The Chatfield walking cane is exclusively designed by Top & Derby and made in Canada.
HANDLE Say goodbye to slip and slide. The handle is made from an aluminium core which is then over-molded with silicone, forming a soft, continuous grip that conforms to your hand and dampens vibrations while you walk.
SHAFT More walnut than your last batch of banana bread. The shaft is crafted from solid Walnut hardwood and is coated in a durable satin finish, which helps to bring out the natural variation in the wood grain.
SHOE™ Some people call it a tip. Top & Derby call it a shoe™. The unique grip pattern is inspired by a sneaker sole, and is molded in durable thermoplastic rubber material.
SIZING Measure twice, order once. The Chatfield is currently available in three sizes, is fixed in length, and non-adjustable, so please follow these steps before placing your order:
If you are already using a walking cane and are comfortable with the height of it, then measure it to determine the size of Top & Derby cane that you’d like to order. If the length of your existing cane is in between two sizes, we suggest ordering the larger of the two.
Put on the type of shoe that you wear most frequently and measure from the floor, up to your wrist joint. Your arm should be relaxed at your side and bent slightly. Once you’ve determined the measurement, pick the length of the Top & Derby cane that you’d like to order. If the measurement is in between two sizes, we suggest ordering the larger of the two.

"I wanted to let you know that my dad has just received his Top & Derby Cane and is delighted with it. Thanks for getting it to him so quickly." Kate
"I absolutely adore my Top & Derby. It is so stylish, in 6 years of using a walking stick I have never felt good about any other stick. I'm 46 with two young children and it can feel so embarrassing. But I don't feel like that with the Top & Derby. Not only is it lovely to behold but it is also very comfortable to use and it feels more supportive than any other walking stick." Mari
"The Top & Derby Chatfield Walking Cane: I was originally looking for a walking stick that wouldn’t make a horrible metallic clatter as my mother’s plastic and aluminium cane fell to the floor many times each day. In desperation I previously bought ugly little clip on hooks for the old walking sticks and still they crashed to the floor! So I thought I want to search for ‘silent walking stick’ and that’s when I found the Top & Derby. What I hadn’t expected was such clever design in a silicone hand grip so the cane never slips to the floor in the first place. It’s genius design.
I’ve also tested dropping the cane and it is so well designed that only silicone will ever hit the floor, so if it ever gets dropped, which is unlikely with the grippy design, then it goes down with a nice gentle thud. On top of all this superb functional design, is exceptional elegance which as an architect I appreciate hugely. The handle and foot are both flush and of the same diameter as the beautiful walnut stem, and shaped with such purity of design.
I rank the design up there with the best classic Hans Wegner furniture design or Arne Jacobsen fittings or Paul Henningsen lights. My mother’s old walking sticks grated on my nerves in every sense and I hated seeing them around the house. The Top & Derby cane is just such a pleasure to look at and feel. I really can’t find enough words to say how pleased I am with this brilliant product." Justin B
