Grenson Shoes

The story of Grenson shoes is tough; it begins with four-year-old William Green and his recently widowed mother moving to Rushden, Northamptonshire in the heart of England. The area was known for its shoe-making to begin with, and the geography ensured that all the elements of a great shoe and great shoemakers were there.

Learning as an apprentice and then applying those skills to make boots with his mother, and being a shrewd guy he was able to move up the hierarchy of shoe making. The history is on their site and is really interesting as it discusses–in detail–the process in which Grenson became, well, Grenson.

They are a favorite of many fashionitos, editors, and men looking for an extremely well-made, durable, and classic shoe. Check them out, their no-nonsense site echoes the simplicity, utility, and craftsmanship they have at Grenson.

This shoe is my favorite so far.
