Footwear historians say it wasn’t until 1818 that the right shoe was invented, but we think this is where history is inaccurate. The right shoe was actually invented in 1866 by William Green in Northamptonshire. When we say ‘right’, we don't mean the opposite of the left one. We mean shoes that were created for soldiers, that have been ‘Goodyear Welted’ (so they last a lifetime), that take eight weeks to make, involve 200 different operations and have been seen on men’s feet at Pitti Uomo. A Grenson is the right shoe as well as the shoe for right now. Shop our edit of the Bobby, Dylan, Fred and Declan styles by Grenson below.
