Overall A Great Boot

Really impressive. Great choices by the designers. With leather from Seidel and an outsole from Vibram, it shows the maker is committed to making a quality product. Even things I wasn’t sure about such as the contrast stitching on the upper and the heel counter have grown on me. A bit of a narrow fit though in the D width. Not enough to make the boot unwearable but it does rub at the widest part of my forefoot on the outside. I think these are an excellent bet overall for the price.

Fantastic Boots all around

I picked these Lisbon because they checked all the boxes for me: 360 split welts, sleek last, great leather (Grizzly Cattail), and hidden lug soles. But when I received the boots, I was even more impressed by the fit and the finish. They were immediately comfortable on my feet. I wear 9.5D for Allen Edmonds shoes and 9D for Alden 403. These Caswell Lisbon 9.5D fit me perfectly. These will be a very close race in my fastest-to-break-in shoes (the first being the Alden 403). I got these as seconds with a discount. But, wow, if this is seconds, I think you don't need to think twice to pay the full price for any of Caswell's collections. One more thing, Kevin is super responsive in his communication. I even got a handwritten thank you note in the box. How cool is that!

Great Quality Boots

I just got mine and I definitely was impressed. The leather, the welt, the stitching are just perfect. Very comfortable from the beginning. And the size, just perfect! Go with your true size. In comparison from another brands they are toe to toe with Grant Stone. And the customer service from Kevin is just top notch. You definitely need this one on your collection.

These are impeccable!

I started my journey for my first pair of quality boots just a few months ago. The information that I came away with was overwhelming. Lasts, welts, leathers, price points, just a ton of things to consider. I ended up torn between buying a decent entry level pair and feeling it out, or just going all in on a top of the line heritage brand. Then I came across Caswell. They seemed to be offering the best of both worlds. Quality craftsmanship and leather from some of the most reputable tanneries, but at a great price. So I reached out. My email was about the sizing, but what really sold me on pulling the trigger is that I got a response from Kevin, the owner himself, in no more than 20 minutes. I just got these boots in the mail and I'm blown away. They are a work of art. They fit like a glove and there isn't a single stitch out of place. Not only are the boots quality, but the packaging is pristine as well, all the way down to a handwritten thank you card. This is a company owned by someone that is passionate about it, and it shows. This will most definitely not be my last purchase here. Thank you Kevin!

Nice Boots!

I got these boots because I liked the color and the clean lines. Unfortunately, I really did not get a chance to wear them because they were slightly big. I wear a 9 1/2 D and probably need a 9 but the size 9 is out of stock for now. I must say the customer service is outstanding though. I've got a size 9 coming in another style on the same last. If those fit, I will likely get the Cattail when available. BTW, I had never heard of this company until I came across a YouTube video on it. I was impressed so gave them a try. The video on the Lisbon Bison boot really showed out the detail and color on this boot and I like them too - but no size 9 here either. It seems like a good company with strong attention to detail, customer service, and producing quality boots. I hope to have a pair to wear soon. Again, shout out to their customer service for helping me to get a proper fit.
