    Corrected grain is good choise for beater shoes -like Docs I like to wear throughout the winter time.
    It’s just that corrected grain tends to be less long lasting as the plastic starts to crackle after some time so to me it’s just waste of good calf leather if you coat quality hide with plastic.
    And I’m not keen on paying some 350£ for such stuff either if it’ll break down/lose it’s looks in a year or two...

    I agree with you. It’s a lot of money for corrected grain.

    what sort of shoe selection do they have there. Am I likely to find a second pair of black oxfords or semi-brogues?

    Basically anything (at least on the first day). The selection of this year is overwhelming. I reckon there are 30-60 styles per size.

    Juan Manuel's idea, to compare side by side pics of different shoes in order to have a better guess of their fit, is really good.
    Maybe there is some Gentleman out there who happens to be a 10,5UK and own both a pair of Cheaneys in 225 last and a pair of Alfred Sargent in 87 or 724 last, and is willing to post a pic of the shoes side by side?
    Thank you all. Luigi.

    Hello Luigi

    Unfortunately I don't own Cheaney in 225 last, but I own AS in 87 and Cheaney in 125, this might help, best regards. WhatsApp Image 2018-11-11 at 11.26.00.jpeg

    225 is much longer than 724.

    My Cheaney Boughton Chukkas. 225 last.
    2 different pairs - both from the factory shop.
    Both very comfy and they look good.

    Very nice, I wish I lived near a factory shop. How much did they set you back?
