Wore my calf Dink's for the first time yesterday; like wearing Frankenstein's monsters slippers!

Thanks in advance

Except that they didn't fit right. Had to return them. : (

210 GBP, ex shipping, if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks

Shame they did not fit, still a very good price.

In the past I've asked Cheany factory about other styles (seen on pictures of a factory tour) but they never replied, they helped me only asking directly for a specific model, ex. these FS029.

Maybe I should try another time...

Hi Mimo,

 

What is your wearing experience with those Dink´s?...I am curious. I like them a lot but not sure about wearing them.  Thank you in advance and enyoy them!!

I actually picked them up from the post office on the way to the airport, and then wore them on arrival for dinner with my new regional boss and colleagues.  They were surprisingly comfortable: shell can be a bit stiff, and with a triple sole too I thought they might be slipping in the heel a lot and hard to work to start with.  But they were a pleasant surprise.  I didn't walk a great deal, but they are a lot more friendly to wear than the look.

 

Watch your step on tiles/marble etc with all that brass on the bottom, though.  I was very careful!

Yes, great shoes, and still a good price. I´m down the Herring Langdale road now.

Couldn't wait to wear either of them, so this pic is post breaking-in, as you see: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I emailed the Cheaney factory ~2 weeks ago specifically asking for the FS029 and never got a response :brick:

So much nicer than the C&J Coniston last.

Hi people. I don't known if this is the right place to post this situation of mine.

I've got a pair of wingtip derbys whose leather has no coating, one could say that the leather is "raw" except for the brown dying.

The thing is that I had the brilliant idea of polishing them with neutral/transparent shoe polish and now they are three time darker in color! Also with smudges all over them.

I tried to take the polish out in a myriad of ways but it was to no avail. I even tried alcohol but it made the thing worse.

Any idea how to recuperate the real color of my shoes?

I am surprise too with your comment.  Being the first wear and so comfortable with a triple sole!!. Great!!.  One more cuestion, did the gunboats get many people´s attention?. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Terrific additions @mimo. The Dinks are too cool for school and I really like the shell Bayfields.  I have a CXL pair that has been my go-to-hard-use boot for a couple years and they have held up spectacularly well.  Enjoy the heck out of yours.
