Update on Cheaney shoes

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
I reached out to a well placed source at Cheaney's this week. I asked for an update on what's going on since the Church cousin's bought the company back.
Though I'd share the response:

"Hi Nick

Everything is fine at this end. I'm currently working hard on the new website and catalogue- lots of photography going on at the moment! We are hoping to launch both in June, with e-commerce functionality (UK only at this stage). I think you will love the top end Sovereign range-oak bark soles, with fiddle waists. There are 7 styles and the materials are beautiful. The Country Collection has been extended and the rest will probably be under the Cheaney of England banner, sub-divided into City, Casual and Classic, although this is still a 'work in progress'. The City styles are all new, and are very elegant and sophisticated-I think they will be the classics of the future. There are some innovative Casual styles, as well as updates on old favourites.

We are also planning to open shops this year, so watch this space!

Kind regards"

That's why it has a number instead of a name - the FS in FS029 means Factory Shop. They aren't seconds, but I presume they are made to a budget. The boots are very popular and they get a new batch made when they run out. If you haven't been, it's worth a trip.

I'll have a think about how I can describe my camera skills. It comprises of a decent DSLR, 60mm macro lens, studio lights, Capture NX2 and Photoshop. It takes a while, but I like the finished result.

Another purchase in progress for next week...

These seem like the perfect country boots and I can't help but wonder if, with sufficient interest on SF, that Cheaney factory would be able to introduce the FS029 as a forum special for around the price range of the same vicinity as what you paid, with the option of international mailing.

Add the fact that this style is already something they produce for their Factory Store so they already have pattern which could avoid the usual setup cost. Don't know how shipping would work though, i.e. if Cheaney or the FS would be willing to mail each pair individually.

Damn, I had hoped you'd volunteer to look into the possibility of hooking up that boot for SF... While I don't usually care for hockey, I must admit I watched that game with great interest (and a bowl of chips).

An excellent looking pair of boots (look like C & J at half their price!) I think they've got a real winner on their hands in this model - I'm certainly up for a group purchase at GBP 150. Is a member willing to put in the time to coordinate this?
post #6 of 57
I don't think they (Cheaney) are interested. I emailed them a week back about this but have not heard back from them.

They are busy with launching their new lines and I doubt they are keen to entertain such a small order.

I'm afraid Cheaney wont be getting any of my business any time soon !! Rang them to buy that boot with credit card in hand to be told they didnt have my size and wouldnt be making my size in that boot at all. (size 6.5). As ALL the other manufacturers make my size in virtually any style i would care to order, Cheaney can go shove that boot squarely up their a**e !! The guy that i spoke to actually seemed quite pleased to be able to fook me off!!

Would have been my first Cheaney shoe/boot purchase and was quite looking forward to it now it seems my collection will not include Cheaney.

Now wheres that AS catalogue and phone number.................

Emailed Cheaney on the 2nd of this month and still no reply !! Not very good
in my book. Such a shame

I assure you Sir, you are not the only one dissed. If they are not going to answer emails, might as well not put the contact information out there.

I can only wish them the best. They are not the only shoemakers out there.

I've only had great experience in contacting and getting information from Cheaney.

For upnorth, gdl203, kev777, StephenStyle and anyone else who were interested in Cheaney FS029 boots similar to Pengranger's: Herring Langdale 8 eyelet brogue boots for 191.49£ excl. VAT. Not exactly the same, but close enough and also made by Cheaney...

I think those are the ones made by Trickers

They're on the 175 last which is a Cheaney stock last.

"Sturdy country brogue boot with a 360 degree storm welt. The upper is made from a supple Mahogany grain calf. Hand made by Cheaney of Northampton for Herring Shoes." What more do you pair want? Edit: also the last as per Groover's post.
post #15 of 57
I wonder is Pengranger's factory shop boot also on the 175 last? If so they're almost identical bar the speed hooks.
