The Eco Aware Collection strips back the number of solvents and chemicals used within the standard manufacturing process for leather-based footwear. From the repairable rubber soles, to cork bottom fillers, to selecting local raw materials from C F Steads, whose tannage is metal and chrome-free, components have been assessed and altered where possible to allow for a more ecologically sound product. The collection - which includes Brogues, Oxfords, and Derbys - reinterprets classic styles into new designs that reflect environmentally responsible, transparent production processes. Read More>
The traditional process of Goodyear welt construction is utilised in our Eco-Aware collection, allowing for the shoes to be fully refurbished multiple times within their lifespan, resulting in a product that has profound longevity. Lastly, reclaimed packaging in the form of cotton bags and 100% recyclable boxes have been selected to package the footwear.
As a company, Joseph Cheaney & Sons has been committed to producing premium, inherently sustainable footwear fully manufactured within our Northamptonshire factory since 1886. Our ethos has always centered around creating functional and performance-driven collections that don’t compromise on style or comfort. But we wanted to do more. It is our belief that each company, no matter how small, should endeavor to minimize its environmental impact in a more responsible and mindful manner for the benefit of all.
