2pr grenson masterpieces, sz 13

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I decided not to keep two pairs of Grenson Masterpieces I bought from Bennies. Both a US size 13D. Thought I'd offer them here and save Chris the trouble: The first pair is a Norwegian toe Chukka boot in what Edward Green would call dark oak - a beautifully antiqued dark brown. The soles are not channeled on this pair (prototype maybe??) but they definitely aren't Footmasters - with the exception of the lack of channeling, the rest of the boot is definitely up to Masterpieces standards: The second pair is a classic penny loafer in tan: Handsewn toe on both. Both brand new and perfect. $149 each, plus actual shipping costs to wherever you are. The first person to PM me gets them. Remember, these are $575 plus tax at Paul Stuart.

Can I ask if those shoe trees are a good fit? I had a hard time finding shoe trees that were narrow enough to fit my 7.5D pairs. I ended up carving up a pair of shoe trees to make them fit and I would rather avoid that in the future. dan

Yes, they fit well, but that won't be a help to anyone here (those babies are old and I bought them from a consignment shop.) My advice on shoe trees is to buy them from a variety of sources and swap them around until you find the best fit for each shoe. That is what I do.

I don't have much experience with Alden or Allen Edmonds personally, but the Grensons run very true to size in my opinion.

A Harris- Did your first responder to the offer for the boots take them ? My question on channeling was simply a definition. What is is the term and how does it relate to the boot fit? thanks, ferry1950

Update - the chukka's sold, but the loafers are still available. As for channeling - a channeled sole is one where the sole stitching is hidden in a "channel" so that the sole is smooth. It does not affect the fit at all.

A.Harris- Thanks for the update and keeping me in the loop. I have enough brown loafers, but if you run into anymore 13 D quality shoes, please post. ferry1950

Any chance we could get a volume discount?  Say, $100/pair if buy 3 or more pairs?
