Tenue de Nîmes enjoyed such positive reactions after the release of the first Grenson x Tenue de Nîmes brogue that a second interpretation had to follow soon. This shoe has been part of English shoemaking heritage for well over 100 years. The wingtip brogue was originally a country shoe. The holes in them were functional back then, rather than mere decoration: they’d let the water out when worn on walks across the bogs. The brogue has long since migrated to the city and this one is very elegant with its grey nubuck upper, and contrasting white eyelets and laces. Tenue de Nîmes finished it off with a hand-painted, double leather white sole. The shoes are marked with a combination of the Grenson ‘rose’ and the Tenue de Nîmes ‘cross’ embossed on the in and outsole. Handmade in England, these limited edition shoes are now available here.
