Thank you for sharing your thoughts on shoes. I am new to this fantastic forum. I live in Wesseling a small town between Bonn and Cologne. Germany has many exclusive retail stores that have a great selection of Italian and English shoes. I have experience with some of the brands mentioned in the list -everything from Lattanzi to Edward Green. I no longer buy John Lobb's because I think they have lost their focus and are more dedicated to mass production in my opinion. It also have tried Benson's. I see that someone from the production house has made some comments. I bought two pairs of Benson's at a store in Hamburg. The shoes are not very expensive and have a nice Italian styling. I am very disappointed with the quality. The leather wrinkles too much on the sides for both pairs and the soles on one shoe has already come off. If the person from Benson's reads this, it is possible to get reimbursed or to fix these shoes? Please let me know.
