I don't think those little scuffs are worth returning for, my shoes look like that after one day of wear anyway.

 

I'd just polish and enjoy personally, maybe Herring will give you a small discount though if you show them.

Has anyone got the Herring Coniston boots?
Hoping to see what they look like out in the real world, as opposed to Herrings studio shots.
Only 1 or 2 low quality photos of them online.

Never dealt with herrring before, but can you guys tell me about this shoe:

is it full grain leather?

To be 100% sure you probably should just ask Gentlemen's Footwear, since we can only guess based on the description. The webpage says it is made by Loake in England, so probably equivalent to Loake 1880. This means it is likely to be Goodyear welted and full grain leather. Looks like a nice design/shape, especially for the price. If I had to guess, I'd say that it looks a lot like the Loake Buckingham.

I believe it is the Herring Richardson on the 26 last made by Loake; so yes, it is Goodyear welted.

 

Loake welts almost all their shoes.

CS confirmed that they are GYW, full grain and loake 026 last.  so question is...do i pull the trigger?  hows the quality on loake for herrings at this price range?  Am I better off saving up 100+ more for a pair of carminas?

post #472 of 480
Loake makes their shoes for herring to their 1880 line spec, if not slightly better. Loake's 1880 range is considered about the same as Allen Edmonds in quality. I personally would save up for Carmina.

Where will you be wearing these shoes? Do you need them now? They are good shoes regardless.

I don't have any herring made by Loake, just to level set. I have heard they are equal to or better than AE as long as they are the 1800 series. I do have herring made by Cheaney and believe they are outstanding shoes for the money. Herring is well known and has a good reputation for good reason. I would try the herring richmonds, which these are I believe, if they came in my width. Unfortunately, I think the GF ones are an F fit. I wear a G fit. But for $245 less the coupon, if it's still valid, it is well worth the shot, IMO.

And Carmina at this point will be $150-200 more. If money isn't the issue, then buy the ones that fit best. But if it is, and it seems like it is, then buy the herrings and see if they fit. $1000 shoes that don't fit aren't worth $1 to you.

$245 for entry-level full grain calfskin welted shoes is an excellent deal.

Hi guys,
I've just received a pair of Knightsbridge oxfords from Herring and unboxed it. And I am so disappointed I have no words. The edges are slightly uneven (I mean the seam across the toe), I can see some glue (?), and the "black polished" leather looks almost exactly like my rainboots' rubber material.
I was hoping to receive something maybe not classy but at least neatly done.
Will try to return them.

Have you contacted them ? My previous experiences with them are very good. Even wearing a pair today smile.gif

Not yet, but I'm definitely going to do this.
And what was your issue with them? If I understand you correctly.
post #478 of 480
Sorry you understood incorrectly, I've never had a problem with Herring Shoes and have always found them helpful
post #479 of 480
@ShoePrestige, sorry I'm not a native speaker, I've been studying English more than ten years ago, but I'm trying hard).
I've contacted them just now by email, hope to hear soon from them and to have only good experience with Herring in the future.

I have a pair of Knightsbridge in G width. The leather is serviceable but not great. I find that they are good at this price point though.

I did not have the issues you mentioned with glue etc, though. Get in touch with the folks at Herring. They are pretty nice, and i have bought from them multiple times.
