Edward Green Newmarket

The Chelsea boot traces its origins back to horse riding. They began as a type of riding boot also known as a paddock boot. In the 60′s they became a favorite among the Mod scene and today have endured as one of the most classic English boots.

Edward Green maker of extraordinarily fine English shoes produce the Newmarket Chelsea boot for Leffot in Burnt Pine Antique. This is a lovely medium brown tone that looks smart with just about any color it’s paired with.

The Chelsea boot was designed for its ease of slipping on and off. In addition the whole-cut forepart and elastic gussets Edward Green creates a boot that fits like a glove.

Pining for Green

Edward Green MTO’s this time the theme being Burnt Pine Antique. It’s uncanny how great minds think alike. These gentlemen placed their orders individually and yet they’re of a similar mind, are they not?

Burnt Pine Antique is a very popular and wearable color, a warm mid brown, which works extremely well with grays, blues, and browns not to mention a great pair of raw denim jeans.

Santa Came Early MTO

I was more than a little surprised when Santa Claus pulled up in front of the store today to deliver this pair of Edward Green MTO’s for Joe S. He’s a lucky man since he just had a pair of Arca’s delivered to him by Pierre Corthay earlier this month.

Joe placed this order for the Newmarket on October 28, quite good delivery on EG’s part. These are in black calf on the 888 last. A classic Chelsea boot if ever there was one.
