Grenson Shoes  Founded in 1866 by William Green // Northamptonshire, England //

To celebrate 150 years of continuous shoemaking at Grenson, we decided to look back through our archives and recreate a collection of our past shoes that span the decades of the 20th Century.⁣

We have made them as true to the originals as possible whilst making sure they are still wearable today. Many of the earlier shoes, for example, were very narrow so we have had to widen them, without losing the essence of the shoe.⁣

We started by developing new lasts for each style, some of which took four or five attempts as they were so different from modern shapes.⁣

We then had to source matching leathers, and we decided that where an original shoe was heavily worn and polished we would try to remake it in the way it would have looked when it was new. We didn’t want to “distress” it as we felt this would seem unauthentic.⁣
Finally we had to recreate many details that were on the originals, such as old logo stamps, hand stitched details and heel nailing, all of which took many hours of trial and error to get exactly right.⁣

Bennett is a preppy, handsewn casual apron shoe with 2 eyelets, tasselled laces and a chunky black Richfield Commando sole. For Spring/Summer 2018 he is in black suede with an unlined construction for lightweight, easy wear.⁣

Booker is a chunky, preppy loafer with a handsewn apron, straight bar and tassels. He is lightweight and easy to wear in casual honey suede – a thick suede which is ideal for this unlined construction. Booker is complete with a matching sand coloured Richfield Commando sole.⁣
