Joseph Cheaney & Sons have been producing some of the finest, handcrafted English shoes for over 130 years in the same red brick Victorian factory, which has provided its headquarters since 1886. Located in the small village of Desborough on the outskirts of Northampton, Cheaney are dedicated to manufacturing elegant, durable and sustainable footwear for both men and women.

What can we expect from Joseph Cheaney & Sons for AW21?

The Cheaney Autumn Winter 21 collection emphasises the joy of outdoor adventuring, with robust cleated and stacked rubber soles for durability, military-inspired styles with ski-hook fastenings for comfort and muted earth-tones for wearability. Characteristically unique Kudu leather, renowned for its strength and distinctive appearance, was incorporated alongside traditional smooth and grained leather options, available for both men and women.
