What you need to know

We recommend that you order a FULL size down from your normal shoe size as Grenson's sizing tends to run large.

Grenson was born in 1866 as William Green & Son and soon became known for consistency of craftsmanship and materials. The Grenson identity was formed in the 1930s and was one of the first brand names to be registered in the UK. With Goodyear welted production at the heart of the Grenson business, the company also introduced the Grens-In Sole to provide soft underfoot flexibility. Innovation in construction, design and materials has kept Grenson modern while retaining the heritage and craftsmanship that confirms Grenson as one of England's master shoemakers since 1866.

Goodyear welted sole - A shoemaking technique invented by Charles Goodyear in 1871 whereby a leather strip (welt) is stitched to the upper and the sole is then stitched to the welt. Benefits include strength and ease of repair. This is the key characteristic of English shoemaking

Customer Reviews


Broke these in yesterday- excellent pair of shoes. Really good looking pair of shoes, very comfortable, and clearly well made.

What you see...

..is what you get. These are beautiful shoes with great details. Even my cobbler was impressed when I brought them in to be fitted with taps. The recommendation to order a full size down was accurate for me. I usually wear a 9.5 so the 8.5s fit me right.

Terrific Quality, Color, Pattern

It's always a little daunting when you purchase such expensive shoes onlineā€”or really any time for that matter. The price of these is intimidating, but the quality, color, and pattern of these validates the price. My only real criticism is the shape of the shoes. I can't quite figure out why, but I wasn't in love with the shape when I wore them for a day. Quick tip: don't wear these in public if you think you might return them. I can't knock Bonobos for this, because it completely makes sense, but they weren't too keen on taking back the shoes since they don't look like new after a day of use. Just wear them on carpet, check them out in the mirror, and decide at that moment if you want to keep them forever.
