English shoe label Grenson is built upon a base of rich heritage and timeless designs. Founder William Green learned the trade from his mother, who made and sold shoes from their home after the death of her husband. Green continued refining his craft, and as the business grew, he moved from production into a sourcing role, formalizing the company, and calling it William Green & Son. In 1874, the company moved into the Greens Yard factory, and Green & Son became Grenson. In 1895, the brand moved into a larger Queen Street factory, which remains the heart of Grenson’s production today.
