This isn’t my first pair of @thursdayboots
. My first was a pair of their gorgeous Duke Chelseas in a deep chocolate brown. They looked fantastic-but, to be honest, they never felt quite right on my oddly-shaped feet. The leather was an good, though, that I didn’t want to give them up- and it’s hard to find a better pair at their price point. But, after a few wearing and the cork midsole had broken in, the heel cup was just too large and the bank just too loose. And this isn’t a knock on Thursday- it’s just my feet!
I had been wrong.
So, I contacted them to see if there was anything that could be done. They offered to send me another pair of their “floor model” Duke model. But, even then, they just didn’t feel right. So, the solution was to switch for some of these beautiful lace-ups to keep the vamp tight on my feet- just as I like it. The Natural chromexcel is a blank canvas and will pick up the nicks, scuffs, and a fantastic patina over time. The cap toe is as versatile with office trousers as the white denim I’ve styled for you here. But, for all their depth and character, there’s a lesson behind these boots: the customer is not always right. I kept something I should have tried to exchange months ago. But, truly exceptional companies may just be willing to work with you to make it so. That’s just what @nolanwalsh2018
have done for me. I believe in this company, and I think you should as well.
