Herring Elgin

The Herring Elgin is a gibson fronted longwing brogue. The longwing brogue was most popular in the 1970s in the USA but has seen a revival recently. The Elgin is available in a brown chromex leather which has a greasy lusture. Using a chromex leather gives the shoe a waxy rugged feel to it and the longwing design just adds to this, not to mention the dainite sole! What’s more, chromex leather can developed a really unique patina over time.

We also have the Erskin (chukka boot) in the Chromex leather which you can find here!

Bond magazine features Herring.

Style title Bond has featured Herring Shoes’ Sienna and Heath in their main fashion shoot. The Sienna and Heath form part of Herring’s beautiful loafer collection. The Sienna is classic hand-stitched tasseled loafer style. Made to the true Italian moccasin construction using the finest leathers. The Heath is a classic Penny loafer made from top grade calf leather with a full leather lining insole and Goodyear Welted leather sole. Loafers were originally house shoes explaining their relaxed air. Combined with a suit they seem almost rakish in comparison to Oxfords. So versatile, penny loafers even sit well with weekend staples like jeans, chinos, cargo pants and shorts. For those unfortunates who suffer dress down Fridays or a casual workplace environment consider incorporating a pair of brown suede or chestnut loafers into your work wardrobe. Thus endeth the lesson. Scroll down to see the full shoot…
