1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    This site seems to have them for about $280; they have channelled leather soles, so I'm sure they would have been up on Bennie's Monday sale if they were in stock. I got mine for about $150 last year and have ever since then been fruitlessly trying to get another one in brown for not too much more. I've been experiencing some of the same peeling on the sole that other Grenson buyers have; don't know if the way I wear my shoes (fairly hard) may have contributed. It is a great looking shoe, though.
    I asked Solely Shoes about the Claude a while back - I liked the idea of getting a pair of wholecut chelsea boots - but they said the model's been discontinued and that they just hadn't updated their website yet. The soles of the standard Grenson Footmaster model are stitched aloft; I think you must've picked up an "enhanced" pair which was made as a special order.

    I seem to remember a forum member offering a pair of dark brown Grenson chelsea boots (with channelled soles so presumably made to Masterpiece standards) for sale here recently and posted some nice pics.

    That's a disappointment. I really like both the Claude and the Carson, the suede chukka boot just above the Claude on the solelyshoes website.

    Damn, this $250 deal doesn't sound that great now. [​IMG]

    Shoes are being edited as we speak, I am going to start putting them up now, it will be randonm as to sizes, but the original links for the leather soles will take you to them according to size

    Sorry, Chris, don't mean to rush. I'm just hanging out at the house on a Saturday afternoon.
