Just received two beautiful shoes from Herring!
The first one is spectacular! May even make a dandy out of Andy!
- Tweed and Chestnut
- Lining — Full Leather
- Sole — Goodyear Welted Leather sole
- Heel — Leather 1/4 Rubber Tip
- Last — 2003 Last / classic
- Origin — UK Herring by Cheaney
Herring Exford uses the classic 2003 last, making a soft toe shape and slim fit, perfect for this style of shoe. We have used our exclusive tweed, manufactured by the historic Fox Bros, and the finest chestnut calf to give this style a country look.
Not many loafers can claim to be as at home in the city as they are in the country, but Exford is stylish in any environment.
A matching tweed belt and luggage range are available to complement your wardrobe.
2003 is a classic rounded toe last.
This is a standard fitting shoe so you can confidently order your normal UK size.
I worked with Herring Customer Service on the fit and right size for both shoes. They are outstanding and can really help you get the right size.
Murlo driving Moccasin
The other shoe was the Murlo driving moccasin.
Murlo is a classic, hand-stitched, driving moccasin style.
Made to the true moccasin construction using the finest tumbled grain leathers. Great as a driving moccasin, summer casual or slipper around the house.
- Lining — Full Leather
- Sole — Driving Sole
- Heel — Rubber Heel
- F – Medium fit sizes
- Origin — Portugal
- Category — Herring Casuals
Leather shoes from Herring include a shoe horn, shoe bags, and shoe polish in right color for those shoes!
Again these fit great right out of the box. I wore them for a day and their isn’t even a hint of a wrinkle in the upper. Due to both the right size and the style.
Herring Merton Shoes
My latest Herring Shoes are the Herring Merton, made in England, Tassel Loafers in Chestnut Calf with wingtips!
These are made for Herring by Barker on last 69, with full leather lining, Goodyear Welted leather sole, leather heel with 1/4 rubber tip. Beautiful shoes!
I’ve been dealing with Herring Shoes since 2002 and always received great service and the finest shoes at excellent prices.
Herring Shoe’s prices are already incredibly low but they have some great deals for AskAndy Members!
Beautiful shoes, great selection, these folks are great to deal with and the shipping is fast.
Herring Shoes History/Background
Herring Shoes is an English family business which was started in 1966 by Richard Herring.
Their goal is to provide top quality shoes from English manufacturers with service to match, through their website and retail shops.
They feature their own ‘Herring’ brand of footwear which is tailored to today’s needs with fantastic styles and top quality, created from years of inside knowledge of the English handcrafted shoe trade.
Over the years Herring Shoes have built close relationships with many of the Northampton manufactures working directly with Mr Andrew Loake, William Barker and Jonathan and William Church.
Adrian, the managing Director of Herring shoes, worked in the Barker factory for a period to learn in detail the constructions & craft of English handmade shoes.
The Herring range is made to the exact needs of their customers and by working direct with the factories they can achieve unique styles.
Sometimes they use existing stock models and improve on the specification by adding additional features, changing sole units or sourcing higher quality leathers for the uppers.
On other occasions they have the opportunity to create their own individual designs and styles which set Herring Shoes, and their customer apart from the crowd.
Plus they offer customers outstanding quality and service by using their direct connections with the factories.
