Loding Shoes - Page 3

post #31 of 38
I bought a pair of pennies a few years ago: quality is ok given the price. Approx. half of the shoes are GY welted.

When I asked where the shoes are made, the salesman told me "France-Spain-Portugal" or something like that. I believe they use French calf (from le Puy) (which actually doesn't mean anything about quality) and shoes are made in Spain (or Portugal), by Zarco.

Sizing : I bought the same size as my CJs (both 9 UK in standard width)

I think the quality of the oxford and brogue shoes are pretty decent but not as good as Meermin. I have two pair of Loding and one pair of Meermin, which is superior.


Regarding the size I have the same size in Loding, Meermin and Crockett and Jones.


Loding has a pricing policy that all leather shoes is 160€ which makes the Jodphur boots really cheap but the quality of the leather is also not very good on the boots.

The leather inside the shoe, at the heel, actually broke just after a couple of months use. I have made a claim and we will see how that goes.


So far my experience of their customer service is that they speak English really bad and are not very quick to respond or helpful.


When I unpacked my boots i saw that there were like black marks on the buckles on both shoes. I sent an email and suggested a price reduction so that I could get it fixed but they didn't want to do that and instead suggested that I send back the boots and recieve a new one. I didn't do that because it was not a big issue for me.


If they don't solve my claim in a satisfying way I will upload som photos of the boots.

Ok, so I still haven´t heard from them and it´s been nearly a month. I´m so pissed since i bought them in November last year and they started to break in March. 160€ plus a rubber sole of 35€... what a waste.


Anyone have any tip of what to do besides sending them another email?



Have a look at the photos of the shoes below.


This photo of the buckle was taken when i unboxed them.

Reviving an old thread, Are these shoes still holding up? Any reviews will be appreciated as I plan to visit their stores in Paris coming weekend.

They are holding up, barely. I will never buy Loding again but I will continue to use these until they break. Just took a photo of them:

Wow, after <2 years? Assuming you have a normal rotation, that's brutal. Actually, even if you don't.

Have you cared for them in any way? What conditioners did you use and how frequent? Did they get brushed regularly?

That looks bad. Did the shoe see a lot of rain?


I ended buying Finsbury!
