SHOPPING: GRENSON WIDE WELT COLLECTION

After launching last year a collection of old styles from the beginnings to 60s for its 150th anniversary, Grenson introduced for this fall winter its first Wide Welt collection. Inspired by the same desire to celebrate the classic British shoe, known for a strong toe and a large welt, this capsule collection presents three new styles, Dermot, Desmond and Douglas (derby and boots in black or walnut). In addition to the wide welt, these styles have been updated with a double thickness leather sole and for some styles (Desmond and Douglas) with a bold cap toe. I especially love the clean uppers, without any distraction or rich texture, making our eyes focus just on the slick lines and smooth leather.
