A couple of years ago I got fed up with work shoes lasting a short time and generally looking a bit cheap, which to be fair they were. So I treated myself to a pair of loakes which were at least twice what I had previously paid. Any way after 3 weeks of excruciating breaking in, they are far and away the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I am now firmly in the camp of spending more up front saves you in the long run.
So I am now in the market for another pair and I am wondering what other brands are Out there. Any recommendation? Btw Church’s are out - £500 a pair??? Even the Ayatollah might pause for a second or two when present3d with that price tag.
