I've been thinking about buying these boots for about 2 years!
I don’t but I will have a look inside the boot and see if there are any numbers. I’m not familiar with Cheaney lasts. They are very spacious in the toe box which I personally like for this style of boot.I've been thinking about buying these boots for about 2 years!
Do you know what last they are on?
I’m no expert but I would say 1980’s or earlier. Original price will be very hard to find out.
I live in the area and am a regular visitor to their factory shop which is literally opposite the factory where they are made. A lot of companies peddle fake British heritage but Cheaney are one of a very small number of companies in the county that really still make here. Cheaney From their website:.......That’s how I remember it....
Nice! May we please have a look at how they look now?I just found a photo of my Jarrow boots when they arrived.
They arrived with a very heavy top coat which made them so dark they almost looked black. It took several goes with Saphir leather cleaner and Venetian cream to start to reveal the colour below. The cloth was covered in dye/pigment.
Here are the exact same boots before any cleaning or wear:

Have one pair of Alfred Sargent. They are less than six months old and I’ve worn them to work three times. They make a loud plasticky clicking sound which feels like something from a shank, as though it was through stress of sole flexing whilst walking. Anybody familiar with this? Can it be remedied?
aaaaaand UPS lost my package, so I may never actually get these.
But would you say the turnouts have an ever so slightly larger toe box? In particular, length and height wise?
Interesting.... I always thought the main idea behind clicking by hand was to allow the clickers to pick out the best parts of the hide (or to cut around blemishes). If they're using a cookie cutter template, would this reduce QC/ result in more seconds than current.Interesting article on Cheaney factory, they invested in a CAD machine in the clicking room to cut uppers as opposed to cutting by hand.
