Having previously purchased a pair of Dr.Marten ‘Polley’ shoes (seen in a previous blog post – Fred Perry) after being nicknamed Polly Pocket by the girls on a night out, I can now finally add an Emily pair to my ever growing collection.
Grenson who have offered men’s shoes since 1866, and who are known for their quality, craftsmanship and durability, recently added a women’s collection in 2011.
All Grenson shoes are “Goodyear Welted”, a process invented in the 1800’s in England that is a time consuming way of making shoes, they can be re-soled many times so they last longer than any other type of shoes.

But don’t worry boys, Grenson have created a version of the Emily shoe for you too with Archie and Fred which is a boot version of the classic brogue.

Now all that is left to do is to decide which colour to save up for first…
