Yeah not buying anymore from England either.
Some brands are clever : I recently received an email from Fred Perry (sorry not brogues related) explaining they now have a huge warehouse in EU so they can sell and send their goods like before, without any taxes...

I have only ever bought one pair of shoes from outside of UK,a pair of Bexley longwings this was a few years ago when the choice of longwings here was limited so UK ewas still part of EU and there was no problem.

I do have Paraboot,Mephisto,Heschung and Berwick 1707 shoes / boots but they were all bought from shops in UK.

tbh I dont think that I will buy from EU countries because of the taxes and delivery costs (same problems as buying from USA).
Probably it will be better to buy a more expensive MiE shoe and pay less for delivery than to buy from another country.

We knew that this would happen after Brexit and for those of us who wanted to get away from the EU it is a small price to pay.

I have really well executed pair of Bexley wholecuts, fullgrain leather, Goodyear welt bought at an incredibly low price. I also have a pair of their single monk straps that look as good as the Crockett and Jones version. Both bought in their Paris shops. There is a full size difference between my size for each pair.

I have also bought Spanish shoes in Madrid. I have more than enough shoes though, so I will not be personally affected. Berwick 1707 are still available cheap in this country from shops and they are great value.

I will not be paying a lot more for EU items so will probably do some substitution too.

Very nice, Trickers are quality and they really look the business.
No hidden join on the inside either. They seem to be out of stock after being on sale at good prices. Hopefully not a discontinued line.
