    Hi,

    Looking to get a pair of Windsor Smith Storm-welted brogues in brown for smart casual wear.

    Keen to know what you all think of the durability.

    Are these good value or should I spend more?

    I'm in Australia btw.

    Thanks Willis, great article! Will have to assess my options in WA, or buy some on holiday [​IMG]

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I recently purchased some Loake's online, then had to resell at a loss due to getting the size wrong. Might try Meermin next, which can be had for around $300 delivered (depends on the AUD vs USD). Really important to read up on the sizing differences between brands and even lasts within those brands.

    Bugger, that sucks. Someone got a bargain though! A bit afraid of buying shoes online, true what you say about learning up on different brands sizing. The Aussie dollar isn't helping with overseas purchases right now either.
