Herring Shoes

Olly Murs and the X Factor finalists wear Herring!

11 December 2012

This weekend saw the X Factor finalists and Xtra Factor presenter Olly Murs wearing Herring Shoes. Both runners up, Jahmene Douglas and Christopher Maloney have been fans of the brand from the very beginning of the live shows, wearing Herring in almost every performance. Olly Murs wore the Attlee and Chaucer II on both Saturday and Sunday evening’s shows.

The Herring Attlee is a stylish double monk-strap shoe on the elongated 11028 last for a bespoke feel.  Handmade in Northampton, England, they embody all the artistry of English shoemaking. Few shoes are as on trend at the moment as double monks. Versatile enough to be worn with both suits and jeans, few shoes have quite the same sense of presence and playfulness as double monks. The Herring Chaucer II is a genuine wholecut shoe. The pinnacle of shoe making, this whole cut features fine calf leather, full leather lining and a Goodyear Welted sole. Perhaps the most difficult shoe to make as each one needs to be made from one perfect piece of unblemished leather. A scratch or miss cut during the making and the shoe and it has to be discarded.
