    I'm having trouble finding a satisfactory answer to the question "how do cheaney's fit?" Anyone have any thoughts on this or know of an applicable post?

    Also, I have some 11D Allen Edmonds (7 last) that fit, but if anything, are slightly large. Can anyone make a size recommendation/conversion based on that info?

    *I realize posting a specific last would be helpful, but in this particular case, I think generalizations will suffice.

    Thanks!

    On most of their lasts the F fit is equivalent to a US E/D fit. However the 175 and 11028 last are more generous.

    The one pair of Cheaneys I've owned from the Premeir Range I took an 11.5F and I wear a 12E in Edward green.

    for me they fit true to size in that a US 10 is a UK 9. You being loose in an AE 11, you may want to consider a 9.5 in cheaney

    I have the Cheaney Welbeck (last 2003, F fitting) in size 8. It fits quite well. And the AE 7 last happens to be the best fitting AE last for me (MacNeil in 9D). So, AE 9D = Cheaney 8F = very good fit for me. YMMV.

    I have the Cheaney Fenchurch in last 11028 - size down 1 from my US size. Great fit, much better than my Loakes, which fit a bit loose in comparison. Nice classic shape to the last.

    I have the F width O'Toole in the 11028 last and I can also confirm that you need whole size down. I ordered half size down and I had to put in additional padding to fill it. Also finding the width generous. Shape is classic but the toes a bit too rounded to my taste (I just prefer a mild chiseled toe for my shoes).

    for additional reference. ...Glad I went with 5.5 on the Gladstone, Thanks for all the info.....

    - last 11028 (Gladstone from Herrings), I decided to go with UK 5.5 due to sleeker toe shape...fits like a glove
    - last 175, I have UK 6 (Grassmere), for thicker socks during F/W wear. Some space around the toe box, but nonetheless, it fits well..

    I wear size UK 5.5 on C&J 348 and 341; and US 6.5 on AE #5 and #7....

    ...Gladstone pics...a little grainy from cell camera...color is burnished Chestnut

    I'm glad I found this thread just as I was about to the trigger on some Olds on the 11028 and was going to get 9.5. I've ordered them in a 9. We'll see...

    I'm also looking at some cheaneys in this last, choosing between 9 and 9.5. Whats with your pair, did you get it, how does it fit you?

    Unfortunately, I won't be much help here because the store had made a mistake in their inventory and I ended up with a different shoe entirely. Good luck!
