Maiden voyage of my Cheaney Churchill. I wish they made these in G width. Just a tad snug so need to be broken in a bit. They are incredibly light.

Hi guys can I please have some thoughts on these Hurricane II Military Style Derby Boot in Whiskey Kudu Leather https://www.cheaney.co.uk/cheaney-hurricane-ii-military-style-derby-boot-in-whiskey-kudu-leather-p1379

They look like a pretty smart yet rugged boot in a Burgundy-esque colour and I can't see many downsides for the price (other than buying blind without trying it on so I need to make sure my foot measurements are right). I would be using them as a general rough and ready boot for Winter or wet weather etc and would plan on wearing other boots to more fancy social occasions. Generall I'd wear with slim jeans and a wool coat in black, navy or grey.

Opinions on the quality and size/fit? :)

If the style suits what you want, those are a lovely pair of boots made with a hard wearing material. On quality, I wouldn't have any doubts: Cheaney is a brand that deliver with their products: better leather and finishings than most American brands.

On the sizing, I usually go half a size down with most of Cheaney's lasts, taking into account that my feet are slim, with a low volume and instep. This might not be your case, as every foot is a world. If you have wider feet with a high instep, I wouldn't downsize, as they might be too tight for you and I would go with your usual UK sizing, one size less than your American dressing shoes.

Thanks man that is very useful! The Hurricane II looks chunky but not "too" chunky so I am hoping it will make a good rugged boot for the kind of conditions and terrain that I wouldn't take a nicer boot out in. I think a size 10 would likely be fine considering I am officially a 10-10.5 44-44.5 and I think a size 10 in this boot would allow me a little room to wear some thicker or padded socks. :)

I have this boot. Its a handsome and rugged boot, lovely colour too. The fit is somewhat generous but not overly so. If you have narrow feet it would be a boot to wear a thick sock in but if your feet are normal to wide then you'll be fine in normal socks. Hope this helps.

I've just bought a pair of Hanover Imperial range boots in burgundy. Having worn them once, I noticed what seems to me to be very disappointing leather quality on the inside lower part of the right boots ( see attached photo). I've written to Cheaney and am awaiting an answer from them. I felt I couldn't just return them as I had worn them. Do you think this leather is sub standard for a Cheaney boot?

Thanks for the feedback! Do you please by any chance please kindly have a few foot shots with them on? :)
