Congrats, those shoes are awsome, is strange that they look so polished right out of the box, did you polished them? I really like Church's, I think I will go for my 4rd pair of Consul next month.

Hello everyone,

 

I have been looking for a pair of Church's Meadwell for quite some time without any luck (they are discontinued). 

 

I made up my mind and want to order online. But then comes the problem of sizing.

 

I own a pair of Chetwynds size G 75, last 103 and do fit well (although can feel a bit narrow and painful after a long day, but they are still new).

 

But the Meadwells I found on the internet are only available in F fitting, in size 75 or 80 (last 103 as well).

 

Since the Meadwell are similar to the Shannon, and do appear to be wider than the Chetwynds, I was wondering if I should take F75 or F80 ?

 

Any opinion on this ?

 

Thank you !!

Although I will admit a lot of the post-prada church stuff is way way overpriced and generally not even that nice (corrected grain leather, almost faux looking things.) but I managed to nab a pair of vintage pre-prada church's black brogues for £20 (thank GOD for people who misspell ebay listings..) and I have to say they're gorgeous. despite the fact they're 25 ish years old, they've actually lasted rather well and still got that kinda charm about them. Rather than do what all the church's footwear website posts imply and buff them up to within an inch of their life, I instead decided to sort of work with the distressed/vintage nature of them and give them a light matt polish and not much else. may well need to get them resoled soon, but they're going strong for now. Almost got a sort of allsaints-y vibe to them right now, which is actually really good for the sort of smart/casual mod look. (super skinny black jeans, cable knit grey jumper and black peacoat. ) I guess that's not what they were intended for, but its a use not to be sniffed at.

 

Am yet to find the right pair of socks to go with them though....

Thanks. Great shoes.

I'm not sure if they are pre-Prada though as the sock liner has "Milan" on it.

Here's one without:

Basing the pre Prada nature of them off of their age smile.gif might be wrong, but they seem to be very different from a lot of the post Prada stuff.

Hey guys,

Is the caldecott binder polished calf or full grain? Can't quite tell.

Hard to tell from pics but I would suggest Corrrected Grain. or P.B..  "Rois" is the spanish tannery´s commercial name for this CG leather.

 

Check one of the largest taneries in EU.

 

www.picusa.eu

 

They make this leather for some Churchs models.

 

Ps.-I love this leather(very good quality/treatment)  for rainy/dirty days.

Cross post from the Thrift store thread...

Found a pair of Church's shoes today, but need a little help figuring out which model these are.
Black captoes. Polished binder leather with a combo leather and rubber sole.

I can decipher the lettering inside to see they are size 10.5 F on a 135 last, but beyond that I can't read the model name.
Any ideas?

Looks to be quite a wide looking shoe despite being an F fitting.

Edit: I think It's called the Dublin.

It's written in the shoe.

Thanks.
I'm actually from Dublin, but I would never have recognised it from that handwriting.

Church's Grafton is one of the shoe models I love. The only way to improve them is using cordovan (Brits call it crup). Enjoy them!. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
