    Any good? There are a few on e-bay, look Loake in quality.

    There's also a nice looking Balmoral called the Hudson for sale.

    As far as I know, there isn't an online shop. The only place I've seen them is on e-bay. The balmoral is currently for sale here. Not sure if shoes are made by or made for JS.

    I notice that they are offered by Abba in Vienna. A nicely-styled line of Austrian shoes-- sort of like Vass but slightly housebroken.

    I'll try to find out more next week.

    Was in Winners in Toronto today and they have this shoes on sales for $199:

    http://shop.johnspencershoes.com/epa...cts/JS-05-0001

    They are made in Spain in cherry/oxblood colour, the upper is patent leather finished.

    Same shoes here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/John-Spencer.../dp/B002R5AJQG

    Are they worth $199 CDN (~$199 USD)?


    I bought a pair of cap-toes in Lane Crawford here in HK for a little under $3000HKD. These are my first nice shoes ever for work, so far so good. It's obviously not as good as the bigger names, I had this and a pair from Fratelli Rossetti to choose from and I got these.

    I have a pair of there chelsea boots and the skin is of low quality and the fit is bad. I would not recommend them. In this price segment i like Barker or Loake better, but i dont know if thay have a boot in the same style.
