Herring Shoes - Experiences? - Page 17

post #241 of 402

Decided I needed a new pair of dark brown rubber-soled shoes for the winter months so have ordered these. Looks like I grabbed the last pair in my size too.

 

I've found Herring a solid & reliable choice for this kind of sturdy shoe; have a pair of rubber-soled Gosforth II's in black from them as well.

Good choice! Herring has an outstanding range and I think they bring out the best from the companies that makes them. I have been looking at the Knightsbridge for a long time and I think that will be my little Christmas present to myself :)

Just to follow up, took a quick snap of them today. Obviously, not the finest pair of shoes in the world, but the sturdy construction & dainite soles mean they will be an excellent, and cost-effective, addition to my winter selection. Very pleased with both the shoes, and Herring's service, as usual. It says something that they will replace a pair of Lobbs in my wardrobe, albeit only because the Lobbs in question fit me least well, and I operate a one-in/one-in shoe policy. (EDIT: forgive the typo pointed out below; wishful thinking ruling my fingers, clearly! :) )

After having them on my wishlist for many weeks i finally took the plunge and ordered two pairs of Herring shoes:
The knightsbridge in tobacco calf and the hampstead in chestnut burnished calf.

These will be forming the basis of my new business wardrobe.

Looking forward to receiving them and will post pics once i do.

Just went to the DHL site to pick up my Herring order. Very happy with Herring's service and DHL's. My shoes were dispatched on the 5th of December at 16.00 and i was able to pick them up the next day already. Also, very nice touch from Herring, i received polish for both shoes and a shoe horn for free.

 

Here are some pics of the new additions:

Funny, but I am having anything but a good experience with their customer service. I have sent multiple email queries asking about a sizing issue with absolutely zero response so far.

That said, maybe someone here has an insight on this…

I am interested in purchasing a pair of Herring's Langdale boots in a G fitting, but need some advice on sizing.

I am a US 10.5 or 11, depending upon the last.

In C&Js, the 337, 325, 341, and 240 lasts fit well in a UK10. I also have a couple of pair of Loakes on the 026 in G that fit extremely well, but have had to size down 1/2 to a 9.5/UK due to the extra width. I also have a air of Sanders in a G that is a 9.5/UK as well.

So just trying to figure out if I should I be buying a 9.5 or a 10 in a G for the Langdale?

The Langdale is made on the Cheaney 175 last which is quite true to size and very much like the 026 in a G fit so I think you'd do nicely with a 9,5 G. If you're planning on using them with heavy socks, you might want to size up to a 10.

Gbg -

Many thanks for this. I know that there will often be tweaks to certain lasts when offered in different fittings such as an E or an F and a G. The length differential may be minimal, but the extra volume in the same size (e.g. 10) shoe will add a huge amount of material in the vamp, causing creasing and folds right from the start. This is true of the 026, hence my Q.

Thanks again for the insight!
