Mr Porter visit Grenson Shoes

by Adam the Editor

Second Mr Porter post of the day and this time I thought you’d like to see their latest video!

The team at Mr Porter paid a visit to the Grenson shoe factory in Northamptonshire. The company has been around since 1866 and still utilises traditional shoe-making techniques to produce quality styles including Brogues, Derbys, Oxfords and Loafers.

The craftsmanship involved in producing a single pair of shoes is extraordinary and the quality is second to none. I am a particular fan of their Stanley Wingtip Brogue. The shoe has a classic, leather sole with typical brogue detailing.

£180 from Mr Porter

The video beautifully showcases the processes a pair of Grenson shoes go through from start to finish including the leather scouring, cutting and stitching as well as the moulding and lacing.

Grenson has a transactional website and Mr Porter stock a selection here.
