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;
