Grenson Shoes was started by just one man, William Green. It was William’s mother Grensonbwho taught him his trade as he helped her to produce mens boots at home. William died at the start of the twentieth century (1901) but he had left behind him such a solid foundation that the company continued to go from strength to strength during the twentieth century.
In 2005 Tim Little was hired to turnaround the company as it had begun to decline, and after 5 years of extensive restructuring he eventually took it over in 2010 and he and his team still run it today.

All Grenson shoes are “Goodyear Welted”, a process invented in the 1800’s in England that is a time consuming way of making shoes, but means that the product lasts longer than any other type of shoes.
