Hello Shoeliker

Can you give more info about the Cheaney Howard? I am not a loafer guy but sometimes they are needed and since I saw them I have been thinking on buying a pair.

Thank you.

Do you guys know anything about Cheaney Pennine II R veldtschoen boots with leather sole / half leather sole? Just got an used pair and can only find info of commando soled ones. Is the leather sole a custom option for some retailer or perhaps an older model? If it is a resole job it is quite well done.

this is the info from inside the boot and here's the sole

It looks like a resole has been previously done on the pair. Does look like a good job has been done. The 'r' stamped in the boot suggests it was originally a Rubber sole. I might be wrong but I am not sure if the Pennine has ever been made with a leather sole.

They were £150 down from £325. They didn't look to be part of the normal rejected stock as they had them in a number of different sizes.

They are taller than any other boots I have bought like the Cheaney Tweed or C&J Islay.

 

Looks like they are still on the Cheaney website in the sale for £275.

The Mallory boots are awsome, I have a pair and they are worth the full price, enjoy them. I call them my grown up Doc Martens icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thank you. I simply wanted to check how prices changed over the last year.

Juan Manuel:

Sorry for the terribly late reply.

When I first saw the Howard R I fell in love with it. It just seemed to fit a "need" in my shoe "collection". I live in a rural area, and the Dainite sole works well for me, even though they are stiffer and I'd actually prefer leather soles.. I travel by automobile a lot, and these seem practical.

I was worried about the fit, and I ended up dropping 1-1/2 sizes from my US 12 Medium width! A Cheaney staffer had :nodding:told me he didn't think it would work for me, so I looked EVERYWHERE, for something in a narrower width that I liked as much--to no avail. Loake does have a loafer that is somewhat similar, The Highgate, and that was what I was going to try if the Howard R failed. Nothing anywhere had the color, the shape, the sole that appealed so strongly to me in the Howard.

Anyway, I like the shoes very much, but not knowing which size I needed cost me a pretty penny, as I had more than one conversation with Richard and Michelle; plus, Richard first shipped me a pair in size 11, which I had to ship back. Oh, I also got hit with $45 of duties a couple of weeks after I received the shoes. It's the first time with that for me, and I was a bit angry, but, oh well! So, if you ,absolutely know your UK size, that will help a lot. One thing with loafers is that they will stretch as they break in and form to your feet, so too much slippage at the outset is a problem.

Again, sorry for the delay, and I hope this helps.

Hello everyone, 

    I am new to this forum and quality shoe shopping. Had a question about Cheaney Broad (just black ones off Jones for a pretty decent price - £115). Liked the shoes but to learn more I need to ask around more - so how do I get to understand if these are full grain or corrected grain. I did read through a few posts on things to check, but any suggestions on how to figure this out. Also, does anyone know the key differences in Broad and Broad 2?

 

To be clear, I am happy with my purchase and these go pretty well with my Barker Pitlochry for my regular office wear.

 

Naren

Note: Jones have a good sale going on right now with Cheaneys, Loakes and Barkers at almost 50% or more on a decent range of styles.

Your "Broad II" shoes are full grain calf leather, and say so in the description. Ditto for the Barker shoes.

 

Corrected grain English made shoes will use the term "polished leather" for reference. Welcome to the forum.

 

EDIT: The only difference I see in the Broad 1 and 2 is colour, Broad 1 has a brown variation.

Very nice shoes, congratulations. Can you make some comments about the last?

Thank you! This is what I say about the last in the review: "it’s a pretty sleek last that is a bit elongated with an almond shaped toe. It’s relatively normal in length, but slightly narrower than standard I think. The heel is pretty tight and hugs nicely around the heel without any risk of heel slippage for me."
