Grenson for girls


I first came across the shoe label Grenson while looking for some brogues for the Stickman last year. We noted the quality and workmanship that goes into making a pair of Grenson shoes (it takes around three weeks from start to finish), sighed at the prices (from £170 upwards) and though no more of this classic shoemaker.

Until the sales that is. Which is when I discovered that just last season, Grenson had launched its very first collection for women. Same styles as its men's line, but with a narrower fit. And now they were reduced. To half price.

So I snapped up this pair called Eliza from the Grenson website. A smart mix of grey suede and shiny black patent, it was down from £170 to £85. Now, you'd pay £85 for a pair of high-street shoes, wouldn't you? And these are so much more. They're made to last. And made with love. Right here in the UK. They don't call it 'the good shoe' for nowt, you know.

Which brings me onto the service. Fast, efficient and beautifully wrapped in brown paper. I was even allocated a one-hour time slot for delivery which sure beats waiting around all day. Grenson, I'm impressed (as if I wasn't already).

  1. These are stunning shoes, my love of brogues shows no signs of wavering. I always choose a well made brogue that gets better with age rather than one that looks awful after a couple of wears - these look ace! xxx
