Grant Stone was founded in 2016, but the groundwork for the company started being laid decades ago - when the son of a renowned New England boot-and-shoe salesman built a relationship with a shoe factory in China. Decades later, his son packed his bags and moved from Michigan to Xiamen, China, to work in that very same factory. Eight years after that, Grant Stone (the boot brand, there is no person named Grant Stone) was born.

Not interested in cutting corners or dropping prices, Grant Stone boots are made from the very best materials, sourced globally, & assembled utilizing difficult (but superior) construction methods to create a product that will speak for itself. Their relationship with the factory gives them incredible flexibility with their designs, leaving room to experiment and develop new processes on the workshop floor more quickly and easily than other brands.

The Traveler Penny says it all in the name: it's a Penny Loafer thats comfortable and sturdy enough to travel in. They're really suitable for year-round wear, and about as classic as it gets, with a sleek 360 degree goodyear flat welt and handsome moc stitched toe - they wear comfortably with socks or barefoot, and are extremely stylistically versatile.

These are built on Grant Stone's Alexander last, a custom D-width slip on last with a medium instep, comfortably roomy (but not wide) toe box, and a more narrow waist & heel. This last is quite accommodating for most feet, and generally fits best when taken 0.5 size smaller than your brannock size.

The leather is an extremely handsome bourbon cowhide suede from Charles F. Stead Tannery in Leeds, England. C.F. Stead are renowned for their unique and masterfully tanned leathers, particularly their different suede and exotic hides. The bourbon suede is no exception, with a remarkably soft hand and gorgeous color, it's immediately comfortably, requiring very little break-in to relax. The inside is further enhanced with a kip lining, to cradle your foot at all times.

Choose 0.5 size smaller than your Brannock size.
