I think you'll find them very versatile. It doesn't all have to be Cleverleys, Lobbs etc. In fact I've tried a number of those high end brands only to find many don't fit or I don't like the lasts. Basically now I have settled on the C and J 341 - the Westfield and Sydney - and the Loake Capital, which has a nice soft square toe. I have a nostalgic attachment to Loakes. They have lasted many years in the past and the current bunch I have will probably see me out. Bought five from Pediwear recently and with no VAT, customer loyalty of 31 pounds a shoe discount and free shipping to Australia worked out a total of about $1000. Plus they fit me beautifully.
