This collection of handmade shoes is dedicated to Flight Lieutenant Joseph Humfrey Cheaney. Served his country 1940-1945

Flight Lieutenant Dick Cheaney volunteered for service in the RAF and initially trained on the de Havilland DH 82 Tiger Moth. On one of his early solo flights he got lost in fog. Running low on fuel and realising that he was not going to make it back to his airfield, he had to find a suitable landing site. He managed to land in a field, to be greeted by an umbrella-wielding old lady, who wanted to know if he was flying a Spitfire! He served with distinction in 233 Squadron throughout the Second World War, receiving a King’s Commendation. Once peace was declared, he resumed his responsibilities at Cheaney

Police Uniform Shoes

This is my 5th pair of Cheaney shoes and yet again they have not failed to impress. I purchased these Military style shoes for my work as they look fantastic with my uniform. They came polished and with black trousers look really smart. They fit like a glove right from the outset. They are supportive in the entirety of the shoe. Many people have commented on the smartness of the shoe. If you are looking for a military style shoe can’t recommend enough.

Everything...and then a bit more

I saw these shoes online and thought they were stunning. The only drawback? the dainite version was being discontinued so it looked as if I was going to need a 'special order'. however, the sterling work of Mr Pugh found a pair in one of their retail outlet. when they arrived, the toecaps were extra polished and the shoes fitted like a glove. stunning and superb service
