I bought it's cousin a few months ago:
Just what I expected, also thought it looked like as if the welt had come loose.The insole is okay by the way, the shoes are perfectly wearable. These shoes have fully leather insoles too.About a possible resole fault: these shoes are still on their original Grenson branded soles, I don't think they ever had a resole.
If it doesn't say "made in England" on the inside of the shoe they are made in India. Also, Rushden line has red insole cushioning, Rose line dark brown.
Yes, this is how they looked when bought (I stripped, cleaned and repolished them now):http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/showimage.aspx?gid=527764&image=535883241&images=535882924,535882974,535883016,535883059,535883099,535883147,535883195,535883241,535883294&formats=0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0&format=0
My thoughts exactly.DWFII: care to share your thoughts? Ever seen anything like this?It looks as if a part of the sole curved upwards.
Grenson Rose is made in the UK
I got these Grenson Rose oxfords from Ebay and upon arrival I noticed the welt of one shoe is angled on the inside of the shoe. Also, the toe cap stitching has let loose at the exact same point as where the welt is angled. I wondered what could have caused something like this (never seen it before) and if it the welt can be puled flat again when I have the shoes resoled (full resole).

I was in a local shoe store last week and noticed they sold K-Shoes. I was under the impression they were gone, but the sales assistant told me that they are in business again. Anyone know the details? Are they still based in the UK and are the shoes still being made in the UK? All I can find online is that they have been bought by Clarks in the 80's and I see that Clarks does sell a range called K-Shoes but that are low budget women's shoes, not the English styled men's...
