Moma and Grenson show us how their shoes are made!

Posted Jun 2, 2010 by gravitypope in moma, grenson, shoe making, MOMA

Ever wonder how the shoe making process works? These clips from gravitypope favorites Moma and Grenson show just that. It's fascinating just how different the manufacturing mechanisms are between the two, but after getting to know the lines from season-to-season, one can really see how each process makes sense for the overall character of each brand.  I'm sure Grenson & Moma fans out there would agree!
