Edward Green is regarded by many to be “the finest shoes in England for the discerning few.” A more classic English shoe would be hard to find. Having been in business for more than 120 years, Edward Green has become discreetly famous for probably the finest welted shoes.
We recently received a shipment of Edward Green made-to-order shoes, and they’re as beautiful and elegant as ever. We present them here for your viewing pleasure.

Every Tuesday we release new shoes on Leffot Pre-owned, our marketplace for gently-worn, high-quality footwear. Today we’re featuring a few pairs in black calfskin, which we find isn’t as hard to wear as you might think it is.
Edward Green’s Pimlico is a sharp penny loafer with handsewing along the vamp. They pair excellently with a suit, and even with jeans for a smart causal look.
Edward Green’s Chelsea is perhaps the classic cap toe oxford. It does not get any more traditional than when it’s done in black calfskin. Wear with a charcoal suit or even a tux and you’ll have the sharpest shoes in the room.
Of course it’s possible to wear black casually. Pair these Church’s monkstraps with a pair of dark jeans and a crisp shirt for a clean look.
The Chelsea is Edward Green’s most classic shoe, a cap toe balmoral made with an elegant silhouette and subtle detailing. This pair is made on slim rubber soles that are sleek, comfortable, and lightweight. Combined with their most versatile and rich leather, dark oak calfskin, you have one of the most beautiful and useful shoes you can find.
These travel shoes are so lightweight and comfortable that you might forget you’re wearing them. Since they’re suede, they’re extremely soft and will form to the shape of your foot. Put them on, kick back, and enjoy your flight in style.
Features: 389 last, Navy Baby Calf Suede, Cemented Leather Soles
In celebration of our ninth anniversary, we’ve made two limited edition Edward Greens from the very last of their mahogany pin grain calfskin. Both have are lined in green calfskin — the signature color also used on their boxes.
The first pair is one of our favorite shoes, the Dover. Handsewn with a pig’s bristle, it’s an elegant shoe that’s easy to dress up or down. We’ve done them on the 606 last with double leather soles. Only twelve pair available.
The second pair is Edward Green’s classic captoe balmoral, also known as the Chelsea. You don’t usually see this shoe on the 606 last, but we like its chiseled look paired with the pin-grained mahogany calfskin. Made on single leather shoes, we’ve limited the run to only six pairs.
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.
