With our unpredictable British weather now finally relenting, it is the perfect opportunity to discover footwear that is suitable for both grey days and our hopeful summer. There’s always a certain level of difficulty in finding a shoe that is able to take you through all seasons; something practical enough to step confidently on icy ground yet also simple enough for the warmer weather.
With this in mind, I would like to introduce you to the ‘Finlay Suede 5 Eyelet Gibson’ in cobalt, which is available online at Peggs & Son as part of the new Grenson SS13 collection.
Grenson, who have been lovingly crafting shoes since 1866, still follow the same painstaking construction process they did at their inception. The method, “Goodyear Welted”, is time consuming, with each pair taking three weeks to craft. However, the final product lasts longer than any other type of shoe, ensuring that their footwear is built to last and should be considered true investment pieces.
Grenson’s new Finlay Gibson shoe lacks unnecessary detailing, which allows the cobalt blue suede upper to draw all the attention. By keeping the silhouette so clean and minimal, it ensures this striking contemporary colour way sits on the right side of refined. This is a shoe that would look as good with your chinos at the weekend as it would in a summer fabric suit during the week.
Coming complete with high quality leather soles and a traditional five eyelet lacing system, they really are the perfect fusion of fashion and function.
Available online now at Peggs & Sons.
