Grizedale, a plain front derby boot in black russian grain, featuring the chunky cleated rubber sole from Vibram, black eyelets and a heavier weight lace. A half bellows tongue, ensures no water penetrates the lace area during wet weather usage, and a half leather lining with a waterproof membrane interlining, ensure comfort, warmth whilst maximising water-resistance.
Russian Grain is a very special leather indeed. Made from young English Ox hides, Russian Grain is produced by an old English tannery, who specialise in traditional vegetable tanning. The tannery is believed to have been situated on its current site since Roman times, and although the name of the tannery has changed, the oak bark tanning process remains almost unchanged.

Preorder Production Begins:
The Preorder Process
How it works
THE SELECTION: Each season, will see a curated selection of limited editions released. These will form an offering of rare and unique styles.
TIMESCALE: Every preorder product is available to purchase for a designated period of time only, usually 1 month. Once that period of time has elapsed, as illustrated by a count-down timer found on your product of choice, it will be consigned to the archives once again…
INTO THE FACTORY: A production order will then be raised with our factory and many skilled hands will go to work! Production time is usually 16 weeks depending on the time of year, and each customer will be given regular updates, receiving imagery of your shoes or boots during the production process.
PRICING: Preorders are paid for in advance to guarantee a product slot, but we have kept pricing in line with our ready-to-wear collections, with no ‘special order’ premium being charged. The ‘Preorder Collection’ will be available to purchase via our website only.
