Gothem – Black Suede
It all started with a simple idea; we wanted more men to discover the refined feeling of handcrafted shoes. For this to happen we needed to change the shoe business from the ground up.
The pair of shoes that I bought were quite lovely. Really Good fit. Well designed and crafted. Rather stylish if I May say so. If I were to accompany Gandalf the gray to the house of Elrond, in an Autumn Afternoon I’ll be wearing these shoes.
Lovely weight and build on the shoe. The finish is solid and the suede deaign is beautiful. Lacing up is a joy; you pull the two ends of the lace and the shoe tightens up. Sounds really basic but the amount of shoes I have bought from other shoe retailers and this doesn't happen, you can end up re adjusting the laces everytime you put on the shoes.
The 4 star rating is due to the shoe sizes avail are for narrow feet - as discovered. I have slightly wider feet so the fit is quite tight on the sides. Having the option for a wider fit - likes Church's shoes - that would be amazing, but equally not a show stopper for me.
I’ve been watching these for a very long time, and finally decided to buy them. I am so pleased with my purchase, as usual the service from Myrqvist was great, fast shipping and neatly packaged. The shoes are super comfortable right from the start, and the size / fit is as expected and as their other models in my opinion.
A high quality pair of boots for a good price, sleek and traditionally stylish. Feel like they are made to last. Soft leather interior. Reasonably roomy for formal shoes.
