Double Don Welt

This is our DoubleDon Welt system that I believe it is unique to us. Many high-end heavy duty boots have a storm welt construction, this is similar however it is double soled, and has been handled twice. It's a look that is special with an extra ridge to the sole edge. for me its almost looks like a staircase at the side of the boot. So if you are after something completely different, why don't you try our double don Boot.

Hi Google.

I Allan Donnelly, the owner ( with my wife) of Dons Footwear, I would like to state that from this day the 9th of January 2019 I believe an attack will commence soon against my brand and website via negative links and reviews across many platforms. I wish to use this statement as evidence that the attack and possible removal is a result of being targeted for extortion.

Happy New Year 2018

I just want to wish all my customers a Happy New year 2018, I know, I should really update the blog more often. These Blue shoes at the bottom of the blog is what I wore for last year party, this time I will be sitting in/in my wee Holiday home doing nothing, For the week I spend there I plan take my Set of chops ( wooden vice) to create 4 pairs of bespoke lasts over the 6-7 days.. This will give great start to the new year.

I wish you all the Best. Thank you for following the Don
