My boots came today! I never expected the unboxing to be so magical; to see that wonderful logo on the box, to breathe the scent of fine leather even through the cardboard, to feel the heavy boots with their satisfyingly oiled surfaces in my hands! Thank you Son of Sandlar for you excellent work, I do appreciate it. Although, waiting for faire to come back will be nothing short of torture now! Merry Christmas and happy new year to all you folks at Son of Sandlar. See you at the faire!
I've had a pair of Low Buckle Boots for some years now. Recently, I broke a buckle on one boot. Son of Sandlar promptly sold me a replacement buckle at a fair price to put them back in service. The buckle came pre-attached to it's strap, a nice (and quite unexpected) surprise. I'm very happy with my boots, and the continuing service from you.
I bought my pair of nine button boots about 2 years ago. The comfort of these boots is astonishing. I like them so much that I am planning to buy another pair this year.
I'm really excited guys! I have just ordered my first ever pair of Son of Sandlar boots! For my Renaissance Faire friends that know what those are, *excited scream and happy dance*. Those of you that don't. Check them out! They're amazing! Thank you to the people that helped me figure out the ordering details! smile emoticon
Here's to boots with traction!
This year I purchased a pair of Sandlar boots, and it was the best purchase I could have possibly made. The boots have been worn consistently for the past 6 or 7 months, and my feet have yet to hurt in these boots. Even on days when I am doing 5 massages (massage therapist by profession), my feet do not hurt. Plus, the shoes are definitely nice to look at and I get complimented on them constantly. I love these boots!
I walked by this booth at Pennsic several times before being tempted in by shade, an electric fan, and lovely sales people. I truly had no intention to make a purchase, but once I tried on the medievalish slips, I couldn't leave without them. I live in Oregon and have worn them every day since Pennsic: in the rain (LOTS of it), snow, and sunshine. They are my favorite shoes and look fantastic with garb or blue jeans!
I just got my beautiful purple Queen of Hearts boots! They are truly lovely and feel wonderful! Thank you! PurpleJen
There is not much I can say that hasn't already been said. I ordered my boots last week and they were shipped out to me right away. Before ordering them, I spent several days e-mailing Son of Sandlar about the boots I wanted and you all were fast to answer my questions. When I received my boots, I tried them on and found that they are in fact the best boots I have ever worn. I am looking forward to wearing them for many years to come. The Low Buckle Boots I ordered are the best looking boots I have ever seen as well. Thanks for the great service and even greater product.
I just got my boots. 27 years I have been attending Ren Faires, SCA, and all manner of medieval type gatherings. My shoes have been a constant source of foot discomfort. I always shied away from Sons of Sandlar due to the price. THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY. The boots are wonderful. They feel great, they look fantastic, the are rugged, and I will never need another pair of boots ever again. If you are like me and holding off, STOP and get your boots now. You will not regret it!
4 years ago, I tried on a pair of Sandlar boots for a photo shoot. I never intended to own a pair, I just needed to borrow them for 15 minutes. After the shoot, I didn't want to take them off. I bought them on the spot and wear them all the time now... with jeans, skirts, shorts, and costume ren-faire clothes. They look good with anything. I can wear them for 10 hours at a time, and my feet do not hurt. And after 4 years of regular wear, they still look good as new. I love the way they feel and I love the compliments I get when I have them on.
I walked by the booth at Texas Ren Fest for years and years always saying to myself "I like those boots."
I would go in and look at the boots but always told myself they were too much. I worked at TRF last year and decided to try a pair on and fell in love with the comfort. They are great for standing for a long time, my feet did not hurt after hours of standing. Amazing.
