Each Cheaney style is produced on a particular three dimensional 'last' which gives it its distinctive shape and feel. The images below show some of the most popular Cheaney lasts in the current range.
Many factors influence a shoe’s fitting characteristics including the materials, the construction method and the design. Consequently, our conversion table is to the nearest UK size and can only be regarded as an indication.
To give you peace of mind, however, we provide a 30 day returns policy – providing footwear is not damaged or worn outside the home. This policy is in addition to your statutory rights.
What styles would suit a higher instep?
Look for styles with a 'Derby' or 'Gibson' type lace which allow more adjustment eg Liverpool, Ewan or Avon. Avoid Oxford styles such as Broad, Arthur III and Balmoral.
I prefer a wider shoe. What would you recommend?
Look for shoes available in a wider G Fit. The standard F fitting 12508 last is also considered 'generous'.
Martin Grey in our Bow Lane, City of London store, explains the differences between styles. He discusses toe shapes, lasts, key measurements when fitting and gives some guidance on what to look out for when choosing a Cheaney.
