Picked up these lightly worn Grenson Glenn boots on ebay. Despite being a G fitting, with the addition of an insole, they are a great fit, and very comfortable.
Just can't really figure out what trousers they go best with. Wearing them with jeans today, and visually it doesn't work.

Ordered one of the "Stanloey" models by email a couple of years ago. Awful quality, extremely disappointing. Poor quality leather, poor stitching, poorly finished. It's amazing what they can do with photos. Could never get the size right either and in the end asked for a refund. But the quality was very poor. Someone on this thread likened them to a slightly lower quality Trickers. Sorry, but do not agree, they are way way down. Trickers arre usually good solid shoes with good finishing. Maybe the G zero line made in Northampton has better quality, I haven't seen them, but the other lines, I would never risk it again personally.

Trying to work with the green rather than against it, I'm trying different trousers with these boots today.

I know I'm kinda bringing up an old thread, better than starting a new one.

Anybody have some final advice for me on sizing, I ordered a pair of size UK7 Grenson G1 Moorgate Oxfords, I"m typically a size 8 in most dress shoes. Site said to order true to size, but I've read differently in other places, to size down 1/2 or even 1 full size.

Dear gentlemen,

 

I've received my Grenson Moorgate today, and discovered something weird. 

 

 

Is this a sign of defect?

I would not say "defect" but if you're talking about the stitching, it's not the neatest.

Does anyone on here own the Grenson Ellery - Double Monk - Brown? I am considering purchasing these and would like to get feedback on the quality of the shoe?

 

Thanks

I believe I have these. Bought them at the local store a week ago. Quality is decent, but nothing to write home about. It is not Carmina by any strech of imagination, but then neither is the price and it is my casual shoe to be worn with chino's and jeans and casual pants.

Thank you for the feedback.

Hi All,

newbie here from Toronto and wanted to revive this older thread.

 

I bought on impulse a pr of Grenson Tom's High Shine on sale from Club Monaco and received them 

today. After I had ordered them, I then searched and found this thread about the G Two lineup.

Anyways, relatively new to the world of "nice" shoes and liked the look of these, but thought I would post 

a few pics and perhaps get some feedback on the shoes in general, seeing as the general consensus seems to 

be of a lower quality shoe.

They "seem" and look and feel quite nice to me, a touch narrow but stylish nonetheless. Not crazy $ but maybe

I'm the demo Grenson had in mind when marketing this lineup. Mind you on "sale" reasonable but regular list at

$400 is ridiculous, when for an extra $100-150 gets your Churches and such. 

thanks for all replies. They even forgot to take off the security tags LOL

cheers,

Hi Emidyl

 

I'm a newbie on the forum from Toronto as well and about a year and a half into the world of 'nicer' shoes.

 

I bought a pair of stanley's from CM in the sales and got a great deal.  Admittedly they feel a tangible step down in quality from the pair of Sanders boots and Herring brogues (at around the $400 mark, these are right at the bottom end of the QUALITY shoe scale) I purchased last year, but for your first pair of decent ones, they are going to be just fine.

 

They are still made using the proper methods, and checked by Grenson... and definitely better than anything you'll find in Browns or B2 or Aldo- And I think the look of the high shine you have on yours looks great.

 

The G2's aren't worth anything near the full price, but you got yours on sale so wear them happily while you shop for a quality pair next time!
