While the folks at Freemans Sporting Club have had to say goodbye to their famous in-store barber shop, they are making good use of the space in a way that should make their regular customers very pleased by devoting it to a pop-up shop for British shoe brand Grenson. A classic English shoe brand founded in 1866 and known for its high quality but slightly sleepy fashion sense, Grenson's fortunes changed in 2005 when it brought designer Tim Little on board to give its product line some pizazz. Now its CEO, Little made Grenson a coveted brand by turbo-charging its classic style without going totally off the rails. Now it is beloved by shoe aficionados for chunky triple soles and bold, inventive broguing details as well as for sturdy the Goodyear welted construction that allows you to wear a pair practically forever with proper care and maintenance. FSC is hosting the pop-up which boasts the largest selection of Grenson ever presented at retail in the U.S. and will also offer customers an exclusive opportunity to design their own shoes and contribute to creating a style that will ultimately be made exclusively for the store. Don't dawdle. The pop-up is only going to be open for six weeks, so if you wait for actual Spring weather to arrive before you shop for your Spring shoes, you may have missed the boat, but if you are a Grenson enthusiast, you probably planned a trip down to Rivington Street the minute you saw our headline. Don't miss it.
