I broke a personal rule an ordered a pair of oxfords online. A saw a sale for a pair of Herring Knightsbridge cap toes for £104.17 plus shipping. My credit card was charged $191.34, which is very close to the current exchange rate of $189.34. They retail on their website for £162.50, so I was expecting a second.
My order arrived overnight from London, but they sent a pair of Richmonds in perfect condition. Herring is famous for their customer service and they offered me a £35 refund and processed it in minutes. The money’s already back on my card. I got a very nice pair of shoes for $106 plus shipping.
A few observations: They are a very substantial shoe and make my AEs look svelte and demure. They’re more like Aldens, though not as flat in the vamp. Also like Aldens, the leather is very stiff and shiny—more like cordovan and nothing like the picture on their website.
