering if there is anything beyond NPS when it comes to British boots. This was my first but probably not my last purchase.
