    So I recently went a little crazy with Cheaney shoes because they're much better than the lower tier shoes like Loake and Barker but not exactly unaffordable. I got 3 pairs on the 11028 last and they all seem to fit differently?!

    the Lime (cap toe oxford) is a little too tight
    the Fenchurch (semi brogue oxford) feels comfortable with a wee bit space in the instep
    the Threadneedle (chelsea boots) fits great with a bit of heel slip

    I get the chelsea is a different design and hence will fit differently but the lime and fenchurch on identical lasts in the same size was surprising. Anyone else experienced same last, same shape, stark difference in fit?

    I have the 205 last shoes 2 different sizes but I tend to put that down to me being borderline between sizes. I do regret a little ordering one pair online that were tight but I persevered with. All my other Cheaneys came from the factory shop. There are a couple of other pairs of Cheaney that I assumed would wear in but haven't. This probably has more to do with my optimism and foot shape than a fair assessment of Cheaney. I have also tended to prioritise avoiding slippage over sufficient space in the vamp. I still have over a dozen pairs for all occasions that I live in.

    I would guess this is to do with the amount of stitching on the pattern between the different models and also how long each shoe stays on the last/tightly it’s pulled on the last during manufacturing.

    No expert but I suspect there are also accepted tolerances of variation in a handmade/benchmade product.

    First outing for recent acquisition number 3 of 3. These are probably better suited for wear with jeans or corduroy.

    That makes sense, and we are talking abouth something made in leather (some stretch more than others in the last) and by hand, so I assume there might be some tolerances.

    Guess what came in the mail?

    the 205 last is a tad 'too' long but it fits really nicely. It's even longer than the 11028.

    The regular line seems to be a bit better built than the city line. That bit more comfortable but i'm not sure it's really worth that extra 60 gbp

    Congratulations. The last looks a bit like a Crockett and Jones 348 to me.

    I’m not the biggest fan of the city line. I bought a pair of Lime 4 years ago. The soles and uppers were a bit thinner and wore through quickly. I didn’t get a resole as their shop manager advised me it may not survive re lasting

    They look great. Is this a private label make up?

    After having a few pairs of Cheaney, I've decided to go the MTO route. Here's my MTO 1 of 1 Cheaney

    I should probably start a new thread with more pics

    How comparable are Cheaney's suede leather, i.e. in the Chukka (jackie iii) compared to say Carmina, C&J?
