I recently took delivery of several pairs of shoes from Shipton & Heneage. Two pairs are branded Alfred Sargent, while one is a pair of Shipton & Heneage branded 'Renoir'. I am finding the Renoir a joy to wear compared to all my other shoes, including the Sargents. They are lighter, and yet feel sturdier. They are a narrower fit, which fits me a lot better than the Sargents, which I am finding comparatively roomy. I also think they look more elegant.

I would like to know who makes the Renoir so that I can try other models from the manufacturer.

Many thanks in advance as always gentlemen.

Edit: The Renoir can be seen here. The following is handwritten inside the shoe 'Renoir 2 YO138 2003 F/8'. The sole says 'Benchmade in England'.

I you could post a link to the shoes or even a picure or two it would help us identify them.

Alternatively could you post the details of the writing that is printed/written into the inside of the shoe?

Picking up on the officers' shoes reference, I know that Sanders/Regent make shoes for the forces, although I'm not sure of the level of quality. You might try e-mailing S&H with the question - they tend to be quite forthcoming about such things. Certainly they have confirmed to me before the manufacturer of a particular pair of shoes in their range.

Anthony.
