It's on the herring shoes site.
Hm, my toes sit a lot back, doesn't look like the ball of your feet is sitting on the widest part of the shoe.
So it's mean that I have to go at least 1/2 size up?!
Not listed on the loake site and looks exactly like the regular Badminton. ?!
Not necessary if you have narrow feet, which only you will know.
Thus my post earlier saying it's probably the same style.
Are you normally an F fit? Looks like you could use a G fit to accomodate the width properly. I don't think Loake makes the Cannon in a G fit but you might find it in Herring Shoes own range. On the other hand, a 1/2 size up might very well solve the problem. A little more room in the toe and a little wider, but beware that the widest part of the shoe will be even more forward which might have the opposite effect.
where do i find these in NYC?
As fair as I know, Badminton 1 was available only in Tan grain, replaced by the Badminton 2 available only in Dark brown grain.
For what it's worth, the only comparision I have in the database from Loake's Swing to Capital also uses half a size difference.
So, if you're wearing a shoe on the Swing last in UK 7.5-F, you're probably better off using UK 8.0-F for the Capital last.
They primary difference between the Shoemaker and 1880 shoes is attention to detail (eg fancy squiggly bits on the sole!). I have several of both and and also "Design" Loakes. There is a difference when you drop "down" to the L1 range, but they're still good, everyday shoes and better than average. Loake are very careful to tell you where shoes are made, but my experience is that their Indian operation is pretty good.
I'm looking for a pair of sleek looking Loake oxfords in Burgundy,Oxblood or Dark brown.
My Allen Edmonds in D width are just too narrow...
Any recommendation? Just tired of the blobby and shapeless AE lasts.
Aldwych for dark brown; Strand for burgundy.
Plus buckingham in dark drown
New burgundy strands are in:
