Just placed an order for the Herring Gosforth II with dainite soles: http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&shoeid=3468&colourid=1886&brandid=6
I've been looking for a black shoe to wear on rainy days instead of the older pair of leather-soled oxfords I tend to use. These chukkas should fit the bill with flannel trousers in various shades of grey and possibly also with some suits, especially the somewhat more casual ones.
Interestingly, the Gosforth II appears identical to the Loake 1880 Kempton (same last, style, etc), except it's £15 less. And there's a 10% off discount code on Herring's twitter page that was accepted so still seems active (only for non-sale items though, I think). Not too shabby!
I've got a few pairs of 1880s and they've held up very well over the years (in fact, the black pair I wear on rainy days is from that range). The last time I bought a pair of Herring shoes was a couple of years ago but I was pleased with both customer service and the value, so hopefully this continues.
