• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I'd probably check out Lof and Tung's offerings. Assuming a Dainite sole is sufficient. I couldn't really consider a boot with a lugged sole dressy. Ridgeway sole could work.

They look a lot like a pair of 9111 Red Wings
Bingo, I reckon you're on the money there. I looked at a few 9111s on ebay and the tags/era of make seem extremely similar, apart from the misprint on mine of course. Thanks!

I remember seeing them offered from Gieves & Hawkes in 2011 but that was called "the return of" so they were apparently offered before that. I was never able to find a pair of the boots in my size although they did show up on ebay frequently. They also made a chelsea boot.

In 2015 Cheaney brought the boots and shoes back again under their own label. That's when I got them. I think they only offered them that one season but I don't think they were particularly limited.
Thanks for the response, I'm going to scourer the web and see if I can source a pair of these in my size. They are a cool style that speaks to me.
