True to their tradition of genuine footwear craftsmanship, Grenson has recently unveiled The Triple Welt—a new series of shoes exclusive to gravitypope in Canada.

Born in 1835, William Green moved to the English county of Northamptonshire at the age of 4. This county is known as the home of the English shoemaker’s art and where William Green learned to handcraft boots from his mother until 1860. In 1866, William Green & Son was formed and soon became known for consistency of craftsmanship and materials. The ‘Grenson’ identity was formed in 1913 and was one of the first brand names to be registered in the UK. With Goodyear welted production at the heart of the Grenson business, the company has also introduced the Grens-In Sole to provide soft underfoot flexibility. Innovation in design and use of materials has kept Grenson modern while retaining the heritage and craftsmanship that confirms Grenson as England’s master shoemakers since 1866.

Moma and Grenson show us how their shoes are made!

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!

For men, the desert boot is definitely the darling of spring 2009. From leather to canvas there is a great range of finishes and a diverse neutral palette that reinforces the versatility of the desert boot. But if this boot is a little 'run of the mill' for you, check out the military inspired sunday boot by N.D.C. and the Fiorentini + Baker 713 duel strapped mid calf boot. Exceptional alternatives to the norm and fantastic boot additions to any man's closet.
