Are the lower line shoes leather lined? Or do they have canvas in the front?

I have today ordered the CT Loake country brogues which are half price in the sale, in the belief that they are possibly Loake Chesters. A search on another site which sells this model has found them to be described as fully leather lined.

Whether the CT supplied items prove to be will be seen in a few days, but I remain hopeful.

I got my Loakes today, and they are fully leather lined. I have no problems regarding either the leather or general construction, they are not in the same league as my Church's or C&J, but are good for the price. However, I am still returning them,(provided the normal returns policy applies to sale items, I have to check) as the shape is very clumsy looking, the sole as viewed from below is the exact outline as shown in the various books I have of the typical shape of a cheap mass produced shoe as opposed to the more form fitting elegant and narrow shape of a bench made shoe. Shame really, £67.50 was a nice price for Goodyear welted country brogues, and CT sent thm very quickly, along with some nice felt bags.
