Sorry for the bump, but they do look great compared to the pictures on the Herring site (http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&colset=1&styleid=921&shoeid=3063&brandid=6&catid=84&oldcolid=1656&stype=0&colourid=1658) Any idea where they are made since the site says "imported"? India (by Loake) maybe since if they are made inside the EU they normally mention that fact. Also, how is the quality after a while?
Herring Pimlico made by Barker (http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=6&shoeid=4300)
Woah, their prices went up by more than 10%.... Pricey website redesign that was.

It aren't scratches, it seems to be inside the leather. Also, the leather seems not to take shoe cream quite well, Could it be that this is non-calf leather?
I recently acquired some Cheaney shoes and noticed the leather has some faint "stripes" as can be seen in the picture. They don't look like stretch marks or scars to me, so I wondered if anyone here knows what it might be.
Check out the Herring premier collection: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-list.php?brandid=6&catid=43 Most of them are made by Cheaney. Also, check out their sales page, they sometimes have some nice deals on Cheaney and Barker shoes. I would personally also avoid their shoes made by Loake since they have been quite disappointing quality wise (even their top 1880 range).
Check out http://www.styleforum.net/t/227731/quality-of-grenson-shoes for a recent thread about Grenson shoes. My advise: avoid their current line (all made in India now, none made in England). I too was a huge Grenson fan, but moved over to Cheaney and Barker.
