With an additional wool insole they fit much better. I want to wear them in winter obviously, but I don't know if I should always count on wearing the insole.
I have a good amount of room in the toe box but my instep is rather low, so there is some are in that area. Would you suggest the hassle of returning them for a smaller size?

I guess it depends where you are located, for shipping.
I'd say return them for a smaller pair.

I have a pair of Herring boots I bought in their sale, and they're a half size large. Hadn't go my size at the time so I figured they'd be okay with thick socks.
Usually wear them in winter and with thick socks and insoles, but still sometimes feel slightly big. Wish Id held out for better size.

So, return them if yo can. Herring are good with returns.

But please take a few good photos and post them here first.
Much better to see these boots in the real world than the photos on Herrings site.

Return them for half a size done.

Thanks for the input. When I wear them with insoles they actually feel very tight at the toe box, half a size down could be critical with that insole. So I'm still undecided but I will post some pictures tomorrow.

Wearing them with some slightly thicker socks. The last one shows the position of my big toe. What do you guys think?

Why would you buy shoes to put insoles, that throws off the fit. I made that mistake and will never do that again.

Hi gentlemen,

 

I am struggling to choose between, respectively, Herring Babbacombe, Richmond and Loake Strand :

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

Does anyone have a piece of advice regarding the best shoe to purchase among these three ?

And, I really like the Herring Luscombe and the Cheaney & Sons Tiverton. I cannot really decide as I do not know about shoes enough. Any opinion on these two pairs ?

Luscombe:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Cheaney & Sons Tiverton:

Sorry for the very long post.

I was in the same boat back at the start of the year, trying to decide between the Strand and the Herring Richmond in burgundy.
I went with the Strand in the end, telling myself I might get the Richmond some other time. I guess the Richmond would have been more versatile, and worked better with jeans etc, when're the Strand is a bit more formal. I still wear them with jeans sometimes.
The Babbacombe would be seen as more formal again, being a plain captor.

The Strand and the Richmond are made by Loake, but I'm not sure who's making the new Combe last shoes for Herring. They claim that they're made in the UK though.

I will probably get the Strand and the Babbacombe then, thank you very much.

As for the monk shoes, I will get the Herring.

Does anyone have a pair of the Herring Canning?

http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?&brandid=6&shoeid=5313

Curious to everyone's thoughts on the Cannings for work. I wear a shirt and tie to work but no suit so not super formal.

Do the shoes look too country or sleek enough for smart trousers?
