I think Rannoch boots are made by Cheaney for Hoggs of Fife. Nine hole with speed hooks. They are similar to the Pennine but in Zug leather and with hooks instead of holes at the top.Slightly off topic, but considering a pair of Rannoch boots (not quite yet, I’ve just bought a pair of loafers today) and I know a few of you have them. I was wondering about sizing. I’m a 7.5 in 4444 & 4497 6 width, and an 8 in most other things - Trickers, EG, C&J etc, would I be a 7.5 or an 8 in the Rannoch boots, in your experience?
I have the Pennine and they are not very good if you have a high instep. There is insufficient leather in the quarters and they don’t lace up tight. There is a gap with a lot of tongue visible as you move up the boot.The laces supplied are too short anyway but that is an easier issue to address.
