Chukka Test Fitters

At the Workshop |

A couple of weeks ago I finally was able to schedule a test fitting for the Chukka Boots. After I met with the client, I left the test fitters with him to wear around the office a bit to make sure that the fit was good. I had no idea he would wear them outside and while driving his car! I am surprised that the cork soles didn’t complete crumble.

The results:

The lasts for these are a surprisingly good fit. Only a small addition to the top of the right last over the 4th toe will be needed.

The customer wanted the height of the boot to be a little lower, so the pattern has been altered slightly.

Old pattern on the left, and new pattern on the right.

Spot the differences.
