Haha thanks. Particularly like the red ones but don't think they'd match my uniform colour. I'm a size 12. I like the classic oxford style for work and they're quite hard to come by
Not a size 7 are you?(come up large - I take a 10, but I'm 10.5 in most, 11 in adidas!) http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_084010781460_-1 Or 7 or 9 - http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_084010718960_-1 8.5 wide? - http://www.afarleycountryattire.co.uk/shop/40-off-loake-202-shoes-full-brogue-black-size-8-5g/ Jones Bootmakers, John Lewis and HoF don't have sales on at present.

If I can find the same style shoe for less than £100 that's significantly better then I'd have them. Not saying these are overly great. It's just I had a certain expectation when buying shoes for only £37 and it's met them.
Ok, so I spent £69.99 in 2010 on a pair of black loake brogues for work. Still going strong, comfortable and support my foot well. Having used these shoes(SW), and others, I'm just trying to warn people of the false economy. If you wear them to work every day, that's getting on towards 2000 hours a year! It pays to look after yer toots :) Anyway, hope these feedbacks help others in their choices.
Yeah but they're £37.50. We're not talking about a pair of RM Williams.

quality shoes me dad has always bought from samuels Windsor and never had a problem . I even bought a pair of oxfords in black . Great shoes at a great price
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.
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.
Yeah but even from the churches factory shop you are looking at 200 quid plus, so you would hope there decent!
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.

flash sale, handmade brown leather brogues just £29.99 + p&p £35.44 only for 48 hours - Samuel Windsor£35.44
Only got my first set of SW shoes recently and so far quite impressed (although the sides of the sole do mark easily ..)
Always around this price. I've had a pair of these for a couple of years and they're okay... but they're not great. Previous comment about soles is correct.
2 pairs £75 off the more expensive shoes couple with the code SW10DISC and you get them at about £35 a pair delivered
The uppers on SW shoes are very good and last a while. However, in my experience the soles do not and a replacement leather sole costs more than the original cost of the shoe. You could buy two pairs of course!
Standard Delivery - UK - 3-4 Days £5.45
