The back of our new factory overlooks the very popular and smart Harewood Golf Course. Our team sit outside at lunchtime to have their lunch with a great view of one of the fairways and greens on the course. In order to publicise our new factory shop we’ve put a billboard up to let the golfers know about the shop:
We’re back from our Finland/Lapland holiday, and I wanted to let you know the boots were great. Our feet were toasty the whole time, even during the -25C degree reindeer sleigh ride! The snowmobile ride was – 10C, and Helsinki was generally -16C every day. We walked all around the town centre and through the very cold and bleak Botanic Gardens. On the last day we visited an island where there’s an old fortress and is now a naval training centre. When we got off the ferry at the dock, the wind chill was absolutely freezing – I’ve never felt so cold in my life, it was actually painful on the face and fingers, but our feet were still warm.
Thanks for a wonderful product. I’ll try and attach a few pic’s.
We’ve just opened our new Factory Shop located in our new premises at Unit 2, 25 Sheffield Crescent, Burnside, Christchurch. The shop is open 10am – 3pm Monday to Thursday. EFTPOS and Credit cards are taken.
Enter Canterbury Leather: a New Zealand-based company who have been handcrafting sheepskin boots since 1974. After hearing of my boot plight (it was front page news) they offered to send me a pair of their boots to trial and I gleefully accepted, picking a pair of their Robyns.
When they arrived about a week later I literally spent five minutes marvelling that these boots had come all the way from New Zealand. Isn’t the postal service fascinating? And then I marvelled at just how fricking comfortable and lovely they are. They’re completely different to UGGs: they feel much more solidly crafted (the heel stiffner is heat shaped and set and you can tell), they’re beautifully warm because of the sheepskin lining and I love the way they look.
