    Leather shoes

    Why is it so difficult to find shoes with leather soles nowadays?

    Is this a rhetorical question?

    Because people now prefer diamonds...?

    As in leather on the bottom with the tread?
    Because there are much better materials.

    ​Thanks, l know house prices have quadrupled didn't realise it applied to shoes too.

    Loake's are also quality shoes. You can find them in Debenhams, watch out for sales. A word from the owner blog.loake.co.uk/a-d…nd/

    It isnt hard to find them, but they aren't cheap since they are made properly rather than just being a lump of plastic glued on.

    The best bet used to be to visit the factory shops in the northampton area. I bought loads of shoes from Crocket and Jones when I lived down there.
    Northampton was the centre of the british shoe manufacturing industry and the best shoes are still made there.

    You have to buy from the more expensive real shoemakers - Jermyn st in London is a good start.

    Try Amazon, they sell Samuel Windsor, which are hand made and most (if not all) have leather soles.
