A heritage shoe brand, Britain’s Grenson Shoes is renowned for its craftsmanship and high-quality footwear since its foundation in 1866. Today, creative director and CEO Tim Little continues to uphold traditional manufacturing, like the “Goodyear Welted” process (a time-consuming technique from the 1800s that gives the shoes their long life and easy repair), and keeps up with trends by producing footwear in contemporary styles and colors—in addition to their core line of well-loved classics.

Earlier this week, Little and the rest of the Grenson team were at New York’s Hotel On Rivington to showcase the upcoming spring/summer 2014 collection. Among the classic, year- round styles (on the glass shelves below), new color options and additions to the growing brand include a twist on the sneaker/shoe hybrid, a colorful and essential summer derby, blue soled shoes (above), and the introduction of a canvas tote, backpacks and a messenger briefcase that join the leather and suede carry alls (introduced earlier this year).
