Grenson shoes are an English institution having been made by a family run firm since 1866. William Green started the business with the specific aim to make some of the highest quality footwear available. He hired master craftsmen to realise his dream and that dedication to quality still shows today. Grenson shoes are “Goodyear Welted”, a process invented in the 1800’s in England that is a time consuming way of making shoes. However this means that the product lasts longer than any other type of shoe. It also means that the shoe can re-soled many times over making them a wonderful investment. To own a Grenson shoe is to own a bit of English history, harking back to a time when things were done properly and quality counted for a lot.
