Most beautiful boots I own

These are by far the most beautiful boots I own, I wear them in the winter as they are comfortable and ridiculously warm with the added shearling lining. I simply sprayed a protective spray on them to protect them a bit from the snow/salt.

They are also surprisingly light because of the sole and extremely comfortable to wear. I get compliments from both men and women every time I wear these.

Bought these full price a few months ago --get them now while they're on sale, you won't regret it.

Military Boot

Our military style boots are based on a pair of flight boots belonging to our founder's grandson. Its distinctive shape includes a generous toe box and a higher toe spring, resulting in a comfortable fit. A real heritage item, these boots are a nod to our history and a modern classic.

  • Recommend half size down
  • Very generous toe box and beautiful toe spring, it is extremely comfortable


Kudu Leather
Kudu Leather

Kudu leather is the hide of a large species of antelope native to the woodlands of eastern and southern Africa. Due to their grazing patterns amongst thorny brush and the fact that all the hides originate from wild kudu, their hides will often display scars and scratches that makes each skin characteristically unique. The leather is incredibly strong but surprisingly supple, with a highly-textured, pebbled and glossy finish.


Footwear constructed using Kudu leather is extremely easy to care for and it is recommended to wipe away dirt with a clean cloth, store in cotton shoe or boots bags and use shoe trees to maintain their shape in between wears.


Vi-Lite Rubber Sole
Vi-Lite Rubber Sole

Made by Vibram this Sole is available on both men and women styles. The cleated tread design known as 'Genepy' is very similar to the Commando but alternatively is made from a very lightweight rubber-like compound named by Vibram as 'Vi-Lite'. Striving on comfort and flexibility, but heavy aesthetic features allows for maximum energy conservation. We offer the Genepy sole in black or brown but also white features in our Spring/Summer Collections for its great versatility.



With proper care, Cheaney shoes will give comfort, value and service over a considerable time. However, if after wear you wish to extend the life of your Cheaney shoes, we are able, because of the quality of the materials used in the original manufacturing process, to offer a full refurbishment service.
