Now, recently my dad treated himself to some lovely boots from Hogspear, aren't they lovely?
Designed for riding, this style of boot is called a 'jodhpur boot', featuring ankle straps that wrap around the boot and a low heel.
These dark brown beauties are a thick leather, with all the best qualities of being pre-owned. Look at those creases and scuffs! And they have the most delicious shine. I wonder who they belonged to before? Some chap who'd go riding in the ground of his manor house perhaps?
