Joseph Cheaney & Sons is an independent, English-owned business that has a long and proud history in the manufacturing of quality, classic and contemporary Goodyear welted footwear. The unique skills of more than 150 craftsmen and women lie behind each shoe that we produce, from start to finish, in the same Northamptonshire factory we have occupied since 1886. Using only the finest quality components and materials, it takes 8 weeks and 200 separate hand operations to produce a pair of Cheaney shoes.


The business has grown significantly in the last few years with the opening of 8 new Cheaney stores, with the prestigious flagship being located in London’s Jermyn Street. The company operates it’s own e-commerce site – – which carries the full range of products available.


Wholesale has been key to growth and in 2016 the company was honoured to receive the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
