FAQ (archive)


What size should I order?

The majority of our collection runs half a size larger than the average shoe size and one full size larger than the average sneaker. For example, if you wear a 10.5 in most shoes, we would suggest a 10D in our collection. For personal sizing suggestions, please send us an email here

How do I know if I have the best size?

You shouldn't feel “hot spots” or any uncomfortable pressure. We recommend having adequate room from the first fitting to avoid a tight fit after wearing for a few hours. The shoe should not be stretched into fitting.

Where are Grant Stone products made?

The Grant Stone journey began in Xiamen, China were our co-founder was developing GYW footwear.

For a specific recommendation, please send us an email here.

Do you offer multiple widths?

Yes. We currently sell D (average), E (wide) and EEE (extra wide) in select styles. See all of our lasts here

I use orthotics or inserts, do you have advice for me?

Most customers will go up half a size or one width to make room for an insert. The thickness and shape of the orthotic will be the main factor.

Do you sell mismatched sizes?

We only sell our footwear in matching pairs. If you have two differently sized feet, we suggest finding a size that works for your larger foot and use an insert to accommodate the smaller foot.

What is a last, and how many lasts does Grant Stone have?

A last is the wood or plastic mold that the shoe upper is built on. It determines the shape, fit, and aesthetics of the upper. See all of our lasts here

Did you design your own lasts?

We do create our own lasts. This is a process that can take years given the wear testing and revisions involved before commercializing.

I have a high instep, will Grant Stone work for me?

Due to the volume in our lasts, they can usually accommodate a higher instep. Choosing a wider width such as a E or EEE will help increase the overall volume. See more information on widths here


Is all Grant Stone footwear Goodyear-welted?

Yes. We are firm believers in the quality and the wearability of GYW.

Can leather soles be worn in wet conditions or throughout the winter?

Leather soles can be worn in wet conditions. If your Grant Stone shoes get wet, allow them to dry naturally over a day or two and use shoe trees to help lengthen the lifespan and maintain the proper shape.

Are Grant Stone insoles removable?

Our insoles are not removable. We use a Goodyear-welt construction consisting of thick leather insoles that act as a backbone of the shoe.

Will you be making other sizes or widths?

We have introduced E and EEE widths and will continue to expand the styles available in wider widths over time.

Does Grant Stone offer Shell Cordovan styles?
