It was such a fantastic experience to win a Drapers Footwear Award which was the icing on the cake for our new Jermyn Street flagship concept store. Apart from a great evening it gave us a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this key moment in Cheaney’s history.

Drapers reaches our target buying audience. To sponsor an awards and be associated with the Footwear Awards and whole Drapers brand is essential. It’s the quality reference in the marketplace.

Winning a Drapers award in our first year gave us unique industry validation, due to not only the calibre of the competitors, but also the award itself. We were both proud and excited by the multiple nominations and the award itself

Drapers is the industry magazine that makes the difference for us. To be recognised by Drapers is absolutely significant, so we are over the moon.
Kickers, 2014 Winner, Young Fashion Footwear Brand of the Year
It’s great to be recognised for this award by internationally known trade magazine and their high profile judging panel. The immediate effects came in terms of staff morale. To be recognised for something they have worked so hard on for so many years is priceless. In terms of sales we have seen increased interest in the brand from not only UK stockists, but also international.

With the vigorous judging process, the Drapers awards are truly the highest accolade for anyone working in the footwear industry, so it's an honour for us to be awarded Best Mainstream Footwear Brand of the Year.  This accolade really showcases just how far we have come as a brand during the past 40 years. We’re going to continue our growth by doing what we do best –crafting stylish award-winning products with the environment in mind.
