Wondering if anybody has used these shoes / this company?


I have used the company with no problems. I have just placed an order.

Just ordered 2 pairs. Hopefully they will be better quality than the shoes I buy from Next. Thanks OP.

Can only imagine how uncomfortable these shoes are.

Bought - unfortunately I can't wear slippers for work.

Avoid at all cost. Shoes from here look nothing like the pictures, are poorly made, uncomfortable and very heavy. Customer service from the company is awful too.

Is that based on self experience or another negative buzz

Past experience. I still have the offending pair. Was going to send them to a clothes/shoe bank but I wouldn't want subject anyone to the pain - they are that bad. Just reminded me to throw them away - thanks.

Terrible quality. Avoid at all costs.

Agree with the other posters. Total cr.@p with hugely inflated prices, which are always discounted.

Bought 2 pairs of Oxford shoes from here a few months back. Very good quality, very comfortable (only in an office so not walking miles). Really look the business and will last a long time with a bit of polish.

Reviews on the site itself say similar things. Not sure what shoes the above posters bought but they can't have been the same ones I have!

My experience suggests your hopes will be cruelly dashed.

I agree, the shoes I ordered went straight back for a refund

Goodyear welted ≠ quality

Two pairs, brogue and oxford, fell apart within six months - sole actually separated from upper, so poorly made.

After all sorts of hassle eventually both pairs replaced - replacements also fell apart - Never again!

That's my honest review, take it or leave it - not interested in arguing about it.

Terrible shoes. Uncomfortable and poor quality. That's my experience.

Ive had 4 pairs and all have been good

These are the worst quality shoes. The soles fall apart!

thats me out

Think I'll send mine back as soon as I receive them. Shame as they looked decent enough.

Try to google " Northampton factory shoe shops" it should bring up church's and crocket and jones plus others, you can save some serious money and get hand made quality shoes, I have bought some cheap broages before and they don't last.

Yeah but even from the churches factory shop you are looking at 200 quid plus, so you would hope there decent!

These are poorly made shoes.

If you can afford Church's shoes, buy them.

You can send them back and have them restored like new for £100.

I used to buy them when I worked in the city, but I just buy Loake shoes now.

So, it depends how often you're going to be wearing the shoes and for which purpose.

Edit. Cheaney shoes are also good value.

Echoing what others have said I brought 2 pairs of shoes through a group on from this company. They were massively reduced according to the groupon.

Leather quality was terrible. Sole was coming loose on arrival! Absolutely stunk of glue. Really poor quality shoes. As others have said save up some money and buy some good shoes. We have some excellent shoe makers in the uk.

“The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that'd still be keeping his feet dry in ten years' time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet."

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes 'Boots' theory of socioeconomic unfairness.

Banned
