This season Ronnie Fieg continues his effort of collaborating with classic shoe makers to lay his touch on their catalog. UK based heritage shoe maker Grenson that has been producing their product for 140 years has teamed Fieg to craft the Spike V, Fred V and Fred C. The collection is premium leather built with brogue and duck boot styling.
Fieg describes the project as…
The new Spike V and Fred V are re-worked in premium waxed/burnished grey leathers while below sits a durable Vibram sole. The idea for the black Fred came from personally needing and wanting an all black brogue boot and I felt like this rich black waxy/oily leather and Commando sole was the perfect balance. The Spike duck boot features a twotoned design marked with its ridged toe and smooth upper body, while the Fred complements any outfit with its sleek brogue detailing. It was extremely important for people to see the shoe and still know it was a Grenson style, so the added red leather heel spike lets people know it’s not just a regular in line version but something truly special.
The UK built books are currently available through Kith.
