    Herring had the 1966 shoes for free not long back too! Man, 18 more days until August is over! Then I can let the itch for the Drakes go away quietly. [​IMG]

    Yes, if you check the Herring site you'll see that some of their shoes are made in Spain. Thanks for identifying John Spencer as their manufacturer.

    Ordered a pair or Herring Readings late in the day on Friday. Got a shipping notification Monday morning and they arrived via DHL in Louisville today. Fantastic turnaround.

    Indeed... not TNT... AFPOS could learn a thing or two from Herring. But you do pay for this one... All of my deliveries on anything with DHL have been spot on...

    Got my Herring Drakes today, fast shipping and usual good Herrings service as others have said. Shoehorn and burgundy polish included. Using the 20% off code though I would suggest these are seconds, some scuffs on one shoe, theres scratching on the base of one of them and both shoes appear to have small amount of panelling missing from the back heel. Overall minor issues that wouldn't necessarily bother me but you should set your expectations accordingly.

    edit: actually for the money the missing panelling on the back of the heel kind of annoys me looking at them now :(

    I assure you, these are not supposed to be seconds so I would send Herring a message about it.

    Yeah you are probably correct, just a bad set not necessarily connected to that code. I shot them an email and some pics hopefully their good service extends into resolving issues.

    Yeah hard to explain but on the heel at the side and back of the shoe, it appears to be constructed in layers/panels, well a cpl of rows of those have come away / peeled off. Anyway I shouldnt say anymore till I see how Herrings handles it, they've provided good service till this point so I don't want to give anyone a bad impression I only mentioned it at this juncture as I thought it may be related to that code.

    Osiris2012 - I had the same experience with Herring Kendals that I ordered with the coupon code. The medallion on the left shoe was off center and partially covered by the welt. I assumed it was due to the discount code, but I took pictures and sent them an email just to make sure.

    I got a response from Herring this morning and they informed me that these were, indeed, not supposed to be seconds. As an offer of goodwill, they're giving me 20% off my next purchase, if I'm willing to keep them, which is fine with me. Unfortunately, that 20% discount is just going to keep tempting me to spend more money on shoes [​IMG]

    Good to hear the service remains excellent! Still, the point is to keep dangling the carrot, no? [​IMG]
