Loding Shoes - good quality? - Page 2

post #16 of 29
Finsbury doesn´t sell shoes on the net, it´s a pity.

Fabulous finish!

I own a pair of Loding derbys for a couple of years now. They are pretty sturdy and comfortable. The leather is pretty thick and my pair did crease up a fair bit. They are not the most refined shoes but offer pretty good value. Not sure where they are manufactured but Paul Stuart sold a couple of shoes in 2008 identical to the Loding models sold in France.

im not sure they have it at that price anymore. this was back in 2006 so i dont even know. also, it was in some flea market district in Paris, i dont recall which store had it but it was some store with tons of shoes there.

the Loding were all marked to 50 to 60 euros, i wanted to buy some but we had to rush out of there to take the subway back to the airport.

I bought a pair of chili brogues on sale at the Loding store on Ave de l'Opera. Love them. Great style, very well made, and on sale for 150 Euros. I would have bought the whole store if I had room in my luggage.

They get more great comments than my JM Weston and Testoni combined.

Thanks!

I have a pair of loding's (black monks) bought approx one year ago: 1. Very stiff leather out from the box, needed alot of treatment; 2. Very painful to break-in them - stiff, both in uppers and sole. For the same price (approx. 150 euros) you can buy (from the bay) grensons or even C&J, with the pound going down, or Martegani from R Rider's shop. Loakes from pediwear or plal the same price (around 100 pounds).

I also own a pair of milans, and they got me more (good) comments than my three C&J Hand Grades combined.

You should try Markowski. Better quality for about the same price

Let's keep this thread alive. I ordered a pair half-brogue wingtips (€167.-incl. shipping ) and I am quite happy with the quality of the leather and the general shape of the last (sharp, elegant). The leather is rather stiff, but if you wear them 2-3h every 2 days they will be comfortable within 2 weeks. Best regards, N

I bought some bordeaux cap toe oxfords this summer for 150 euros. I shopped around quite a bit and thought (and continue to think) that the Loding quality-price ratio is very favorable.

As I live in a small, isolated city, the only high-end shoe brand I've had the chance to really try at great length has been Allen-Edmonds, which we carry at the store where I work. AE have a very stiff leather to start...how does Loding compare to AE?
