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.

Asquith & Ecton

A is for Asquith, E is for Ecton and now these two Edward Green classics are available at Leffot. Both models are part of the EG Core Collection. The real beauty of an Edward Green shoe is it’s timeless design and superb handcrafted quality. If you already wear them you’ll know what I mean, if you don’t I encourage to treat yourself.

Edward Green will celebrate their 120th anniversary in 2010, and to celebrate they will be offering a selection of Limited Edition models, more on that very soon.
