They look like they are probably in the Loake class but at that price, why chance it? Get something tried and true like the Loake Chelseas, which will be cheaper during one of the many sales or go with this:

Stay clear!

Maybe there was a time when John White produced reliable shoes. Not any more. It's the only English firm to produce Blake-stitched shoes as a cost cutting exercise. Not talking about the cheap and nasty leather.

You better stick with Loake in that price range; (Loake's prices are some 20%above John White's).

Actually the shoe on eBay is overpriced. It might be a Second;
