You all probably realise, but the name of the album was so named because boots and panties were the only items of clothing that Ian Dury purchased new; all other clothing items were obtained from charity stores etc.

Hello Rob, those boots are indeed beautiful and will last you a lifetime if well looked after. Is that a double leather of danite rubber sole.
They have the ”Victory“ pattern Dainite sole, I’ve had a few “Oops-a-daisy“ moments on wet pavements with leather soles! Someone has suggested that, when they wear out, to replace the soles with the Oliver Sweeney commando sole which is meant to be better. Whatever, that’s a few years off yet!

I did know the reason behind the album title, but had forgotten it, and now that you reminded me of it, I know it again!

Yes, I have noticed that many makers are now converting to rubber soles; I've known a few people who have taken a tumble and suffered broken wrists for their troubles. I'm still a traditionalist until I probably come off for the worst.

All the best Rob, enjoy your boots.

A fantastic album from Ian Dury and the Blockheads! :) P.
