    @Leaves , of course I agree in a way that makers are actually using the same type of leather from the same tannery. But to my knowledge some lower tier makers buy lower grade leather (from the same tannery) than top tier makers. And some tanneries (eg Weinheimer) are only used by high end makers because of their cost. Or is this not correct ?

    I'm going to have to do that soon with my Herring chukka boots, (made by Loake).
    Had thought the cost was £65, but I guess that was a few years ago.
    Does it include postage?

    Yes it used to be £65 but as with everything the price goes up every year. It is free postage and delivery on repairs.

    Still good value at £80, I think. I sent mine back via a local Loake stockist, which takes the 'hard work' out of it. It took around four weeks from drop off to collecting the repaired shoes.
