The Maidstone by Joseph Cheaney is a classic oxford style brogue, featuring a detailed toe cap. The uppers are made from a smooth high grade leather in a chestnut brown colour and the soles have a goodyear welted construction, the hallmark of quality in English shoemaking.
These shoes are made using traditional benchmade processes in Cheaney’s factory in Northampton, a place world renowned for shoemaking. They also come with individual dustbags for storage to ensure longevity of life.

Each Cheaney style is produced on a particular three dimensional 'last' which gives it its distinctive shape and feel. The images below show some of the most popular Cheaney lasts in the current range.
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.
