For reasons I can't go into right now, I saw these in Hebden Bridge this morning, and they made me think of Stense.
Not that Stense reminds me of a pair of old boots, you understand.
Well, not very much.
They both have tongues, I suppose. And heels. And they're both very well built. And they're both very reliable. And they can both be rather straight-laced at times (you know what I'm talking about, Stense, oh yes you do!).
Actually, come to think of it, Stense does remind me of a pair of old boots.
