Grenson

My friend Erin introduced me last year to an English based shoe brand by the name of Grenson and I instantly fell for their modern take on the classic derby, oxford, loafer, brogue, etc... William Green, founder of Grenson, learnt the shoe trade from his mother then opened his first factory in 1874; Grenson was one of the first brands to use the Goodyear welt construction method and still dominates the shoe industry thanks to Tim Little who took over the brand in 2005, turning it around and making it into the forward thinking that we know today. I have been enjoying following their Instagram feed, very inspiring as Autumn is upon us...

Here are my Grensons - the Jessie (in tan) and the Jasmine. I must say, they are the most comfortable non-sneaker shoes I own! What are your favorite everyday shoes?
