These lovely boots from Joseph Cheaney & Sons are I have owned for 2-3 months now and have had them increasingly be my 'go-to' casual boot in my fall rotation. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase, doubly so since I got them from the 'Outlet' section of their website at a price that for the quality of Cheaney shoes/boots is, if not a steal, certainly a very handsome bargain.. a 'Schnäppchen' as we say in Germany (this section is really worth checking out for great Cheaney shoes and great deals). I am happy to report that in due course, I purchase 2 other pairs of here as well, which I hope to feature soon.
In the meantime, these beautiful CHEANEY Garforth EF Chukka Boot in Dark Sage (Khaki) Calf Suede are just killer with suede leather uppers from famous British tannery CF Stead - super comfortable with a buttery soft calfskin lining leather (seriously, you won't believe how soft the linings are - I can feel the luxury even while wearing thick wool socks - I'm not even kidding). They arrived with lovely soles stained a rich dark brown with the Cheaney logo stamped into them. I wore them for a few days, but after a day walking in rough pathways in the local city park, determined that caution was the better part of valor and had them capped with some slip-proof sole protectors by my local cobbler. Now I can were them on all surfaces and in just about all weathers without fear (this is very handy in our climate).
From a fine shoe maker, the unboxing is always a momentous occasion and this is certainly so with Joseph Cheaney & Sons:
Any way lovely boots, just lovely and I'm looking forward to getting decades of great wear from them.
