Grenson for Tenue de Nîmes Whole Cut Gibson Shoes

Dutch denim boutique Tenue de Nîmes have teamed with English shoemaker Grenson for a third time, creating a limited run of what they call the ‘Whole cut Gibson.’ The upper of the shoe has been fashioned from a single cut of brilliant white nubuck leather, hence the name, and features no visible seams, albeit the stitched-on eyelet facings in a deep, contrasting blue. In addition to the accents provided by the tongue and panel that follows the lace track, a blue backstrap has been included down the length of the heel; should you turn over the shoe, you’ll reveal a blue hand-painted sole bearing the marks of both brands, the Grenson rose and the Tenue de Nîmes ‘cross.’ -jr
