Help ID'ing these English shoes

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I'm looking in my closet at my shoes last night, and I note the following:

 

I have 7x pairs of Church's, all bought at least 10 years ago when I was living/working in Europe:

 

- 2x pairs of Westbury black monk straps

- 1x pair of Sydney brown monk straps

- 1x pair of Sanford black lace-ups

- 1x pair of Wingate black lace-ups

- 1x pair of Presley black monk straps

- 1x pair of Westbury black suede monk straps (NB: going on B&S as soon as I'm allowed to post there)

 

- I have 2x pairs of "King Shoes", "hand crafted in England", in a brown suede monk strap, one model Harewood, one model Sandringham.

 

Heavy on the monk straps, I know.  And all bought before 9/11, when quick on/off became a plus...

 

Anyway, for the life of me I cannot find out who made the latter two pairs (King? doh).  I would like to find a darker brown lace-up model, and I really like the last on these shoes.

 

Any help finding out from whence they came would be appreciated.  I cannot even remember if I bought them in England, Spain, Holland....

Church's are Church's. Kings are Cheaney (Church's)

Hi Jim,

 

This shop (see URL below) sells your Kings. I have two pairs myself too (lace ups black calf monk shoe type Sandringham).

The shop offers a recrafting programme straight from the factory, it will cost you around 140 to 160 euros a pair if I'm not misinformed.

The shop is trustworthy.

 

Bye

Oscar
