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.
Developed by craftsmen in their own factory, the special sole and welt construction is a great example of true artisanal shoemaking unique to Grenson Shoes.
gravitypope received two Triple Welt styles for Fall 2014—now available in-stores and online!
For four days only, gravitypope is hosting a Vancouver outlet sale to beat all outlet sales. We've expanded our space and doubled in size! Come down and check it out—we guarantee it'll be worth it. (P.S. If you need more convincing, there'll be food trucks and 33 Acres is just around the corner for a celebratory post-sale drink. How could you say no?)

With a following largely based in Europe, Finnish sneaker brand Karhu (meaning bear) has been around since 1916. This year they approached Sweden's Sneakersnstuff (SNS)—one of the world's leading sneaker stores—to get creative with their shoes.
SNS embraced their Scandinavian roots and used the opportunity to pay homage to one of their favourite cultural icons: Moomin, a Finnish comic/cartoon character now adored world-wide. (If you have a chance, we'd highly recommend reading up on Moomin's fascinating beginnings as illustrator Tove Jansson's WWII satire against the Nazis!)
The collaboration presents Karhu's classic Albatross silhouette (first introduced in 1982) in two all-over prints. The first is decked out in flowers from the Moominvalley, home to the Moomins. The second shoe is decorated with the character "Little My". In the words of SNS:
"Little My could be our favorite character in the Moomin family. Adopted by the Moomins, Little My has that "stick it to the man" mentality that is perhaps more relevant today than it has been since the end of World War II. Her balance between always being fair, yet still keeping a very punk mentality is something that we all can relate to, so to be able to put her on a shoe was something that we are very happy about."
With only 300 pairs produced globally, gravitypope is thrilled to be one of a few exclusive retailers to carry SNS x Karhu's Moomin collaboration. Check the shoes out in-store and online now!
