Will Grenson still re-craft Grenson Masterpiece Shoes

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a few pairs of Grenson Masterpiece shoes, and one will need a resole soon. I see that Grenson recrafts their shoes, but they don't produce the Masterpiece line anymore. Do those of you in this situation go with the original maker, even if they are not making that quality shoe anymore, or just send them to B. Nelson (I am in the states)?

I presume so! - But the easiest way to find out, e-mail Grenson and ask.

Yes, I have. Slow responding, but I guess my question is as much asking if since they've discontinued their line of higher end shoes, does it make sense to pay the premium, the long wait time, and international shipping for them to work on the shoes. If these were Edward Greens or G&Gs there would really be no question. I'll be a bit surprised if they won't work on them, so my question to you all is, should they?

Yes they do....it's just oak bark channelled sole...

I had a pair of Grenson Masterpiece Oundles recrafted by Grenson a few months ago, so yes they do still have the lasts and will accept the shoes for recrafting. However:

- they didn't give me "Masterpiece" soles, just the basic ones they use on their current shoes;

- the soles were stitched aloft rather than channelled; and

- the soles weren't trimmed back much, making the shoes look bulkier than they used to.

So all in all, I wasn't too impressed. frown.gif

I was glad to be able to wear those shoes again though, and I'll probably send them in for another recraft when the time comes if Grenson are still around then.

Thanks TKDKid, just what I wanted to know. Much appreciated, I think they will just go over to B. Nelson.
