Some of you may know this shoe, some of you won’t. But it was the shoe that made Brunello Cuccinelli more famous on a worldwide level as upper echelons of society made it their favorite shoe of choice a few years back. It first came around about 4-5 years ago and everyone that had some money owned a pair of these (at least in Europe). They had the pretty pricetag of about £800 if I remember correctly (might have actually been more), which was insane, to say the least (but not surprising). But if you didn’t have the spare £800 lying around, you were not going to grab a pair…..until now.
Stemar, an Italian brand popular in England (virtually unheard of in the US), decided to take it upon themselves to remake this famous slip-on chukka boot sneaker-like style. And only for $289, as seen on the Herring Shoes website. I always actually liked the model. I found it a nice way between a smart and casual shoe, being able to dress nicely but be in casual comfort at the same time. But I never had a spare $1000 to drop on a pair of shoes either. So it’s nice to see that Stemar is offering a version of their own at a way more affordable price and for Herring to be distributing it to the masses with the strong reach as a shoe retailer.
And on top of that, Herring Shoes right now is offering a discount to NHS workers (of the UK) of 40% off with the code NHS2020. Now some of you might be wondering why it’s just to the NHS and I presume that Herring was thinking about rewarding the hospital workers out there selflessly working during this trying time, but imagine that this would apply to anyone actually sacrificing themselves for the greater good so don’t be afraid to give it a go!
***Edit*** They made it so that it only applies if you live in the UK, for as of March 23rd. Tomorrow to be opened up to the US as well (March 24th). For all other hospital workers, please email email@example.com to get the code to work for your cart
