Edward Green Shanklin and Ryde

Unlined shoes make summer’s heat just a little more bearable. Two new unlined models from Edward Green arrived this week, just as the weather’s starting to heat up.

The Shanklin is a chukka boot built for ease and comfort. Available in Indigo or Mushroom suede, they can be worn in a number of different situations and still look appropriate.

The Ryde is a three-eyelet derby that’s also supremely comfortable. Made in versatile Tobacco suede, they look great with fresco trousers, chinos, or white denim.

Both shoes are made on Edward Green’s R1 sole, which is a slim rubber sole that’s lightweight and unobtrusive. Because these shoes are made by Edward Green, you get the comfort and casual style of unlined suede in addition to the classic silhouettes and supreme quality for which EG is known.

Alden Boots: Natural CXL Captoe and Snuff Suede Shortwing

These natural chromexcel captoe boots are an ideal casual boot. The combination of the flex soles and the natural CXL means they’ll be comfortable and ready to go right out of the box. They’ll pair wonderfully with khakis or jeans.

The shortwing boot is the Greenwich boot’s first cousin. Instead of the rounded toe box of the Barrie last, these boots are made on the square-toed Plaza. We’ve done them in soft snuff suede and comfortable flex soles.

John Lobb Lopez and Edward

You can’t get any more classic than the Lopez loafer. Simply put, this shoe is an icon. Created in 1950, it is a simple and elegant shoe that’s been done up in Lobb’s beautiful dark brown suede. If you’re looking for something classic and unique, this is it.

The Edward is a slip-on made in Lobb’s beautiful black oxford calfskin. The outer skin and inner lining are cut from a single piece of leather that makes for a simple and elegant shoe that pairs well with anything from jeans to a sportcoat.
