Matisse Makes an Impression - Herring Shoes
Landing a Herring
I've been scooping up loafers for the summer months. I'll be showing you some from ready-to-wear Lobb soon, but here are Matisse from everyone's best kept shoe secret, Herring Shoes.
I don't know what it is about these shoes, but I don't ever want to take them off. I also want to reposition all the mirrors at Tweed Towers to floor level. It might be the real thing, chaps. But I love them equally, Lefty and Righty. I'll need to be anaesthetised to have them removed.
And what an excellent service Herring provide. I won't go into the details of the saga I made for myself landing these Herrings - in short I'm a dullard and they're a very understanding bunch. Based in Kingsbridge, Devon, I can see why Herring attract such loyal custom. I'm thinking about one of the wholecut styles next.
The Matisse is made for Herring's Premier range by Cheaney of Northampton, England, "with 160 operations, from the hand cutting to the hand burnishing". A comfortable summer shoe in soft calf leather. And good travel companions. Watch out for their walk-on part in the continuing articles on Condensed Madrid.
