Having previewed these at a Pitti past, we return to Grenson Fall/Winter 2012. The British brand continue their balancing act between modern and traditional, keeping purists and trend fans alike happy. Classics such as a cap toe black grain oxford and a monochrome spectator are favourites, those who enjoy those clean white vibram style soles will be pleased to see them used extensively throughout. Boots seem to be high on the priority list too, a duck boot and their take on the monkey boot look solid in every sense. One thing that should also be mentioned about Grenson is comfort. Unlike many bench made shoes these are wearable straight out of the box, break-in march around the house not needed. Truly foot friendly.
