Northern Sole Footwear
Northern Sole is a company who pride themselves on being able to offer their customers shoes that are unique, by allowing the customer to choose a colour that they like that is not just your standard black, brown or tan!
Hand painted by a specialist, these shoes really do stand out from the crowd and I was lucky enough to be sent a pair of JACK leather tan chelsea boots, a pair of EDISFORD leather and tweed brogue boots and a pair of PRINCE smart leather tan plimsoll. The Jack Chelsea boots are right up my street. I do love a chelsea boot and I think if you get the right pair they go with absolutely everything. This particular pair are made with calf skin buff leather and are hugely comfortable. The soft leather and elastic gusset makes them easy to get on and off. The elastic is made of high quality honeycomb patterned elastic and not only does it look appealing but it’s also a lot more durable.
The tan colour is vibrant and smart, they have been hand dyed by a specialist and you can tell the effort that has gone into making them by the detail. They have a soft calfskin leather lining and padded sock which adds to the comfort. I wore these boots all day, commuting around London, and was pleasantly surprised that my feet did not ache or hurt. The sole is a leather and TPR combination, featuring a leather sole material showing the painted waist with embossed logo and inlaid TPR rubber heel and forepart tread for improved grip and durability.
When I was walking around London getting on and off the tubes they felt stable under foot and not at all heavy. They look good and they do their job – what more could you ask for? And perhaps what I love the most is the red leather section on the sole, the red sole stitching, red in- sock and red leather heel tab as it makes them stand out a little and everyone knows they’re Northern Sole.The Edisford leather and tweed brogue boots are just what I need at this time of year when I am out walking my dogs in the cold wet weather. They are made of high quality leather upper which has been hand dyed in tan and further burnished to create a rich and unique finish.
The tweed section adds a little bit of something to make the boots stand out from all the other plain tan boots that are out there. The collar of the boots is padded which makes them extra comfortable and stops them being hard and rubbing at the back, adding to this is the sock and lining that are both made from soft calfskin leather. One of my favourite features of these boots is the zip on the inside making them easy to get on and off with no need to keep tying and untying the laces. The sole is made from anti slip TPR for increased longevity and increased grip during the winter months. As with the Jack Chelsea boots these brogue boots also have the red leather section on the sole, the red sole stitching, red in- sock and red leather heel tab, and they also come with a spare pair of laces in red.
The Prince smart leather plimsolls are the perfect type of shoe as they can be worn for either smart or casual occasions. They can be paired with either tailored trousers or jeans and are made from the finest calfskin buff leather upper which has been hand dyed. Plus, the lining and sock is also made from a soft calfskin leather. The full leather sock is moulded with support on all of the right places, I definitely felt the benefit of this when I wore these to a wedding reception and danced the night away in them. As you would expect these also have the signature Northern Sole feature of red in the leather in sock and leather heel tab.Northern Sole produce great quality shoes and boots for affordable prices that do not compromise on quality and if this is what you need then be sure to check them out.
