Quality Of Grenson Shoes - Page 8

post #106 of 132

Hi there.

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

What does "pretty decent quality" for a pair of Chukka equate these days? When I ordered and received a pair of Tetburys in C&J 348 I was disappointed to level that I sent them back. I'm sure they constitute "pretty decent quality" but for £275+ I do not perceive them as great value as opposed to many of the oxfordstyles which C&J manufacture. 

 

Are these (Footmaster) great value at £229,99? Are G&G Arran great value at £600? (Which is currently a special offer at bespoke-england.co.uk).

 

Any feedback is welcome.

I think you can compare them to the current G1 range. But that said, I wouldn't pay 230UKP for them since they are old stock. Would pay that if they were old stock Masterpiece range Grensons though.

Hello

 

I am looking at the black Grenson Lucas, and I really really like it.

 

I work in a semi-casual work environment.  No jeans except on Fridays, but also no ties or suit jackets. Id probably wear them twice a week, and I would like them to last a VERY long time over multiple resolings.  I walk to work, so Im a bit hard on them.

 

I am purchasing about 5-6 pairs of shoes/boots all at once here, mostly from Meermin, Loake (1880) and Allen Edmonds.  But the Grenson Lucas fills a specific niche in my collection I am looking for, the washed black leather and natural sole with a bit of a 'hipster' look.  I am concerned about the quality however, as its their G Two line.

 

I cannot seem to find anything similar to the Lucas that is of better quality.  I found this one by floresheim duckie brown, but I think its likely worse!

 

If there is something else out there please do tell. I have looked and come up empty handed.  Or is the lucas my best bet given my style requirements. I understand there is not much out there like that.

 

My budget is high, likely under 400 US for the right shoe.

 

Thanks!

With your budget, which is not high, Grenson is a good choice as they are a fashion orientated brand. Next step up would be Trickers.

With your budget I would avoid the Grenson G:2 line, go with G:Zero or G:1 line.
For your purpose you can also check Paul Smith shoes or Septieme Largeur for consideration.

I would suggest looking into a pair of Barkers instead.

These get a walk every now and then (today), had em 24 + years and still get admiring looks and comments.

They get looked after, very kindly when required, on the bench at C & J Northampton.

Try Tim Little shoes (especially their TL 14 Last shoes). They are all made in Grenson's Northampton factory, and more stylish than what Tim Little the man (and owner) is doing to Grenson. TL shoes are on sale now.
