Some of the Rushden's aren't too bad, but they're very variable.
The real low-end Grenson's are awful.
The old Grenson Masterpiece line seems defunct (were very nice), but there are still a few designs in the Grenson Rose line (dress shoes though) and they're nice quality, albeit with a slightly stiff (but robust) upper.

I've got a couple pairs of Grenson's for Rag & Bone and a pair they made for Black Fleece which are pretty nice quality.
But the Grenson branded stuff I've seen in stores have been pretty bad.
The Black Fleece ones are from summer of '10 so hopefully they're still producing the good stuff.

Grenson seems weird that way. Spurr has used Grensons in his shows. Not sure which line, but they looked very nice there: http://www.styleforum.net/t/228365/simon-spurr-fw11/0_50

Need some help choosing between:

http://www.barneys.com/Elf/077605013,default,pd.html?cgid=SHOES04 In black calf

or

http://www.barneys.com/Elf/077605013,default,pd.html?cgid=SHOES04


I've never handled the Buttero boots, so for anyone who's seen, tried or owned them please do add your opinion on fit, quality, sleekness, etc. I tried on the F+B and I really liked them, but I don't want to purchase without getting imput on the Buttero boots. Also for those in the Bay Area, which of the gimme shoes' has the best selection of F+B boots.

idk i feel those are a bit too plain for me, but if thats what you are going for than these would be good everyday sturdy boots,
although looks-wise the f&bs look better, its free shipping from barneys so u can take a risk

these look awesome but i probably would not wear.

they are awesome. let me correct myself, i wouldn't know how to wear them. aesthetically, they look pleasing to my eyes

jet, i actually like those. perhaps my eyes are lying and still following the hype of the chunky sole/creepers or w/e but i like them. in terms of quality etc. i have no clue. don't even know the maker.
now that i think about it, would wear here in northern cali winter (eh, might slip with that sole though). but since we're just given photos and my own lack of experience, i can only judge by the face value
