    Got those boots a few days ago. They are well made and heavy. The stock colour “mahogany” is brown with reddish hue, much better in my eyes than the site photo. I ordered them with leather lining, and i started to break them in during Greek summer… So far everything OK. Even after 15 hours of continuous wear my feet are not complaining. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Had these boots around two years now. Took a little while to arrive, but worth the wait. The picture on the Lennon website does not really show the boot as it appears in real life, as it is not at all tan or shiny in appearance, but rather a matt/waxy dark brown- more like the leather used in saddlery or dog leads.
    The leather is obviously of a high quality, and after a little wetting and hand-‘working’ with some E 45 hand-cream was made wonderfully soft and ready for wear to work. Somewhat irritatingly, the William Lennon items I have purchased in the past all seem to be very multi-purpose, making other , more expensively footwear almost redundant.
    I wear these work boots for landscaping work around seven months of the year (I live in southern England and usually wear lighter desert boots in the height of summer), but they are extraordinarily comfortable in almost all weathers save for very hot. On Holiday in the highlands of Scotland, I had some Meindl walking boots, but found myself wearing the William Lennons most of the time as they were more versatile, and, with some good wax, almost completely water-proof, despite being unlined and without goretex.
    After two years there is no visible wear on either sole or uppers, and I imagine they will serve me for at least 6-7 years, making them far more economical then typical foreign-made work boots.
    If I had a gripe, it is only that the foot-bed is pretty hard- however this has been easily resolved with a pair of Meindl inner soles from my walking boots.

    The simple unlined construction is a huge advantage- making these boots breathable and completely free of odour even after the longest day at work!!!
