Church’s is a worldwide renowned manufacturer of fine leather footwear and has been for centuries. Their beginnings can be traced back to as early as 1873, where they had modest beginnings in a small workshop in Northampton. Today they have multiple stores around the globe at international capitals. But like many famous brands have their prices become inflated by their brand name? Today we will compare Church’s Ryder 3 to the De Winter Warwick.
The Ryder 3
Church’s Ryder 3 chukka boot is a beautifully constructed chukka boot. Goodyear welted construction with Dainite rubber soles these boots are built to last. The rubber soles offer good grip and a lightweight stride. Fully leather lined for added comfort and made on the 81 last. The Ryder 3 comes in; blue suede, black suede, brown suede and maraca suede.
The De Winter Warwick is also a beautifully constructed chukka boot. Goodyear welted with rubber soles form the Itshide factory, established 1863. Itshide rubber soles are just as hardwearing and lightweight as Dainite soles. So you can be comfortable in the fact that these Warwick will last just as long as a pair of Church’s. The Warwick is also fully leather lined for added comfort and made on the Hurst last. The Hurst last offers an elegant toe shape that no other last from other brands offer, giving the Warwick a truly unique look and style. The Warwick comes in; snuff suede, polo snuff suede, brown grain, brown waxed calf and black calf. The black calf available in either a contrast or non-contrast thru sole.
Why choose the Warwick?
Both of these boots are rather special, have fantastic quality and built to last a lifetime. However, the Church’s Ryder 3 will cost you £410, whereas a pair of Warwick’s will only cost you £212. This is because at De Winter Boots we sell our boots directly to the customer, avoiding any hefty mark-ups.
