It really doesn’t get much more exciting than this!! For the Spring/Summer 2011 lineup, Grenson is offering all of the things that I wish every company would offer: colored laces, contrasted colored soles, teal/blue colored shoes, some form of saddle shoe, spectators etc. I love the fact that someone (besides me) has made a teal colored shoe that can be sold to the world. I really hope that many distributing stores buy those shoes so that I can catch someone in the act of wearing them. How awesome would that be!! Grenson had a big year in 2010 and I feel that with the direction that it would appear that they are going, 2011 is going to be even bigger! And I am happy about that. It is refreshing to see a major company releasing shoes in non-traditional styles, using lots and lots of COLOR!!!

I love how Grenson manages to stay fashion forward while still maintaining relatively high quality workmanship for the price. The craftsmanship beats big labels like D&G, Armani etc. hands down, and the designs are WAY cooler!
I really hope that their bespoke and MTM services really take off, and here’s to teal suede someday!

Benjy – Teal suede…..HMMMMMMM sounds interesting!! I just might have to add that to my checklist of crazy stuff to make!
Ooooh…I like those Navy and White Brogues. I like all the colors. But I really like the perforations on those. I dig the teal and powder blue. It’s like a bag of Skittles. I’m inclined to become an apprentice and learn the trade. Maybe just a few classes here in New York City. I think whatever you have is rubbing off on me, because I can’t seem to get enough.

The Engineer – You should take up some shoemaking classes. As a person who appreciates the creation of things (hence your name) I think that you would find it quite intriguing and enjoyable.
