Best Valued Grainy Leather Boots? (like trickers grasmere, alfred sergeant kelso?) - Page 2

i am still not sure which is the best deal on grainy boots in terms of value for money
post #17 of 63
Kelsos (and Selkirks) are fantastic value when purchased at recent close-out prices (under £200) especially as AS will now charge at least £400 to make you a 'Made To Order' Veldt (by special request).
Very limited range of sizes left around though.

They make a nice change from the brogued boots that everyone and his dog is wearing at the moment too.

I was looking at their cordovan but ended up getting an Indy cordovan model instead.

By all accounts they live up to their name and are hard-wearing.

Hey Piperson, did you ever hear back from Cheaney about these boots?  I have to say they are one of the best looking wingtip boots I have seen.  I'm also interested in them but was just curious if you had any luck getting them.

^^ Check your PM.

Could you send me a PM too? Those boots are sick.

You have to call the factory store, which is a pain from the US...I've been meaning to do it for the last week and still haven't done it.

I'd go with Cheaney - they make some nice shoes.

Personally, I'd avoid AS - ordered the Kelso and sent it back. Wasn't happy with the leather quality and the pull tab pulled out as soon as I tried them on.

I had major problems with Tricker's brown zug grain and got rid of my Grasmere boots and Ilkley brogues. They are very overpriced.

The Hoggs Rannoch boot is a lower-end Cheaney boot, though solidly made.

I'm a fan of Mustang leather. See Hoggs Stirling. The leather isn't anything special and it's not meant to be, but you could scramble over rocks in them.

Would be interested in that too. Probably a lot of people would, if you could post it up without divulging anything sensitive.

So I have deceided to kop these beautiful shoes. How are the sizing on them?

I wanted to post a follow up to let everyone know the Cheaney FS029 are available from their factory.  I called this morning and placed an order for a size UK7 which they had in stock.  Cost was $195UK with a shipping fee of $35UK to the United States.  My experience was great and the gentleman on the phone was very helpful.  I'll post pictures once I receive the boots.

Yep, I ordered through the factory and received the boots yesterday.

Pics? How do they look, what is the quality like?

Also, dd you end up paying customs fees (assuming you live outside the UK?

I don't have a camera now b/c I lost my iPhone in a cab, but once I get a new one, I'll post pics. I paid 195 pounds for the shoes, 35 for shipping and handling (I'm in the US), as mentioned. They look great, just as in the pics, I'm looking forward to wearing them! The leather on the uppers is kind of rubbery - I don't have any other pebble grain shoes. But it feels like it will be quite weather resistant, which is what I need them for.
