A monk strap shoe should be in every man’s wardrobe, as well as being renowned for its comfort it has also seen a resurgence recently that we love. The Dylan is a monk strap with a difference though, it is made using a Moc Croc leather which is available in brown and black that really makes a statement. It is on a rounded toe last and is Goodyear Welted. We believe these look best with a suit or jeans with a slim leg opening to show off the shoe.
The Dylan is available now here for Â£275.
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.
You should always look after your Herring shoes to ensure they last you a long time, maybe even a life time. Here we look at a few of our shoe care products!
Now with a high quality pair of shoes the one thing you should invest in is a good pair of shoe trees. Shoes trees allow a shoe to dry in the original shape after wear. We have a selection of great shoe trees which you can find here. The Herring cedar tree (Â£35) is pictured below.
We also have a great range of shoe care kits and valet boxes. All of which include wax polishes and horsehair brushes.
