    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
