Looking to move on some nice bits that for various reasons aren't getting used.
Red Wing classic moc-toe boots + unopened mink oil and application cloth. It's that old tragic story - I bought these online just over a year ago and didn't want to admit they didn't fit. I have worn them for ~3 x 1 hour long walks during lockdown on pavements and quite a lot of full days in the office/around the house to see if they would somehow mould to my feet and suddenly feel comfortable. They didn't. They are a UK 10 but I'd say would properly fit an 11. Condition is A+++. Boots were £240 and the cream and cloth £20. I'd love £170 for the lot (have the original box too).
North face walking boots. These were about £180 4 years ago I think. They have been lightly used (a few decent walks in the lakes, some muddy plodding between pubs around the Cotswolds) but not wonderfully looked after (my cleaning/treating game was weak with these). They're definitely on the heavier side but solid as fuck. I have dodgy achilles and just never got on with them. £80.
Folk overshirt/chore jacket. Brand new, with tags. I picked this up from the Lambs Conduit store after a 4 pint lunch, didn't try it on for months and when I did the cut and style just didn't work for me. I figured I'd return it at some point but it was out of returns period. RRP was around £100 I think, selling for £50, size 3, which is I guess a traditional medium, I'm 6 foot and ~80kgs and it's a good fit, size-wise.
Barbour anorak - I bought it ~4 years ago because a girl I was dating told me it looked good. Probably worn 4 times, then decided I didn't really like it and went back to my patagonia. It is basically unworn, really good quality, waterproofing was good from memory (for a city raincoat rather than technical trekking wear) and fit was good. I think it was about £120, how does £40 sound?
I'm SE23, would rather not post but certainly can do at buyer's cost. Welcome to come and try anything on!
what size are the North Face boots? Thanks.
@amey if any of these things fit you should make a play.
That would have been helpful wouldn't it! UK 11, I'm a 10.5 and they fit well with thick socks...
Bump and £5 off the Barbour
what size is the barbour? thanks
S but definitely fits like M. I'm 6" and it wasn't small on me.
Bump and £5 off the walking boots...
I've got a pair of those NF boots - best walking boots I've ever owned for winter/autumn/spring. Had them for about 7 years and still going strong.
Nice one mate! Yeah they're properly solid, sole feels really secure and 'integrated' to the boot, if that make sense, but they just don't play nice with my achilles/heel shape...
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
