Yes. The Langer & Messmer Brand itself has some great premium shoes in their collection.

 

Obviously out of my affordable price range

Have you checked the different lines of L&M?
I think you could afford their entry range.

Ahh my fault... However, it's a German brand but it's made in Italia ?!? 

And I wonder Gummiabsatzfleck means Goodyear or not?

Who makes the L&M shoes? They're goodyear welted.

I have not handled the shoes myself, but as far as I know they are made in Italy and goodyear welted.
I don't know by whom though.
Gummiabsatzfleck means rubber heel quarter.

I think somebody should open a thread for German shoes brands and we bring back this thread for Loake. I just make some searches and find some affordable German shoes. The problem is that I do not understand almost what they are saying in styleforum version Germany (stilmagazin.com) :(

So depending on how well the shoes fit the break in time may be quite long. Mine in fact is just starting to show mercy on my feet after a few months. Otherwise they make terrific shoes! smile.gif and yes I was between sizes and I opted for the smaller shoes so that is to blame too.

I wish Herring would make that George boot in something other than black.
Burgundy would be great.

Hi guys,

Just received my previously ordered Cannon 7.5F in tan color, or better to say coloUr since these shoes are from UK, from HerringShoes.

 

Color: 

I originally ordered them in dark brown color, but they weren't in stock. I booked one pair ( shall be in stock again only in 8-10 weeks(!) ), hence to avoid such a long waiting, after week or two I proposed to HerringShoes to sell me these shoes in tan color, in case they have them in stock. The main issue was that actually these shoes weren't represented in tan color on HerringShoes, but since their service are great so they somehow got them directly from Loake, even as I said before they weren't mentioned on their website in tan color. In live Cannon looks even better than on photos from Loake. They are a little darker and color seems deeper.

 

Shoe fit:

Again, as with Gladstone before, I'm a little confused.

Actually they fit my feet well (right now, in the morning), but as anyone knows feet on the evening hours a little increases, hence I afraid that they will be too tight. Does anybody know how tight shoes on capital last should be? (My other pair from Loake, Gladstone, are based on swing last, hence I can't compare)

The Cannon is a beautiful shoe both in Tan and Dark Brown. I find the Capital Last to be quite comfortable, not too tight and with a "roomy" toe box. If you have narrow feet you can probably go down 1/2 a  size.

Hi,

Yes it's indeed beautiful shoe, however I think I should go 1/2 size up (from 7.5F to 8F).

Yesterday I went home late at night and decided to try Cannon when my feet are swollen after all daily walking. They are very tight in toe area and a little squeeze big toes. So I think maybe go half size up? How big will be difference? I made some scheme while red line is my natural feet line before I put these shoes, as you can see (at the evening hours) in big toe are leg is a little bigger than shoe border. Any advice?

Anyone?

Price is ~same for both, so it's not second quality or anything like that...

There is no such thing as a Badminton 2 by Loake.

They look the same to me, I have some Loake shoes marked as Tweed 2, why don't you ask Loake?
