Edward Green Ullswater, Navy Crup

The Edward Green Ullswater is one of the styles in EG’s Lake collection. The name is derived from Lake Ullswater, which many describe as the most beautiful of the English lakes. The heavy country brogue design of this shoe is meant for country terrain.

Even though we’re city folks we commissioned EG to make the Ullswater in Horween navy crup (shell cordovan) for two reasons. We love the combination of brogue wingtips in crup and we love the way EG works with the material.

They make as clean a shell shoe as you will find. Couple that with the incredible EG fit and comfort and you have a shoe that will wear for a good 20 years.

Viberg Service Boot

Viberg’s Service Boot takes the strengths of Horween Shell Cordovan leather and puts them to excellent use. As a durable and beautiful leather, the material can work as well in a work-boot context as it can in a formal context. This captoe boot is both, a boot that will stand up to serious treatment while still looking really fantastic.
