Yes, they have made Goodyear-welted shoes in the past, but from what I've seen it hasn't been for a while.  They are an old company, and like most old (American especially) companies, they once made good quality products and then started outsourcing.  Most of them completely shifted to cemented construction.  I haven't seen a Cole-Haan Goodyear welted product in years, but perhaps I've just missed it.  How old is the pair you are referring to?  The pairs that they seem to be making now are a special "1928" line for their 85th anniversary.  Increasing their quality temporarily to woo the Cole-Haan fans into spending more money on a "special" product perhaps?

Less than 10 years old. Made by some OEM in India.

I recently got some new unlined shell boots and saw that there was a little bit of black fungus looking stuff on the back of the shoe. Does anyone know any products to use to counteract this? It is really really small, but I'd rather address it now than later.

Ha! Yes it is. Don't really mind them using my pic although they could have asked first.
Oh well...

Thanks! Yes I do strange looks every now and then.
In general people are amused by the harmless village idiot lying down on the street to make pictures of his shoes from a better angle.

Excuse me, but what are people's views on Cheaney shoes?

post #7254 of 10232
^Underrated, imo.
post #7255 of 10232

Thanks, Patrick, I was planning on buying a pair. 

post #7256 of 10232

Munky, I'd echo Patrick's sentiments. Cheaney make very good shoes and have upped their game both in terms of lasts and designs. Their shop in Piccadilly arcade is well worth a visit. Chi

Hello i think they are quite good at the sub-300 GBP price point but a lot of people don't seem to have a high opinion of them :embar:

 

I have 3 pairs of Cheaneys :)

they look quite good to me!! the only thing i see is that you have to use shoe trees to minimize the creazing!!

When Lodger footwear was a thing their shoes were made by Cheaney and they had some truly amazing looking pairs. I think they are capable of great shoes, but they are hard to find. If they opened a store in NYC I am sure it would do amazing. The price point is pretty much no-man's-land.
