We’re feeling shoey today so you get Grenson as well as Church’s. They’ve added a longwing to the collection, which is a surprise as British shoe companies tend to duff up the longwing. We also caught up with Tim Little himself to catch a few quick words on the brand, Pitti itself and his favourite shoe from his collection.
Describe your brand in one sentence?
English shoes without the cobwebs
How long’s the brand existed?
What do you think of Pitti?
It’s good, I like it now. It’s much younger than it was 5 years ago.
Favourite bit from the collection and why?
A classic English saddle shoe upper with an ultra massive two soles stuck together. A vibram outsole in the bottom and then an EVA in the middle. It’s just a bit crazy.
Tell us something interesting about yourself, nothing to do with shoes?
I’m an enormous blues fan, I support Derby county and I’m not very interesting apart from that.
