Edward Green Chelsea, Mink Suede

There are some men who say there isn’t anything that doesn’t look great with a pair of brown suede shoes. We wouldn’t couldn’t agree more. Mink suede is lush in texture and vibrant in color, but subtle enough to pair with just about any hue.

On the Chelsea model, a classic, equally versatile cap toe balmoral, this shoe is just about as good as it gets when it comes to wearability and comfort. Made with the masterful craftsmanship of Edward Green, these will compliment your clothing for years to come.

Edward Green Camden

Fall is upon us, and that means it’s time to break out the boots. We’ve just started receiving our fall shipments, and among them was this gem from Edward Green, the Camden. It’s a short chelsea boot that we’ve made in mink suede, and is perhaps the ultimate casual boot. They’re easy to slip on, and pair perfectly with jeans. And like so many other suede shoes, they’re incredibly comfortable.
