Herring Shoes - Experiences? - Page 36

post #526 of 537

Thank you very much guys, based on your comments I have decided not to go for this deal. I may need to save a bit more and go for a Calf model although this made me realise that I don't really need to replace my oxfords just yet, so I will try to spend some time reading a bit more about it all. My journey is still in a very early stage and there is a lot to be learnt!

Hi guys, this thread has been fantastic, but I'm still wary of sizing on the inexpensive Herring Knightsbridge. I have a slightly Neanderthal foot width, and take a 9.5EE in the AE PA (whose last seems narrower than most). What would you suggest on the Knightsbridge, an 8G?

 

Thanks!

Paul

Hi Paul,
I have one pair of Knightsbrigde oxfords in Black calf, 8G and I cannot say they are much different from the shoes of a regular width.

For those that own AS for Herring, I'm curious there is a difference in the quality of the uppers for those from the 1966 line compared to the "regular (e.g., stitch aloft soles). I really don't mind the soles but I prefer the quality of the 1966 leather, which is pretty much similar to their Exclusive range (or close to it) from my experience. The non-Exclusive shoes made by AS (e.g., Bowen, J. Crew, etc.) do not have as nice uppers and do not age as well from my experience.

Any other thoughts?

That is an excellent question, and I'm also curious to hear opinions.

 

I have a few AS shoes, and the one thing that detracts me from getting Herring Shoes made by "who ever it is", is the question of quality. The 1966 or Premier lines are as expensive, or more, than any other good shoes on the market, so I always had that same doubt.

 

Are they, in the long run, worth the money?

I'm extremely happy with the 1966 range. One of the best bang when you're looking at the $500 price range. Personally I'd put them close to C&J HG line.

Here is a comparison between a AS for Herring 1966 single monk and AS for Paul Stuart (Stuart's Choice) double monk:

Yes indeed

Considering the price point, I am sure PS/SC will have better leather to 1966. Interestingly i have the same sweeping monk from Herring and the leather is superb.
