Grenson

Grenson Logo
Grenson shoes was started by one man, William Green. Raised by his mother in Rushden, Northamptonshire in London, she taught him how to craft men's boots in their home. He continued to help his mother until 1860 when he moved into his own home and continued the business from there until 1866. Green attracted some of the finest shoe craftsmen in the business, and he opened the first factory in 1874. The "Greens Yard" factory was one of the first in the world to use the Goodyear welt construction method for manufacturing gentlemen's shoes. "Green & Son" soon became Grenson, a powerful brand which still dominates the shoe industry today. Grenson shoes have been manufactured in the same factory for over 100 years. Every Grenson shoe is "Goodyear Welted," which is an age-old technique, characterized by English shoes since mid-1800s. Goodyear welting makes the shoe more robust, longer wearing, and reparable without the shoe losing its shape. Grenson footwear offers a variety of classic styles to choose, ranging from exquisite oxfords and loafers made from extremely high quality leathers from the best tanneries to modern style boots with a hip twist. Grenson has something to offer everyone.

They look really good! They felt a bit narrow you might want to try a half size up. For me the deal-breaker was that they crush the top of my foot. Maybe that's because I have a higher instep? (I never had this issue with other shoes though). This was not the right shoe last for me so I am sadly returning them.

They look so good! A classic Chelsea boot in very sturdy leather, beautiful craftsmanship, oh I loved them! These boots if they fit from the first try (I don't expect they break easily) can probably last a lifetime, and be classic and gorgeous for decades to come. For me they were too small even in a size up, seemed a bit narrow too, but my feet are wide, try a size up?

I probably got the wrong converted size from UK to US - but I followed the size chart. I got a UK 7 when I’m a US 8.5. The shoe was huge - fit like a 9.5 and looked like a 10-11 from the outside. It looked very mannish, but has top quality very heavy, smooth and shiny leather that would probably great once they were broken in (which would take quite a while). Back they go - even in the correct size adjusted for them seeming to run big - they’d be a little too mannish for my tastes with the heavy leather soul and gentlemanly shape.

Spent $298.00 for a product professed to be English made and they were made in India. Purchasing a brand that professes to be an English made shoe and having them made in India is a big disappointment. I returned them because in the end they were a full size to size and a half larger than the size conversion chart.

Amazing shoes, fit and finish are outstanding. If you appreciate top quality shoes - Grenson is your brand. I wear a US 12 and found the UK 10 fit best.

Style and workmanship is off the charts...but the sole incredibly stiff. If I had not had grips put on the soles by my cobbler, I would have returned them because the soles are so stiff. It's like walking on wooden planks.

Oh wow. These are gorgeous. Everything from the suede to the sole was perfectly well made and of the highest quality I’ve ever seen in a boot. These blew the Fryes I tried out of the water. The sole is super thick leather with a stacked wood heel with a rubber heel. You put these on and it’s akin to a cowboy boot, so sizing is critical—they are on the substantial/heavy side so you shouldn’t size too tight. I bought a 5 which is an 8, and I usually wear a 7.5. I had to keep them, they are amazing. I wore them today for nearly 16 hours and my feet only started hurting at 7pm, and because I was on my feet.

Love these shoes. Sizing is challenging and these run big and in UK sizing. Zappos was awesome with exchanging to get the right fit. This is a winner.
