    I recently launched a small line of dress shoes for men. The shoes from the benchgrade line are made in Spain with Goodyear welt construction.

    I created the brand because I saw a lack in the American market of affordable shoes that are well made and and classically styled. The benchgrade shoes are made with leather uppers from France and Spain and with a leather insole, outsole and welt. There are none of the usual cost cutting measures such as corrected grain uppers, paperboard insoles or plastic welts. The goal was to create handsome, comfortable shoes that are made to last in terms of design and construction.

    All shoes are currently available in US sizes 9-13 D.

    Use code SF10 for 10% off in-stock benchgrade shoes and ties.

    Free shipping anywhere in the USA.

    Great looking shoes at great price. I've bought numerous items from you in past years (prior to you starting your own business) and you were always a gentleman. Good luck to you!

    Nice shoes even if a would like to see in the range a plain toe blucher which is the model i like the most. Even I wonder if it is possible to receive them directly from Spain, so guys in Europe receive them faster and don't have to pay custom fees...

    The lack of US 8 and 8.5 is due to a misunderstanding between me and the maker. I will definitely have these sizes for my second shipment.

    All the shoes run true to size with a D (medium) width. Within that range, the derby is the narrowest and the double monk is the widest. I fit into all three in size 9.5/10.5.

    Looking good. Hope you get some nice finishing on the black oxfords in the future! (medallion tip or w/e!)
