With good care and occasional refurbishment back at the factory, a pair of Cheaneys can last many years. What happens when you return your Cheaneys for new soles?
Join Gentleman's Journal as they take a look in to the factory of one of the most renowned producers of Goodyear welted British footwear, Joseph Cheaney & Sons. With commentary by Joint Managing Director William Church, the company details their ethos on what it means to be a heritage, slow fashion brand with an inherently sustainable product that's been traditionally crafted by hand since 1886.
Martin Grey in our Bow Lane, City of London store, explains the differences between styles. He discusses toe shapes, lasts, key measurements when fitting and gives some guidance on what to look out for when choosing a Cheaney.
Cheaney is one of the few shoe makers still hand crafting their shoes completely from start to finish in Northamptonshire, England. This video, introduced by joint owner William Church, shows some of the 200 operations performed by Cheaney's 120 skilled staff to make a single pair of shoes.
