+1. Heel looks like AS Exclusive heel:



I've never seen a C&J heel like that.

if the sole of the Kingsman shoes are identical to above then definitely not crockett & jones specs

The heel stack is to high to be C&J, as noted, but th heel cup is also shaped much differently. AS seems like a reasonable bet just by process of elimination (they're not C&J, don't look like EG, G&G doesn't have capacity for contract manufacturing, and are too high grade for Loake). Only other guess would be Cheaney - they have the little oval cutout with the last info, and do some contract work for a shop local to me at any rate. But the heel stack still says AS to me.

On reflection quite nice looking, btw.

I dunno, the heel looks pretty much exactly the same to my eye. Slanted rubber at the back, 4 nails - one in each corner, pretty much the same shape and contour. Other details such as the nails at the toe are obviously different, but the heel looks identical IMO. I could be wrong of course, but I would bet that's some sort of custom level AS.

Thanks for the info. I have a black tetbury, brown lingfield and black savile. I think the Coniston will fill a hole in my collection. Does it look good with SCs?

 

Hi, if you're interested in the boot, buy it.  Trust me, you won't be disappointed!  Yes, it looks killer with a SC.

Of the George Cleverleys I've had and handled, all were C&J handgrade and sold to me as such. It does have a oval circle for sizing though
post #8815 of 12783
^^well if it is C&J handgrade I wish they would improve the heel cup and increase the heel stack on their self branded shoes. The shoe shown above is more or less the same price as C&J handgrade but with a couple of key additional features.

Yeah, it's pretty great.

That particular sole edge finishing is typical of AS Exclusive, general proportions are similar too, heel patterns is the same, all have 4 nails only in the corners.

Any guess on the last?

Edit: Looks like the 109.

Just heard back from Cleverley. They won't say (which makes sense).

The bottom picture is 109, and looks like the Armfield. 

 

The top pictures are of a chiseled toe, and I don't think it is 724 or 104.  Probably a handgrade last like the 53. 

 

I really like the workmanship on my AS 99 and 104 lasted shoes, the sole finishing on AS Exclusive is like C&J Handgrade.  Beautiful shaped heels and narrow waist.
