Don’t Step on my Grant Stone Blue Suede Loafers

Grant Stone runs a unique operation. Part Southwest Michigan and part Xiamen, China, Grant Stone was started by co-founder Wyatt Gilmore after he spent 8 years learning culture and craft in the Xiamen factory.

Now providing high quality Goodyear welt footwear directly to the consumer, the brand has built up a loyal following and solid reputation. For Spring, Grant Stone’s Traveler Penny Loafer gets an update in midnight suede. While the Penny Loafer may seem a more high brow form of footwear to some, its merit comes in its versatility.

Dressed up or dressed down, this classic can go with a sport coat or cropped selvedge jean and everything in between. As customary with Grant Stone, the Traveler is Goodyear welt constructed, built on an Alexander last, utilizing calf suede from CF Stead and a full grain leather lining from Milwaukee, WI.

With each pair meticulously handcrafted in China, the Traveler will be a steadfast companion that is always going to turn heads in this indigo iteration.

Available for $295 at Grant Stone.
