The Cheaney Avon is now live on our site. We have a trip to the Cheaney factory planned very soon, so expect a report with pics and videos....
Yes of course, the clue is there for the observant amongst us! NPS (who make Solovair) are coming out with quite a range of in stock styles which will very soon be available on our website. In addition to these there are a range of Solovair stock styles planned too. In the mean time we have those monkey boots on our shelves and waiting to go. I'll add them to the website later today. And of course momone if you would like a pair we can offer you 10% as promised - thanks for your reply.
Oh no! Sorry to hear that!
Well I wonder whether our new footwear search filter facility will help you find another pair which will fit?
An update to this part of the site has been due since we over hauled the site design last year. We hope you find it useful - it should help you find what you are looking for a lot more quickly.
Any feedback will be gratefully received.
Got my 2nd order in from Pediwear!!
As much as I used to love AE, my feet simply doesn't meet their style (nor sizing)...also questionable build quality with my recent AE Malones.
The Loakes replaced my AE Daltons and I never looked back. The dainite sole has been extremely handy over this past winter. 8 months now and the boots still look good as new with minor wear.
Got my Barkers in today (4 days to ship from London to California !!!).
Ordered it in same size as my Loakes and it's a perfect fit. Between my Loakes/Barkers, I'm pretty much wrapped up for summer boots.
I've given up on AE now and will stick to Loakes/Barkers and Pediwear mainly as the cost is almost the same (if not better with discounts) but the fit/leather is more forgiving and better cuts, IMO.
Thank you for posting the pics, the boots look wonderful. It is considered to bring bad luck if you put shoes on the table in the UK to put shoes on the table. Is it just a UK think or do similar superstistions exist over the pond.
@pediwear I'm looking for a budget pair of brown oxfords and came across your Pediwear Craig MTO. Can you provide any information regarding sizing? Unfortunately I don't have any English shoes to compare against; my only dress shoes to this point are both Allen Edmonds on the same last. I know the standard advice is to just size down one full size for UK sizing, but do you have any more specific info to that shoe?
Is there a reasonable option for returning the shoes via mail if the sizing doesn't work out?
This particular last is known to be rather narrow, from what I understand. The standard advice I've read is to size down 1/2 a size, but go up in width. I take a 9E (wide) in it, and the fit is very good. I also briefly had a pair of Kent Wang oxfords, which I think are a more "standard" last, and a 9.5 fit fairly well, so it sounds like that advice is certainly accurate, at least for me. I have a very flat foot though, with a low instep.
Thanks for taking the time to advise me.
Thank you for letting us know about the Carmina you have bought from us, we are pleased to hear they have been received so well!
Watch our for more styles this Autumn!
