I think it has more to do with them being perched on top of a box plastered with the Cheaney logo.

Hmm...not balmoral but pretty sleek just the same. I wonder what the new colors will be?

With the addition of a vibram outsole and some waterproofing, these could be some pretty kick ass winter dress boots.

Those are definitely a Loake shoe

Perhaps my advice was heeded! I e-mailed Herrings last year (I think) suggesting a Loake made boot of this style and colour. After, all there is really very little to choose from out there.

I've got a pair of these and I love 'em. The colour does change a bit depending on the light but the pics are pretty accurate. They are very comfy after being broken in a bit over a few weeks of wear and are non slip after being topy-ied. I wear a hard orthotic and need ankle support - they work well and look sleek and dainty enough to wear with a suit. [They don't look extremely dainty but they are clearly not down the chunky end of the scale ] I think I'll also get a black pair and I'd simply love a burgundy pair and a dark brown pair. I wonder if they would do a double monk pair.

How do you like them in terms of fit, comfort, quality, etc? Are they darker or lighter shade?

I have both the Black and the Chestnut model now. My favourite shoes - if i may call boots shoes. Fit well - comfy - look much smarter and less boot-like, under trousers than you might expect The colour is about right but actually looks a bit richer in real life.

I'm considering ordering a pair of herring shoes... do they fit tts? Any advice? I don't particularily want to have to put them up for sale, but cannot try them on. I'm usually a 10.5/11 (US) shoe. 11 + usually in Allen Edmonds, which I also find fit quite narrow. Any input is greatly appreciated.

About how much did you pay for them?

I wear an 11 medium in Allen Edmonds (most mall crap I bought pre-SF was 11.5 or more). I sized down a full size to 10 with some trepidation when first ordering Loake made boots, they fit well. I subsequently ordered two pairs of shoes from herring, also in UK 10 medium, and they also fit well. Some places suggest UK sizing is a half size different from U.S., but in my somewhat limited personal experience a full size is a better estimate, at least for US11/UK10.

I was about to buy these boots in chestnut (after a nice conversation with one of the new owners also!), but I am not sure about which size to get. This is important since I am located in Singapore and have no way of seeing or trying the shoe. I am a 43 euro which translates to 8.5-9 UK; but the only UK shoes I can try here are Jeffery West, Paul Smith, and Loake. The first two fit in size 9 but the Loakes are large and I have to size down to 8.5 for a snug fit. I was about to play it safe and go for size 9 for the Herring Stratfords but I heard they are made by Loake so I don't know if they will follow Loake's sizing. Anybody knows any information regarding such issues?

Email Herring, they will know exactly how it relates to Loake because they helped design the last.
