Grenson Sid long wing Brogues

December 31, 2012

Under the stewardship of Tim Little, the resurgence of Grenson is in full swing. The range has increased dramatically with a plethora of great footwear now available from the brand and as such, choosing shoes from them has never been easier/harder – there’s lots of great shoes but which pair to go for?

Well for me, these stood out as soon as I clapped eyes on them. The ‘Sid’ is Grenson’s quintessential English long wing Brogue, and this version comes with their ‘Hi Shine’ upper, in a great shade of honey brown with delicate punched broguing.

Features include a Goodyear storm welt (which sits higher on the upper than a normal welt), which via white stitching is attached to a waxed and polished triple leather sole with a stacked heel. Five brass eyelets are home to waxed leather laces with a subtle black piping running up the lace stays and around the ankle.

The finishing touch is the elegant Red leather inner sole embossed with Grenson’s flower logo and the brand mark also finds itself embossed into the outsole. They’re available from Manchester’s Togs & Clogs here: Sid Longwing Brogue where they’re now in the sale. For more information on the brand itself, go to the website here: Grenson.

    I’ve seen them in person, proper show stoppers. Your blog has been great this year, a pleasure to read

      Cheers Mat, I’ve no idea how I’ve managed to keep it going this year with everything else that’s been going on. Thanks for reading it regularly and being so supportive of it. All the best for 2013.

    Nice shape and colour but far too shiny for my tastes. These aren’t English made either are they?
