    99% sure that they are the same shoe - Sargent makes them for S&H.

    I ordered some shoes (a different model) from S&H several years ago, and was told that the model I purchased then was made by Sargent.

    I have seen the Sargents in person, and while I do not particularly like that style, they are very fine shoes. It is a cliche, but in my opinion, the pictures do not do the leather and the workmanship justice. I have 4 pair of other shoes in the premier exclusive range, and think they are fabulous.

    I am sure that the S&H and/or Sargent shoe is several times over a better shoe, but when I have thought about the 1950's look, I have been tempted by the Sanders "Blackwall."

    Hello,

    I have seen lots on info on where to get C&J shoes (e.g. P. Lal, etc). Where does one find Sargent shoes (esp Premium grade) at a discount? What outlets sell these shoes under the proper name?

    Thanks.

    I bought my Sargents at pediwear and International Shoe. You should be able to find them if you do a search.

    I think that they may be two of the cheapest on line sources for Sargents Premium grade under the Sargent name.
