This month Herring shoes featured in Men’s Health. The shoe featured was the Harvard II, a shoe made by Cheaney in Northampton. When it comes to saddle shoes, ours is really unique. It has a beautifully crafted medallion on the toe and a unique colour and texture combination such as white suede and brown calf leather.
The article in Men’s Health is based around getting the Gatsby style right. We agree the Gatsby look is one which can be tricky to put together, but when done effectively it is a real head turner. At Herring we have a great range of two-tone shoes perfect for getting that Gatsby look! You can find them here.
