Obviously not. I thought they will last for at least couple of months. One pair £80, they start to look like sh*** after 4 months of wearing 3 times a week. Second pair discounted £100 to 60 look horrible because of the cracking leather after wearing for 2 months 2 times a week. I was noy expecting miracles but at least something that I could wear for may be a year? This whole situation forced me to look online for a brand worth buying. My budget is up to £150 per pair of shoes. As far as I understand the ones I should buy are Loake, Barker and Cheaney. Any other brands in this price range? Also, I am not sure what is the best place to buy shoes now. Online? Oxford street? Travel somewhere closer to the factories? Regards. Wojtek. P.S. Sorry for the typos. Tried to do my best. Im on my phone now.
