With a focus on the “historically new,” Garbstore acts as a time machine of sorts, remaking and re-imagining vintage garments using old techniques and original materials. In many ways, then, its collaboration with traditional British shoemaker Grenson was a natural partnership — established in 1866, the footwear company still adheres to a process that takes up to three weeks to complete a pair of its Goodyear-welted shoes. The limited-edition Garbstore x Grenson collection for Fall/Winter 2012 draws from this rich tradition of heritage shoemaking with a duo of contemporary yet classic silhouettes. Experiencing a renaissance of sorts in recent years, the monkstrap features in the collaboration, reworked in Navy and Mushroom calf leather suede and comfortable English crepe soles. The High Leg Boot, meanwhile, provides a little more protection from seasonal elements with an 8-eyelet silhouette, its uppers constructed from luxury calf leather suede, and a calf heel panel. Elsewhere, a hand-cut welted sole provides durability and a dose of traditional style. As always, both footwear options are bench made by hand in Northampton, England.

The Garbstore x Grenson 2012 fall/winter collection is available for purchase now at our online store.
