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! :) )
