    Looks dope. Reminds me of some of the Undercover womens F/W stuff from the last few seasons.* Who makes it?

    ^^ I think Fuuma was looking for something with a white sole, maybe all white tho.


    That Undercover Fall 09 is seriously one of my favorite collection, always enjoy browsing it.

    This past fall I was in Bloomingdales SoHo and they had some pairs of Grenson Sharps that were marked made in India on the inside leather, so I asked the SA about it. He said that's how they've been for the past year now. He assured me the quality was still good, and they do something dumb like lace up the shoes at the UK factory so they can still stamp the sole "Grenson England" or whatever. Either way I didn't buy those (just wanted to test sizing and didn't like the leather offerings they had) and instead tracked down a different pair. I got some in Kudu leather and they are made in England, although I think they were a sample from a year or two ago so that could explain it..

    I think the Rushden line is the one made in India, no idea about the others but I'm sure some models are still really made in England.

    I got some grenson fred which is supposedly from the made in india line. They are cool, but suspiciosly light weight, and leather is far from trickers and even alfred sargent imo. Nice beaters, but I wouldnt pay full price for them.

    Yeah sorry I did. I only ask because the Made in India ones I handled in Bloomingdales were surprisingly light to me as well, but had Dainite soles.

    Bobo, how did you size your Freds? I'm thinking about ordering a pair from pediwear soon and emailed them and they weren't very helpful (not for lack of trying though).
