Golden Boot Christmas window displays are a talking point of Maidstone every year and 2016 is no exception.
In collaboration with talented local florist Sue Davies, we have created an enchanting spectacle in the ladies department, not one to miss!
Thanks to Maxitrak, our men’s window is sure to bring a smile to your face (you’ll have to come and visit us to find out more)
RM Williams boots are renown for being boots you can rely on that are built to last. With every wear you add character to your boots the more your wear them the better they look!
There comes a time however, when your old faithfuls will need a bit of a TLC.
That is where The Golden Boot can help! We send your boots back to RM Williams on your behalf for repair.
Most boots can be repaired, the only possible exception would be boots where the leather is torn through. If you’re unsure about your boots, just e mail a picture through and we can let you know, firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are local, you can bring your boots into our Men’s shop or if not, send them to us. Remember to include details of the repair you require and your full contact details (name, address, e mail and telephone number)
As most of the repairs are done by hand, the lead time for RM Williams repairs is approximately 4-6 weeks.
Once we receive your boots back from RM Williams, we will contact you for payment details. If it is not convenient for you to collect, don’t worry, we can send them back to you by courier (£5.00 postage charge)
REPAIRS PRICE LIST
Full refurbishment of long sole and heel – £100
Elastic gusset replacement – £18 each or all four for £72
Heel Tabs – £12
Heels repair only – £25
The boots come back fully polished and dressed. To keep your boots in tip top condition before and after repair, use either Saddle&Leather Dressing or Stockmans Polish to protect and preserve the leather and to cover scuffs.
We hope we’ve covered everything but if you have any questions at all just give our Men’s team a call on 01622 752349. Or alternatively send an email to email@example.com
2016 marks the 130th anniversary of Joseph Cheaney and Sons (JC) opening and 120
years in their purpose built factory. On our agenda was a tour of the various ‘rooms’ that make up the shoemaking process.
Our new men’s window display is dedicated to Flight Lieutenant Joseph Humfrey Cheaney, grandson of the company’s founder, Joseph Cheaney. Joseph Humfrey Cheaney (sometimes referred to as “Dick”) joined the company in 1930 and stayed until his retirement in 1981. The new Aviator collection was designed to commemorate his service in the Second World War when he served as a pilot in the Royal Air Force. (more…)
Jeffery Wests’ range of traditionally manufactured shoes with a stitch through the insole to the welt, then welt to sole. 4772 Hannibal on a chunky rubber sole features signature features with the addition of striking red laces to match the lining.
The slightly more classically styled double monk Montrose really stands out in it’s rich burgundy flume leather upper.
Blake Stitched construction is a more refined and flexible shoe construction that lends itself well to Jeffery West’s chiselled last shapes, such as Rochester and Ziggy. Italian made and truly unique standout pieces. The star attraction of the collection is the Icarus shoe in ‘dirty sober’ red high shine leather.
Made in Spain this Jeffery West range is all about clean lines. The sole units are cemented leaving a thinner sole with no welt. Signature Jeffery West styling at a lower price point. J936 Chelsea boot on the Scarface last, typifies the collection with wing tip brogue detail on burnished leather upper.
Contemporary design in suede finishes complete with the brands signature touches, flashes of red stitching and red lining. ‘Infamous’ modern styling at it’s best! The 19590 ‘Jimmy Loafer’ , available in navy suede and brown suede, is a wear with everything with classic loafer.

Each year, as Spring chips away at the Winter chill, our thoughts turn to packing away the weatherproof footwear and slipping into something altogether more elegant. It’s a time when the espadrille comes into it’s own.
Characterised by their jute soles, espadrilles have a long history dating all the back to the 14th century, with soldiers during the Spanish Civil War being sent into conflict wearing canvas upper espadrilles.
Our Toni Pons Spring / Summer 2015 season has kicked off really well with the ever popular Ter (left) and Nuria (right) selling at rate of knots. Both designs feature the classic jute sole and are available in a colour palette of bright and neutral shades.
This led to one of the world’s most famous espadrille manufacturers, Castaner, being nationalised as the shoes were regarded as a product of military interest. Post-war, the traditional espardrilles were adopted by Hollywood A-listers such as Grace Kelly, Cary Grant and Jackie Onassis.

This beautifully soft easy to wear ballerina has been one of our most popular styles so far and its easy to see why ! Made from premium quality materials and unlined for a luxurious flexible fit.
Available in pretty floral print and classic navy with blue floral and snake print to follow. 00177 Macadam is quite simply understated Spanish elegance at it’s best. Browse our complete Hispanitas collection for Spring Summer 2015 at http://hispanitas.thegoldenboot.co.uk/.
The design can be a picture that has been painted or drawn, something made or a decorated egg! The lucky winner can take three of their friends to Chocolate Raindrops where they can re-create their design using delicious Belgian chocolate. It really is an enjoyable day out making and sampling scrumptious chocolate treats!
You can enter the competition by posting picture of your egg design on our Facebook page.
The competition is running now and all throughout the Easter holidays and closes on the 15th April. Good luck everyone!
Why not come and take a look at our colourful children’s Easter window complete with Humpty Dumpty in a hot air balloon surrounded by chocolate eggs ! You can pick up a leaflet instore too about the competition.
The new Spring/Summer season is well and truly upon us and the shop is looking very spring like with new stock from all our leading suppliers, Hispanitas, Wonders and Gabor to name a few. It’s also the time of year for TGB staff to decide on their new staff dress colour for the summer. This year the popular choice is green ! It’s a really versatile colour and blends well with both our core colours black and navy. Work shoe decisions have already been made, and popular choices are…
Coveted in the office by Tracy and Jane is the super stylish 51008 Aloe! Jeans is probably the more sensible choice for work but the monchrome white is proving hard to resist! Both colours come with a matching bag BV50950 which the ideal size for using everyday.
Janie, who is never shy of wearing heels, is adding a touch of glamour to her workwear wardrobe with this very eyecatching design. Janie has been very happily wearing the ‘Orla Dilly’ for autumn/winter and a massive fan of the Clarks x Orla Kiely collection!
Dept manager Jane wears a lot of Wonders and has been more than happy with 3604 Jovita. Comfort and classic styling are what takes Jane back to the Spanish brand, so it’s no surprise she really likes 4710 Montilla. In two neutral colourways with a sturdy block heel, soft patent upper and cushioned footbed, an added bonus for long spells on your feet !
Trudi loves a loafer so the classic shape of 6002 Abona has really appealed to her. And as a big fan of ‘preppy’ styling, Trudi loves the Clarks Hotel Bustle fishermans sandal which she’ll be wearing with capri pants.
There are still new styles to come and sandals to choose for when the sun really shines so new decisions will have to be made. 7605 Arlanza wedge sandal from Wonders comes in three colourways and 51298 Jazmin in tan or 51118 Jazmin in black from Hispanitas both with laser cut detail, are bang on trend for SS15!
