London Shoe Shops

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some advice about where to go shoe shopping in London. I know Selfridges have recently overhauled their shoe department so will be looking there.

I'm specifically looking for some black oxfords and brown/tan oxfords/half brogues.

Price wise I'm looking for somewhere around the 200GBP mark so Church's etc. are out of the window.

Any advice on independent shoe shops that might stock something appropriate? Chains like Russell and Bromley generally have thin pickings when it comes to shoes which aren't fashion forward.

Any advice would be much appreciated as I've only recently moved to London.

The famous new shoe hall In Selfridge's is only for women's shoes, unfortunately. The men's dept. is the same, and £200 won't go very far there, I'm afraid. The Jermyn St. usual suspects (Trickers, Crockett and Jones) might be worth a look. Though they tend to start in the high £200's, you never know. A bit cheaper is the Grenson shop just outside Liverpool St. station. Cheaney's also have a new shop in the City, but I don't know about their prices as I haven't had a chance to visit yet.

You can get Cheaneys for £200 RRP

Austin Reed on Regent Street have Church's & Cheaneys on sale, both under £200. They had the Consul model (Church's) for £193 and I saw Cheaneys for £135.

Thanks guys. Ended up going down to Jermyn Street and had a look around - came back with some Barker Anniversary edition oxfords (not shown on their website for some reason). Very happy with the purchase - would have been interested in the Consul's actually but I find Church's come up wide even in an F width size.

Thanks again!

Buying shoes in london is nto a good idea if you want to save.

Go to Bicester (Oxford) or Northampton factory shops

Of course if all u want is a pair of 200£ shoes it is not worth the bother/cost. If you want more than one pair or more expensive shoes trust me and get going.

PS- You can also get some nicely prized Zegna /Ferragamo/Bally Scribes in Bicester which you cant in fogey london or northampton- and trust me italian looks so much better that only the english and anglo-inclined americans would go for english shoes in a similar prize range

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
