Edward Green Ullswater, Almond CC

If there’s one type of shoe that is typically English it has to be the Country shoe. Edward Green has released the Ullswater a full brogue derby ideal for rugged terrain in the field or the city.

We designed these on the classic 202 last in Almond Country Calf, Dainite soles with extended fudge welts. It’s a big boy shoe that will serve one well for many a years to come.

Edward Green Dover

The Dover is without doubt the quintessential Edward Green shoe. Tales of its handsewn apron and reverse split toe are legendary and rightfully so. Each is sewn by expert craftsmen who use pigs bristles rather than metal needles.

The preparation of the thread itself is a major undertaking combining several long strands and bonding them with wax then splitting the end of the bristle and lashing the thread to it.

So much of what goes into finely crafted shoes is taken for granted. It’s difficult to appreciate the level of skill, time and artisan-ship it takes to produce a pair if you haven’t seen it first hand. It’s remarkable really that in today’s high tech, automated world there are products which are still made by way of tradition. Something’s are best left unchanged.

Here are several Dover’s, that we recently received for clients. All of which were made to order.
