The blog is now restored and fully functional again, and things hereby continues as usual with a look at some interesting season sales. A lot of British stuff on the list this time.
The online giant Mr. Porter has a lot of interesting shoes on sale this winter. Selected models from brands like Edward Green, Viberg, Tricker’s, Heschung, George Cleverley, Church’s and others are reduced by between 30-40%. Clearly limited sizes, however, so you need to have some luck.
Manufacturers who have their own factories and run online sales can often have quite a nice discount, as is the case with Cheaney where it’s -30% on a lot of models. Including several varieties of black plain cap toe oxfords, which may be an idea to turn to when it’s reduced in price since for many they may not be the shoe you use the most and want to spend most on, while it’s a model that everyone needs to have. They also have many women’s shoes on sale.
Another UK brand with sales currently on are Grenson, which has up to 70% off on selected models both, both for men and women. Not least those who like a bit rougher and more casual models can find something nice here.
One could almost do a copy/paste of the previous. However the sale amount at Tricker’s is a bit lower, -40%, but the range is good and among other things really nice derby brogue boots in various colors are now available at good prices.
The Italian Antonio Meccariello, who launched his online store last year, offers both a 10% discount on the entire range with the code 133, but also has several models in an outlet section with some reduced prices on different samples and such. Especially those in size UK8,5 (or rather UK8, since most of Antonio’s lasts are slightly smaller in size) can find some goodies.
As usual, a solid sales at the British online store Herring Shoes. Above all, the models in their large range of Private Label shoes in different price ranges, which are made by among others Barker, Loake, Cheaney and Alfred Sargent. It’s between 30-50% discount, and there is also some subs making the supply extra large.
Herring’s biggest competitor Pediwear also has a relatively large season sale, although there’s a bit lower level of reductions in general. In return there are a lot of attractive brands and models included, like several models from Alfred Sargent and Carmina, who in many cases also are available in many sizes.
Shipton & Heneage
British shoe store Shipton & Heneage has a slightly different sale this year, with a 10% on the entire range. Even better prices on already quite affordable shoe, in other words. Shipton’s shoes made by, among others, Crockett & Jones and Cheaney. They also have a regular sales section with greater reductions of between 20-30%.
New & Lingwood
Jermyn Street-based New & Lingwood have had it a bit messy with their shoe section in recent years, where they tried around a bit between different suppliers in Northampton and also for a while sold Stefano Bemers RTW among other things. Now it has all been cleaned up and streamlined with a more premium range of shoes made and one a bit cheaper which both I think are made by Cheaney. Some of these are now on sale and are reduced by about 30%.
