With the winter months drawing in, there is nothing more perfectly suited than a pair of Grain leather shoes or boots to style yourself through the season. Now you probably know we are not short of grain leathers, it's been tough but we have chosen our Top 5 Men’s Grain styles below.
Pembroke – Dark Brown Scotch Grain
To begin our Top 5 is Pembroke in Dark Brown Country Grain, a full brogue Derby shoe with wing tip design and punching detail. A style that has held its place in our Main Line Collection for nearly three decades, Pembroke’s popularity sees colourways added regularly to our seasonal retail collection – this year brings four Cordovan additions. Mounted on a Dainite Rubber sole with a storm welt, for added water resistance, this Derby shoe is certainly not just for the office.
Coniston – Tan Scotch Grain
A style that needs no introduction is the Coniston. A regular on our #madetobeworn social campaign, Coniston has grown from strength to strength over the years with four colourways now dominating our Main Line Derby boot collection. But a special mention of course to the original – Coniston in Tan Scotch Grain. Produced on a last famed for country styles, Last 325 offers a medium round toe, increased toe depth and plenty of room in the fore-part. Coniston has now graduated from country origins and can be found far and wide, dressed up and down.
Lowndes – Dark Brown Pebble Grain
Lowndes, our ever-popular double Monk Shoe in Dark Brown Pebble Grain is our favourite ‘crossover style’ for this Top 5. Featuring a classic square toe, Lowndes is produced on arguably one of the most important Lasts we have developed in recent times, Last 348. Sporting a ‘City’ Rubber sole, this Lowndes colourway offers the formality of a leather sole, but with the flexibility and practicality of our 'City' Rubber sole.
Cavendish – Dark Brown Pebble Grain
A Top 5 rarely seems complete without a mention of our famous tassel loafer, Cavendish, now in Dark Brown Pebble Grain. Introduced into our Main Line Collection for AW18, this Cavendish colourway was the first to sport our ‘City’ Rubber sole – a perfect pairing to take this regularly declared ‘Spring/Summer style’ into the colder months (although socks would be advised).
Chelsea 11 – Dark Brown Scotch Grain
Last, but definitely not least, for our Top 5 Men’s Grain styles is the ultimate winter Chelsea boot – Chelsea 11. Inspired from the success of ‘The Black Editions’ capsule collection, AW19 brought with it a new colourway for this style, Dark Brown Scotch Grain. Complete with a storm welt and an over-sized Vibram Cleated sole, this hearty boot is guaranteed to make a statement for those fashion forward customers steering away from a more traditional look.
