    My Grenson balmorals just came in. At long last, I can post in this thread. God, I love them already....

    Comfy enough with athletic socks - dress socks should be a breeze. Just love the fit.

    That does it. I'm saving up for another pair.

    As soon as I can - likely Spring at the earliest, the way bills pile up. Fortunately, Christmas shopping is pretty much done, so I won't have to worry about paying for that in January. I heard somewhere that Grenson doesn't make this model anymore, so once the Natural Shoe Store runs out, that's it.

    Which sucks, because now they only have one pair left in my size.

    They look splendid. Maybe I'll buy a pair myself. Which size do they only have one pair left of? Or is its a secret?

    JV, those are really bold. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do mine.

    Thanks!

    The price at the moment for the Handgrade MTOs is something around 700-770£.

    Thanks! They are works of art. I don't pull them out nearly as much as my Bristols (which recently had a complete resole due to my wearing them into the ground).

    Chay is an awesome gent to work with and just a good fella all around.
