Joseph Cheaney & Sons
Country of Origin:
Originally, the brand J. Cheaney was created in 1886 by Joseph Cheaney when he and his son Arthur started making shoes in Northamptonshire, UK. In 1903 that name changed to Joseph Cheaney & Sons when his second son Harold joined the business. Joseph Cheaney & Sons produce some of the United Kingdom’s finest shoes which are completely handcrafted from start to finish, using only the highest quality calf leather available. The shoes are all made on-site in the company’s factory in Northamptonshire, which is still being used in its original location today.
Throughout the First World War, the factory remained very busy producing around 2500 pairs of shoes per week, supplying the war efforts. During the Second World War, the company did not produce under its own brand name but instead crafted shoes for other large retail groups in the UK and USA. In 2016 Joseph Cheaney & Sons won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, recognized as the most prestigious business award in the UK, awarded to only the most outstanding companies or individuals in their field. Keeping to England’s international reputation of the finest shoemaking, Joseph Cheaney & Sons is truly a leader in their field.
