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.

Alden NST All-Weather Walker

As we gear up for winter we thought it a good time to add a new Alden All-Weather Walker. This time we chose the Norwegian Split Toe which features Alden’s famous handsewn apron, in brown calf.

The exceptional insulating quality of genuine plantation crepe makes it an ideal outsole for winter wear, with reinforced leather tips for added durability.
