    I thought they have stopped the conversion to Euro? When I log into their site I see everything in UK Pounds and their site also states:

    EUROPE - Estimated Delivery Time - 3 to 4 working Days - £10.00

    You will be billed in GBP

    Countries we ship to: Andora, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Canary Islands, Estonia, Spain, Finland, France, Gibralter, Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Moldova, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugual, Romania, Sweden, Slovenia, Slovakia


    Edit:

    When adding a pair of shoes to the shopping cart and checking out to my home address in The Netherlands it charges me in Pounds:

    Order Summary
    • Sub Total:
      £225.00
    • Delivery:
      £10.00
    • ORDER TOTAL:
      £235.00

    @Schweino , I'd be happy to be wrong, but Cheaney official site still gives me prices in € and with their ridiculous conversion rate.
    Maybe they just don't like Italians ...
    Best wishes, Luigi.

    Long, high instep and generally a touch narrow. Am traveling, so no photos available.

    Thank you for starting this thread. I own the Hoggs of Fife Rannoch also (made by Cheaney). I really do like them and am wearing them once or twice a fortnight, especially in these unforgiving months. However, it is a bit of a stretch to compare with Crockett & Jones. C&J have more elegant lasts and a more refined construction. Certainly my Snowdon is, on closer inspection, a more polished boot than the Rannoch. Yes, the Rannoch is zug grain leather, which is more hardy and (presumably) more difficult to work with. However, a zug leather GMTO of Snowdon shows that Crockett & Jones managed to squeeze the boot out in an almost identical condition to the original, as demonstrated by user ‘MSAINT,’ who uploaded many images comparing the two. (Apparently a difficult process, not one the C&J team are eager to repeat on a regular basis.) The downside is they are not cheap, costing over £500 and only available through the GMTO, or MTO if you have around £700-800 to spare. The Rannoch can best be described as a proper old British boot, solid in its construction and minimal frills. The attached image shows the Rannoch shortly after I purchased them (for £210 with discount - down from a ‘RRP’ of £300) and have since been broken in a lot more due to heavy use. Especially good for when I need to walk for several hours in the country, the Rannoch has a happy place in my rotation. :)

    Speed hooks on the Rannoch would be a deal breaker for me. I have the Hoggs Veldtschoen shoe - The Roxburgh also in Zug leather. They are fine. I have the Cheaney boots without speed hooks. More of a chore to put on, but a better look as far as I am concerned.

    You are best sticking with what you have. I wouldn’t mind knowing how you wear your Roxburgh and for what occasions. I also wouldn’t mind knowing when Cheaney have their sales. If I could get hold of the boot you have for between £200-250, I would definitely consider it in the future. I can see myself having a ‘zug’/veldtschoen collection from different brands.

    I decided to take a few more pics of my Rannochs following your comment, to show the speed hooks (I initially hated them and now much prefer them) and how they are looking after a month of reasonably heavy use. I may have worn them around 20 times, but not many people walk quite as hard as I do. :)

    Roxburgh gets worn more than the boots. Easy to put on to nip out for a while in bad weather. Gets worn with casual clothes, tweed jackets etc but can even go with a British Warm overcoat as they were officers shoes originally.

    My boots were Cheaney for Marks and Spencer ‘Best of British’ range. Same boot rebadged. Cost was £300 but £150 in the winter sale. The laces could be a bit longer but I am now used to the time it takes to put them on.

    Yes, I was about to mention that. I should have put it in inverted commas or made the distinction. It has that look, but obviously isn’t it. :)

    Perhaps it’s the Marks & Spencer outlets I go to, but I never see this ‘Best of British’ range. It’s all cheap made in Asia. However, I did find a Made in England belt reduced in price several years back. It has proven to be BY FAR my most durable.

    It was a one off. They thought they would try premium quality items at higher prices one year. Socks are about all I get in Marks now. The ones with different colour heels and toes are easy to identify as pairs after they come out of the wash.

    I bought stilton and smoked salmon the other day, but that’s about it.

    Has anyone tried on the Cheaney Mallory boot? I am considering it as a winter boot.

    Hello, I have a pair of Mallory bought from Herrings, is a wonderfull boot, it can surely acomodate a winter sock. I am 10.5 UK F in Church's 173, Loake Capital and Cheaney 125 last and use the same size for the Mallory. Good luck.
