British online store Herring Shoes, as usual, runs its main sale for the year now a few weeks before Christmas, with dozens of shoes reduced by up to 50%. They themselves call it their biggest sale ever.


The feeling when surfing around on the sale is also that it is unusually large, even for being Herring. Lots of models discounted, stuff in all sizes, and usually substantial discounts. Being able to shop for shoes from Herring’s own range and Wildsmith, Carlos Santos, Loake, Church’s, Cheaney, Barker, Tricker’s and more for up to half the price is obviously lovely.

Below, I highlight some personal favourites in the sales offerings, but as I said, much more to find in the online store.

Herring Balfour is a timeless balmoral quarter brogue available in both dark brown and black, made by Cheaney for Herring. Reduced from about €430 to €250.

Nice full brogue oxford in a warm medium brown suede, from one of Herring’s cheaper own Goodyear welted ranges, the model is called Roborough. Reduced by 30% to €160.

Really gorgeous wholecut with floating medallion, Wildsmith Niven. Herring bought the rights to the name Wildsmith and has his finest own shoes under that name. Think they are still made by the Alfred Sargent factory. Costs €440 instead of €600.

Loake Lytham is a heavier chucka boot in grain leather with storm welt and Dainite sole. 30% discount, so now they are at €230.

Tricker’s classic boot Stow, here in reverse calf suede, but also available in many other different leather choices. Reduced by between 30-40% depending on leather choice.

Carlos Santos derby in grain leather, clearly nice, with single Dainite sole which makes it an excellent autumn and spring shoe. Reduced by 30% to SEK €230.
