Grenson, Loake, and Sanders

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been exploring the wonderful world of English shoes and would like to know how Sanders and Grenson hold up in terms of quality. I've read alot about impressions on Laoke here on SF. How do Grenson (especially their Rose collection) and Sanders compare?

Thanks for your input!

My only experience with Sanders has been in the form of a pair of double monks they made for E.T. Wright. I like them better than my top-end Loakes, though they're in the same ballpark.

Any other impressions on Grenson or Sanders?

no impressions vis a vis the Grenson Rose line, but the mostly discontinued Grenson Masterpiece line is superlative (about C&J handgrade quality), and the mostly discontinued Grenson Footmaster line was very good (roughly C&J benchgrade quality). I suspect that the Rose line is similar to the old Footmaster line in terms of quality, but possibly with more refined lasts and patterns.

I wear a pair of Sanders Chukkas in suede bought from Pediwear a couple of years ago. I'm very happy with them, and I think they measure up to Loake 1880 or Alfred Sargents lines in quality. A pic from a recent wearing:

I have a pair of Grenson Ilkleys and a few pairs of Loake shoes (1880 level). The Grenson boots are much nicer - good construction, great leather (good colour, develops good patina, very durable). On discount the Loake are decent.
