    Hey guys, first post on the thread. I'm looking to buy a new pair, somewhere in the premier or classic line.

    Does anyone have experience with both the Cheany made Herring Premier shoes and Meermin Linea Maestro? Currently the prices are comparable with the free shipping and 10% codes so I would like to get your thoughts.

    Thanks.

    Herring has better service, and quality more reliable than Meermin, I rather take high quality goodwear than average hand welt.

    Do you have them in brown or oxblood? I've been eyeing the oxblood for some time...

    I have two pairs of Herring Cheaneys (11028 and 2003 lasts). The Burgundy Raleighs are probably my favourite pair despite it not fitting my toes very well (a wee short). I find their quality pretty good and shine up very well. I also find that they are quite light compared to others in my collection which makes them a joy to walk in. It was the first thing I noticed. It's a good shoe for the price despite not being a favourite on SF. Now, the Herring AS are a step up and are better quality. Also unfortunately more dear and I find them heavier than the Herring Cheaneys (better/thicker leather is the likely answer). If you can save up for it, the Oxblood Drake is a darn good looking shoe. If you manage to get a good discount code and you're looking, best not hesitate as they won't last long. Oxblood as a colour is more versatile too and can pair with more colours. Suggest you contact Herring for the sizing advice beforehand. I've purchased 3 times from Herring and haven't been disappointed, especially their delivery which is quick and it goes to PO Boxes!

    Don't have a LM Meermin but have been very keen on the plum museum mainly for the leather colour. Hopefully the shoe will fit well when the trigger is pulled. Good luck!

    p.s. I recall wurger has the oxblood.

    EDIT: 3 pairs, the 3rd is the 205 last which unfortunately I sized up half and is loose, nothing an insole couldn't fix however.

    Thanks for the responses guys.

    Unfortunately the Drakes are out of my price range and I have a pair of burgundy cap toes already (AE park Ave in shell). I'm looking at some of the cheaper AS for Herring, specifically the Edward II and the Cheaney Chamberlain.

    I've been wanting a black adelaide cap toe for awhile, just not sure how I feel about the Edward having a medallion. I'll think about it some more and post pics if I pull the trigger.

    I bought two pairs of shoes from them in the last few weeks. Delivery times are incredible, especially given that I'm in Australia. It takes longer to get a book posted from Amazon in America.

    Do you own shoes with the rubber soles that sell on these websites?

    Excuse me then. They are danite but they also refer to them as 'rubber'.

    The George boots are made by Loake to the standard of their 1880 range. Their top quality line.
    Adrian Herring might even say better than the 1880 range.

    I don't have them myself but do have other Herring boots, Gosforth chukka boots, made by Loake on the same last, but with Dainite soles.
    I think they're great.
