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.

Edward Green MTO

Last week we had the pleasure of visiting the Edward Green factory in Northampton, England. What you realize as you watch and talk with the men and women that make the shoes is that shoes are only as good as the people who make them.

To make great shoes you need great people. These are highly skilled and talented craftsmen that take tremendous pride in what they do and it shows.

Thank you Hilary Freeman and the staff at Edward Green for your unwavering dedication to quality and tradition it is truly inspiring.
