These shoes were originally made for our friend Lee who was getting married last year. He wanted something very British, beautifully made and a pair of shoes he could wear all day without feeling like his legs were going to drop off. So in the Herbert brogues, I think that is something we have achieved. As soon as pictures emerged of these we got loads of people asking us for Lee’s brogues, so here they are.
The shoes are made from a beautiful corrected, nut brown leather that has been shined up to a treat. The shoes are lined in leather and here is the best bit… The shoes sit on a super comfy Solovair sole, meaning that they are super comfy straight out of the box. Solovair, were the original makers of the air suspended sole unit, so you really are wearing a bit of history!
Each pair comes with the famous words from my Grandma embossed into the sock liner of “I bet you didn’t get those from Tommy Balls.” A sentence she would often utter when I visited her wearing new shoes.
The shoes are made to order for your lovely feet, as a result can take up to 3 weeks to be made and delivered. We recommend going down a size from your normal trainer size, or if you normally wear grown up shoes then you know to do this already.
