Pretty good imo.

Seems like the Cheaney thread is relatively quiet compared to others. Thought it would be nice to share some recent purchases. Really happy with them.

Wonder if anyone has any experience of Cheaney's with a commando sole, specifically if they have more cushioning/comfort than dainite/leather? I have leather soles on my dress shoes but I don't exactly do much walking in them.

Hi Lucido

 

That is a wonderful image of the Ribble!

 

The Commando sole is a thicker rubber sole than a dainite and so there will be some added protection against impact/cushioning.  There is no additional comfort devices within the shoe - the sock and leather insole are the same as you would find in dress shoe - based on the styles we stock.

 

We called into the Cheaney factory yesterday to view some leather for a boot MTO we have planned. William Church met us and was wonderfully helpful.  We think we have leather we want, so we'll post the boot when it is finished - it is a more casual style though it will be Dainite rather than commando...

 

I hope you find the boots you are looking for and do let me know if we can be of any help.

 

Regards

 

Mike

Wore my 'James Finch' by Cheaney for the Friday Challenge:

It took almost three weeks, but my winter boots finally arrived. Pretty happy with them; the leather is super-soft and they are comfortable straight out of the box. The Brit sole looks cool, and should provide ample grip. My only gripe is that the tongue is a single piece of leather; some padding would have been nice. 

 

 

 

There are not exactly a lot of opportunities for outdoor shots at this time of year, so here is a rather boring indoor shot instead.
