    I've been looking into Grenson shoes, and it seems that the popular Rose line was discontinued and is being replaced by the G1 line as described here . However, this post was almost a year ago and I can't find anything more recent on the G1 line. Does anyone have any info? Thanks.

    Seemimgly they are starting to appear with first models being shown on the Mr Porter site with, again seemingly, the full line to appear on the Grenson site soon.

    It automatically changed it to the United States pricing for me and it says $370. One of those prices has to be wrong...

    On the mrporter site that I can access from India, the G-1s are 530 GBP. I am not paying 530 for Grensons. I would spend a 100 GBP more and get G&Gs

    Seems to be a vast difference in the price for the very same pair of shoes right from £230 to £530 ?? Would seem to be a Mr Porter thing rather than a Grenson policy. Will be very interesting to see what price Grenson will be selling these at when they finally launch. £230 in the US seems a very decent price for what have been billed (By Grenson) as Masterpiece equivalents ???

    I too would be very interested to find out what the quality is like , is it Rose line equivalent or Masterpiece line ?? Tim Little did state that the line would be more Rose if i read his quote to me correctly...

    ""We now have a factory that makes only the highest grade shoes in the highest
    grade materials. We are one of the few factories whose shoes are 100% made
    in the factory the old way, we don't make anything that is part made in
    India. These shoes are called G1 now, I changed it from The Rose Collection
    for clarity. I will also be introducing a super high end range (or making
    G1 all super high end) like masterpiece only nicer in due course,
    but you
    rest assured that if you buy a G1 shoe, it is made 100% in our factory the
    old way - ask other factories if they can guarantee this!"

    So are the G1's we are now seeing Rose line quality or G1's all super high end? Time will tell......

    Is $370 around what the Rose collection used to cost?

    Grenson Rose new would cost about £250-£270 dependant upon model and retailer so what your being asked to pay is slightly cheaper for what must be Rose line quality. What we are being asked to pay, it must be said by Mr Porter, is considerably more for what seems to be Rose Line. Just dont get it ??? £445 !!!! I'm sure answers will come in the fullness of time.

    Judging by the pictures of the sole they are nicer than the Rose collection shoes I have, closer to MP specs - though we won't know until someone gets a pair up close and personal.

    Yea $370 seems like a steal for these. If the GZero was in another color, I would definitely consider purchasing it.

    Sorry to resurrect this, but I've been checking out some Grenson shoes on MrPorter. They do look very appealing, sort of edgy but classic. I'm a little concerned about the quality. How is the "Gzero" line? MrPorter claims they're goodyear welted and "handmade" in Northampton England for what it's worth.
