You can still get the BB Black Fleece black pebble-grain longwings for $550. Give the Black Fleece store on Bleeker a call. And, Alden of Carmel always has calf longwings in stock in a couple of colors.

900 USD, wow.... MXgreen, good call on Alden of Carmel. They have some really nice shoes in stock, and their own styles are really well done

I am looking for a pair of burgundy longwing as a beater. My price range is up to $400.

I have a pair of Florsheim Kenmoor already but it fits a bit wider than I'd like.

So far, I have looked at:

-Alden 975 (above my price point)
-AE MacNeil (above my price point)
-Meermin (still under consideration)

I know the general wisdom is to stay away from anything non-1880, but as a beater, what fo you guys think of Loake Royal?



I wonder how this Loake Royal would measure up against the Kenmoor. Any insight is much appreciated.

I have been using my Loake Royals for two months now. They are well made. Since they are not too old, the corrected grain issues have not come out as of yet. They wear slightly bigger than my other Loakes with the same size, albeit slightly. It is a bit stiff to break-in, I have the side scratches below my ankle bones to prove it. It does not have a cool and contemporary last, it is formed like a World War II tank. Against all odds, it is a good buy. biggrin.gif

I cannot compare them to the Kenmoors, as I do not have a pair. I understand that Kenmoors are really sized about a size larger than most Florsheim models. It scares the bejesus out of me to order them online for fear that they will be too big foo.gif.
