Bressler Goodyear Welted Derby Shoe
DESCRIPTIONA lace-up Derby shoe with a modern profile. Built with quality calf leather for a timeless finish, the pointed toe adds a sharp edge to your suits. Resting on a traditional Goodyear Welted sole, the Bressler Loake shoe is made to last.
I have been a Jones customer for some years. The branch manager even recognises me as a returning customer when i enter her store.
Back in April 2018 i purchased a pair of Black Ridley shoes, In August 2018 i purchased a pair of casual deck shoes and this March 2019 i purchased a pair of BRESSLER GOODYEAR WELTED DERBY SHOE .
They are the poorest fit and quality shoe i have ever purchased from Jones.
The leather is so thin they have had to stiffen it to the point that there is no flexibility in the shoe which makes then incredibly uncomfortable to wear. In addition to that the sole is not 100% leather which is the least i would expect from a pair of work shoes at £170.
I wore mine for 3 days in an attempt to give them time to soften but they did not. In the end i had to stop wearing them and chose to go to a Jones competitor and purchase a new pair of shoes for almost the same price.
I believe that unlike all other quality shoes i have ever bought from Jones these were made to a purpose budget and it shows, they are too uncomfortable to wear and are of poor quality, all of which i did not expect given that Loakes had allowed their name to be put to them.
Sadly, I no longer purchase my shoes from Jones.
