Shoe love: The Wingtip Brogue by Grenson for Tenue De Nimes.
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.
