A Selvedge Shoe: Tenue De Nimes x Grenson

Behold the denim English work boot.

The Amsterdam denim haven Tenue de Nimes takes its name from the French city where the fabric originated (denim being an anglicized, literal translation of de Nimes). So you can expect a heavy dose of selvedge in many of the store’s special projects—even when it teams up with a brand with zero denim heritage, like it’s just done with Grenson. The two aren’t strangers, having worked together on a black brogue boot last year, and their latest project represents a nice medium between both the store and the English shoe brand’s area of expertise. Inspired by a 19th-century infantry model from the Grenson archives, this Glenn Boot, hand-made in England, combines a rich Expresso Cyclone leather with a British Millerain denim canvas, giving the boot a saddle shoe effect in tonality, and a textural touch unique amid the current work-boot boom.
