i also disagree. for one, Chris did go lower towards the end of the inventory cycle to the $200 range. and, i think they are a substantial step up from CT Loakes, which would be the closest comparable.

where can you find goodyear welted, modern yet classic, calfskin pieces at the price point?

My first pair of expensive shoes was a pair of Grenson Oxford full brogues. i bougth them three and a half years ago and they still look and feel splendid.

i also disagree with kitonbrioni's assessment of grenson masterpiece quality.

additionally, i believe chris went as low as $180 first pair, $160 second pair. there wasn't a whole lot left at that point, but that pricing is quite good.

I got mine for $135!! Most were priced at $250 - 10% though.

I got one more pair-black cap toe Masterpieces with a Dianite sole, down from $150 to $135.
Has anyone else noticed this? My Grensons seem more pliable than any of my other English shoes (EG, C&J, Church, etc.) and after a few wearings they seem to take on the shape of my foot more and fit better than anything else I own.

My Grensons, bought from the first Bennies sale, are my most comfortable pair of shoes. I don't know if it's due to the pliability of the shoe, but they feel very light on my feet (how I imagine ballet shoes to feel) and fit very well.
