Your show has a lot of spectators
This is my first post here. Long time lurker. Herring's quality and service has forced me into the sunshine. An absolutely fabulous company with great service, shoes, and shipping. They are one of the best shops I've dealt with over the past 20 years. I will be a repeat customer for certain. - Tom
iIdk if the conversation in this thread survived the transfer to the new site.
However, I had a question about Herring's casual shoes.
Ex this one made by Herring in Portugal?
These trainers are made by Carlos Santos. Their shoes usually have very good price-quality ratio. Their trainers feature Bologna construction with glued outer soles (sewn in the toe area only).
Sorrry for my late reply but does that mean they are recraftable?
Unfortunately, I don't know. Probably it's possible to resole them, but I doubt that Carlos Santos or Herring Shoes offer this service...
From my understanding; the Church's family, after having sold-out to Prada in 2012, missed the business so much that one of the brothers bought Cheaney. It seems they needed a foothold in the industry.
As to the quality of Cheaney, blah. I made the mistake of purchasing a boot - I like to try different makers - and was only disappointed. It was not that they used crust leather on a boot (but I do question why), but that the finished calf that was present simply folded over the sole.
I find Cheaney to be decent, fairly consistent with AS' mainline stuff. I have yet to see the Imperial but I've heard that it's nice. It's unfortunate that Herring discontinued their 1966 line shoes from AS as I found them to have just enough detail with a fair price point.
What do you mean "folded over"? Like veldtschoen construction?
No. perhaps a poor choice of phrase. They simply lacked structure.
Separate names with a comma.
