@iamrainbird & Grant Stone Shoes

There comes a time in every man’s life when the general run of the mill brogue or longwing don’t quite cut it anymore. This happens when you slip your foot in to something extremely superior. Well ladies and gents, that happened to me last week.

To set the stage, I’ve owned a lot of shoes. Ranging from regular caps to double monks. They’ve been good…treated me well but been garbage in about eight months of use.

Enter Grant Stone. After conversations with them I could tell they were a step above the norm. Extremely polite and very accommodating. Making me feel not only special but also solid in my choice. From discussing fit to style they had it all covered.

Wyatt, director of Grant Stone, is third generation in the shoe business. Wyatt’s introduction to shoemaking began at D.W. Frommer’s Bootmaking School in Oregon. While at Frommer’s, he learned not only the hand making process, but as equally important, the “no compromise” philosophy behind every bespoke pair.

Thereafter, he traveled to China where he began interning at a Goodyear-welt shoe factory in Xiamen. Here, he sourced better grade materials from respected tanneries worldwide (USA & Europe) envisioning the production of premium shoes and boots.

A few weeks ago I opened my email and was absolutely delighted to see images of my OWN shoes being hand made….im not sure you would get that from a big box store now would you?

Doesn’t look like much does it? Well…just wait. A few more days go by and I get another email stating that my shoes are ready for delivery with a few more images….

These shoes are made from Hand Cut leather and given that extra special care by real people.

Following the few days shipping I come home from a business trip and find the Box waiting for me. I rush inside, drop my suitcase and put them on. These things are the most comfortable items that have EVER been on my feet…apart from sneakers and those ridiculous cartoon character slippers we all had as kids.

Ive now been wearing them over the course of a week… they’ve moulded to my feet, look absolutely gorgeous and honestly feel like they will last for years. Theyre going to be a staple in my closet for a long time to come.

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
