church consul vs c&j radstock

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So it's that time of the year again. My birthday/run up to Christmas. I just can't decide upon the two choices. Church's consul (rubber sole at £380) and Crockett and Jones radstock (dainite studded sole at £345). For either of the shoes I am looking for black calf. What would everyone go for given the same choice?

Radstock by a mile. Love the pair I have in brown.

Church has had some low quality leathers in the past too. Don't know if they stopped doing that.

Thanks for the reply guys smile.gif

Out of interest have either of you tried the consul?

I am inclined to buy the radstock at the moment now but just wondered.

Thanks for the advice guys I went to c and j in jermyn street and had the most welcoming shoe buying experience ever. I ended up buying the conniston though as 341 last did not fit me that well. What was amazing was that I suffer from a low arch but they said they could stitch some cushion in for a price. I'm waiting for those to to arrive in the next 2 weeks. smile.gif

Congrats, enjoy 'em! I hadn't tried the Consul but the leather quality rumors after they were acquired by Prada sort of had turned me away from Church's calf too. I have 2 pairs of Church's suede shoes (plus a pair of suede slippers) which are fine, but honestly I vastly prefer my 10 or so pairs of C&J. The Coniston is a great boot! I have the black grain version of it that they made for BB Black Fleece and wear it quite a lot.
