I bought these Hoggs of Fife Rannoch last year,made by Cheaney I think that they are the Penine with speed hooks. View attachment 1724599
I have the Hoggs of Fife Veldtschoen shoe version - the Roxburgh. A lot easier to put on and take off !

However, the leather is Zug and completely different to the leather on the Pennine.

I have Roxburgh shoes and Pennine II boots too. I also wear other Cheaneys and a few Loakes. My problem with the country shoes is that with the heavy soles and no ankle support I have twisted my ankle in them more than once. For that reason I am now preferring chukka boots.

I thought that the Rannoch was a bargain compared to the Pennine but the fact that the Pennine isnt Zug makes me think that it was a bigger bargain.

Zug has always been a more well-regarded leather than Pennine country grain.

However, you then get into provenance of Zug leathers. No longer in business Martins of Scotland etc. Zug is definitely sturdier than Cheaney country grain.

I think that when a shoe is too heavy I prefer the boot version,my Sanders Salisbury for instance,I should have bought the Cheltenham boot.

I bought some boots from Pediwear they are made by Cheaney, the Tweed but in dark brown grain,its lovely and supple and very comfortable from the first wear but I did wonder how long lasting it would be.
One of the boots with an Avon,both have Commando soles,the boot is more comfortable.

Fair enough. I use Pennines as Winter footwear. I also have walking boots with speed hooks - but I never use Pennines for country walks. Veldtschoen shoes are handy, so I wear them throughout the year.

I like the dark colours and the absence of broguing makes cleaning easier.

Where did you buy the Rannochs? It looks like they're not as widely carried as they were a few years back.

Maybe these links can help:


These were made for Herring Shoes by Cheaney:
