Well, I've worn them three days in a row to break 'em in, and I am extremely happy with them! I am not a cobbler, so I can't say much about the quality, but they look great, they're comfortable, and they're cheap.

Indeed. It's especially the case since CG leather will look much worse than full grain, but as far as I'm aware, there is no CG suede.

Sounds like exactly what I'm looking for - I don't want to put real money into something that will get a fair amount of abuse. Glad to hear they're working for you!

Thanks,
Hal

Bleachboy,
They do look nice, and now they're down to 50 bucks. Still, I read all of the reviews. One guy commented on the "plastic" heels, another said they're falling apart after a few wears, others remarked on the shoddy construction. It sounds like you're happy with them. Do any of the criticisms ring true, especially the one about the heels? I am considering a purchase but don't want to waste money. Oh, and is the fit true?

Picked up a pair of Church's Amersham (see www.church-footwear.com and then go to the "country" collection). They are full-brogue, danite sole, very nice construction, and come in a variety of colorways--teak, sigar, maracca, brown, mud; £360.

What shoes are you looking at? The ones I bought are still $158 (I just checked) and they have a Dainite sole. As to the construction, you know, I can't see anything that would indicate they would fall apart after a few years, much less a few wears. Also, yes, they fit true to size for me (9.5D).

I think you are looking at some other far crappier pair of shoes.

This is the link to the ones I bought.
