    Gentlemen,

    Anyone take a pair of Grenson formal pumps? If so, how did they fit?

    With thanks,

    H.

    I ordered a pair, they should be here soon. What size are you interested in. If they dont fit me, I can send them directly to you.

    Thanks for your kind offer.

    I ordered a pair and will have to send them back. They don't fit in the wamp area, though there is some extra area in the heel. A strange fit for me. And I wear a 10.5. or 11. These were 10.5's and I can't imagine a 10 fitting and certainly an 11.

    I even tried with different hose. (formal silk, and a heavier-weight (though still thin).

    Perhaps it's just the last? I've heard that the Radley's (another Grenson loafer -- though I don't know if same last as the Grenson opera pump) can fit tightly on the vamp.

    All in all, though a good formal shoe and I wished they'd fitted. Can beat the quality for US$100.
