It is one of the better makes in The Netherlands, for whatever that's worth. I seem to remember it is mentioned in 'The gentleman' as the best Dutch choice(, for whatever that's worth). I have two pairs a pair of black cap toe oxfords and a pair of brown suede half high shoes (chuckas?).
Haven't worn the oxfords often enough to be sure, but happy with the other pair.I have to say though that my experience with high end shoe makers is limited. They are sturdy, though. The noble blue line (now advertised on sf) is supposedly the higher end line. Have not tried them. A drawback, imo are the wider sole parts sticking out from the nose. It makes them a little less sleek, stylingwise.
