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, or (to be more precise), like a sock. This boot is perfectly urban and versatile, wearing well with just about anything.

Features: 82 Last, Snuff Suede, Single Leather Soles

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Hiro Yanagimachi. He will be taking orders for made-to-order and made-to-measure. A variety of samples will be on hand, as well as fitting shoes so you can determine your size.

Hiro offers a line with machine-stitched soles, as well as a fully handmade line. You’ll be able to create a shoe from over 45 models and 50 leathers. Fit and pattern modifications are also available. For more information about his offerings, as well as pricing, see this post on his website.

Since 1999, Hiro has been making hand-welted bespoke shoes in the English tradition. Trained at the London Cordwainers College, he learned the techniques and culture of bespoke shoemaking at places such as John Lobb. In 2012 he began offering a made-to-order line, and until recently has focused on making shoes for local customers in Japan.

The Edward Green Westminster is one of our favorite shoes, and it couldn’t look better than it does here as an MTO in American alligator. The matte skin is understated and elegant, which might sound like a funny thing to say about Gator, but in this case it couldn’t be more true. These are shoes for the discerning few, and we present them here for your viewing pleasure.

Features: Westminster, Mocca Alligator Matte, Double Leather Soles

Quoddy Penny Moc, Brown CXL

Spring is here, and that means moccasins. The Quoddy Penny Moc features a Vibram rubber sole handsewn to the upper over a layer of cushioning for that classic moccasin profile and feel, but with all the advantages of Vibram grip and durability. They’re an excellent addition to the Boat Mocs or Bluchers you may already own. Comfortable, easy, classic — everything you except from a pair of Quoddys. They’re available in three colors: black, brown, and natural.

We recommend sizing down a half size on the Penny Moc.

Features: Black, Brown, or Natural Chromexcel; Vibram Wrap Soles
