Believe a few of my Stows have encountered a few submersions without problems so was quite surprised about the Grassmere and I've two pairs.
Now thinking I should may have made my second.. a pair of Hoggs of Fife Rannoch....also a made by Cheaney. :rolleyes:
I have the Rannoch's,they're Zug leather and its quite thick and tough.

How do the Hoggs fit comparative to 4497s? Frankly the Pennine is pretty much the best boot I have for hard tramping, but hey, no one on this forum has enough pairs I guess
I have Hoggs and Cheany Pennine II and 4497s. Pennine IIs fit me best. I like the FX last. Hoggs are roomier than 4497s too. 4497s are certainly more snug around the pinkies.

Ah ha! You might be the man to make my Christmas come early then. So the Rannoch is roomier than the Pennine as well? And what colour are they in? I see websites saying brown but pictures online seem to show a more reddish tone. I just figured that being made by Cheaney that the fit was pretty much the same as the Pennine.

With a days thaw after Monday's snow storm I inadvertently steeped in a puddle last night while on my walk with my Zug Grain Grassmere on Commando and was surprised the welt leaked like a sieve near the instep on both boots. Only took a second but the instantaneous rush of cold water inside the boot was not appreciated. Gave them a good going over this morning with a generous amount of dubbing around the seams but it's now back to -16 celsius / -28 fahrenheit so can't test. : (
"this toe capped 7 eyelet Derby ankle boot has a half bellows tongue and storm welt to keep you warm and dry" ???
Actually coming back to this for a second. Your feet got wet 100% I know sometimes when I step into puddles water gets between the shaft and tongue and the sensation on feet is cold as well without actually getting anything wet.

Anyway, just the fact that both feet flooded seems strange to me. Weird set of simultaneous failures...

Same size in the HoF and Pennine 2?

Last shape. 2298 for the Durham vs 4444 for the Bourton.

basically, take your normal size for the Durham and a half size down for the Bourton. Standard advice so do adapt for your own requirements.

Out of all delivery services I think I like DHL the best (3rd time using them). Already have notification that my AFPOS order has shipped and I can specify where I want them to place the package and they arrive fast.

This order has a Green MC Stow (anyone know what MC stands for? Something calf?) and an acorn CS brogue boot so I'll be interested to see how they compare.



Should be an interesting comparison, the Carlos Santos is almost half the cost.

My Christmas gift arrived from the nice people of A Fine Pair of Shoes (thant you Sarah):

Model: James
Last: W2298
Welt: 360
Colour: Espresso

Impressive shoes, I own the same in black and chesnut but these in espresso are truly amazing. I am not a loafer guy but these Trickers are one of my favourite shoes, the proportions and finishing show attention to detail.

The first picture was taken al 6am with the sun comming through the blinds.

Here's a pic I have lying around. I would say both the Rannochs and Pennines have a red tinge with the Pennine IIs being redder.
