Edward Green Trunk Show

We cordially invite you to join us this Friday, November 30th from 11AM–7PM for our trunk show with Edward Green.

Edward Green is regarded by many to be “The finest shoes in all of England for the discerning few.” A more classic English shoe would be hard to find.

Having been in business for more than 120 years Edward Green has become discreetly famous for the finest welted shoes.

Our EG shows are tremendously popular. We present the largest selection of samples assembled at any Edward Green show in North America. You will have your choice of models, lasts, leathers, colors, and soles for your made to order pair.

This is the time to design your shoes for spring.  If you love classic shoes and frankly who doesn’t, you can’t afford to miss this event.

Edward Green Farringdon

Edward Green’s Farringdon is a simple shoe. Made in a casual, but highly elegant blucher style with a sleek, plain toe, these can be worn with just about anything. Rich Dark Oak calfskin makes these shoes both dynamic and extremely wearable. Its a shoe that is both versatile and personal.

Before and After

A while back I posted pictures of two Edward Green Shannon’s, one men’s and one of the new ladies collection. Both were in the try on stage so the soles were not yet attached and in the case of the men’s brown boot the color was not yet finished.

Both pair came out looking fantastic. The men’s are very masculine in Dark Oak on the double leather soles. The woman’s are great looking with the punching around the foot and the V stitching down the front of the shaft.

Incidentally this is the first pair of ladies shoes produced and delivered to the U.S. by Edward Green. I’m quite certain my wife will enjoy them…
