Best of British shoes are made by Joseph Cheaney & Sons, a shoemaker with an outstanding heritage dating back to 1886. Based in Northamptonshire, the heart of the British footwear industry, the name Cheaney is synonymous with superior shoemaking due to its dedication to traditional craftsmanship, time-honoured production techniques and usage of premium full grain calf leather.
The rich colour of this shoe’s sole can only be achieved by a traditional and time-intensive process of oak-bark tanning. As part of the process, the leather is submerged in a deep oak-lined pit for a matter of weeks, during which time it takes on its distinctive appearance.
Dainite rubber soles, leather lining and a full-grain leather outer combine to make this boot both stylish and sturdy. In fact, so much care and attention is put into the construction, each pair takes around eight weeks to create.
This classic shoe has a Goodyear welted leather sole - this method of shoe construction not only makes it more water resistant but means the sole can be replaced time after time, for style that lasts for years.
