Cheaney - Page 9
Ive got a similar pair (with gray suede) in a G width for my high instep. I actually find them really good fitting. I often find a few of my I other shoes in G width slightly too loose. So you could probably conclude its a narrower last. They are great shoes and get many comments on them.
I have the Herring Gladstones made by Cheaney in a 6.5 G fit in that last. My most comfortable shoe by far. For reference, I wear a 7 US EEE in Allen Edmonds 65 last (not so good), and Church Ryder suede boots in a 6.5 g fit (fit okay, but not nearly as well as the Gladstones). The 11028 fit best. I was thinking of trying the 175 Cheaney last. Any thoughts on whether I should go f or g fit, as I am told it is a wider last. I have trouble finding lasts that work so am always looking for other lasts/shoes that might work.
Odd that the 11028 is a narrower last but works so well.
@BrooksLauren77 - It is very difficult question, which always will be followed up by subjective answear. Herring provides 11028 inF & G fitting. I have it in F and in my opinion it is not narrow, but proper and standard F, which is a little bit longer, what makes it look nice.
Comparing my Herring Fencote in 7.5 F to other brands, if it help:
- similar to Yanko 915 - I wear 7.5 too
- similar to Barker 386
- larger than AS 109, 99 by 0.5 size - I wear size 8
- larger than Meermin in Hiro by 0.5 size - I wear size 8
Some good prices on Cheaneys in the Hacket sale
Just purchased a pair of Howard R's through Shoehealer. Just about have them broken in. I may not wear any of my other shoes all summer! Plus, I can't imagine any better customer service than that given by Richard and Michelle at Shoehealer. What genuine, knowledgeable, helpful people.
+1. They're great, aren't they. I like Loake and have bought a few pairs from Shoehealer - quick delivery and just amazing service.
