What an awesome day today was, we went to Michigan to pick up a new puppy but before wife and I did that, we had a wonderful lunch with Josh, Parker and Lydia from Grant Stone. Randy Gilmore showed up towards the end of the lunch (he was playing golf) and if anyone reading this doubts the sincerity, commitment to quality and knowledge of the GS folks, don't doubt them. These guys KNOW shoes/boots and what it takes to build a company the right way. Those are our feet in Josh' picture. I know I had a great time, and honestly could have stayed a lot longer and talked the afternoon away about footwear, but I knew wife was anxious to go get the dog. Here is a pix of Parker (L), me (fat old guy-middle) and Josh (right) in the parking lot outside the Country Club in Michigan standing behind my GTI. Also a pix of the new puppy, because what is a shoe thread without a picture of dogs. Rumor has it there are some really cool GS products coming down the pike.

The lunch or the dog, just wondering.............


I occasionally toy with the idea of popping down to Xiamen on one of my Asia trips. I was flying to Bangkok a few weeks ago and they showed it on the in-flight map - lol. Looks like a cool city.

That's one of the things that if you are in the "neighborhood", why not go!

Awesome you could make it out to see them. Wife and I are actually visiting Baroda next month for a night, but the schedule is so tight that I doubt we’d be able to swing anything.

Unless of course there’s some magical shoe sitting around in 9.5e that I have to have lol

My wife and I had a great time visiting with them and would do it again anytime, just such nice folks and so much fun to talk to.

We've seen a little spike in sales, but it's going to be a slow steady seller for us. As we gain customers and more reviews, we hope to gain some traction and start attracting some of those who know they need wider widths. Even allow some of those who might not realize it yet, to jump into a wider width and let that foot spread.

We probably won't come out with the EEE loafers for a little while though.
Nothing has been set in stone with regards to a timeline.
Audog congrats on the puppy.

GS guys - This is great news. Which of your models are available in EEE? I went to the website and saw that one of the bluchers is offered in EEE - any others? I’ll be ordering a pair for sure!
