About Us

Chaneco Orthopaedic footwear is manufactured in Northampton, England - The heart of the British footwear industry.

Founded in 1971 by Chris and Angela Hanley, the family owned business manufactured quality uppers for the bespoke Orthopaedic footwear industry for many years before moving forward to produce the Chaneco range of stock and modular footwear.

Family Business

Today the company is run by the second generation. Helen Hanley (Managing Partner) joined her father in 1996 and has been supported by Victoria Hanley (Partner) since 2004. Together they have built on Chris Hanley’s reputation to become one of the largest Orthopaedic footwear manufacturers in the UK today, currently supplying more than 150 hospitals.

Extensive Product Range

The development of the custom made and stock orthotics product range in recent years completes the extensive Chaneco offering for the orthopaedic, orthotic and rehabilitation industry. Products are either manufactured internally or sourced from market leaders around the globe, making the Chaneco range of Orthotic products one of the most comprehensive in the country.

Chaneco’s workforce consists of a team of highly skilled shoe makers who combine experience handed down to them from past generations, with modern production methods to produce individually made, high quality footwear. Without compromising this quality, we also provide what we believe to be unbeatable timescales for delivery. On the Orthotics side, most of our products can be either made or modified to your specific requirements by our expert Orthotic Technicians, in our own workshop. With a next day delivery service on stock items and rapid production timescales on custom orthotics, the Chaneco service is second to none.

Our customer base extends from the largest NHS Trusts, to smaller healthcare companies to private customers, all of which have come to expect the high quality and great service that Chaneco offers as standard.
