Edward Green Dover, Tobacco Suede

The Dover is Edward Green’s signature shoe — a blucher with a hand-sewn vamp. The hand-sewing process is so delicate that a pig’s bristle must be used to sew rather than a needle. We’ve made these Dovers in Edward Green’s Tobacco Suede on rubber soles so they’ll be perfect for laid-back summer wear. This shoe is one for the ages: comfortable, useful, and very unique.

Edward Green Hove, Coffee Suede

Classic doesn’t always mean predictable. Edward Green’s Hove is an ornate monk strap masterpiece coupled with Coffee suede. Wear these with anything from jeans to a suit and you’ll be turning heads all over town.

Edward Green Cardiff, Navy Suede

Contrary to popular opinion, quality suede is one of the most versatile and comfortable shoe leathers you can invest in. We’ve paired Edward Green’s classic captoe Cardiff blucher with fine-grained Navy Suede and slim rubber soles. They go great with just about any color or texture. We’d wear them with a rumpled linen suit for a comfortable, elegant summer look.

Corthay Fantomas, Flint Suede

What can be said about the Fantomas? Take a ghillie, make it in patinated flint suede, add single leather soles, work in some purple laces, and you have this very pair by the master himself, Pierre Corthay. An everyday shoe? Hardly. But that won’t get in your way.

How to clean suede

Suede isn’t as delicate as you may have heard. In fact it’s quite resilient and easy to clean. We recommend Saphir’s Omni’nettoyant, which works like a shampoo for suede, working into a lather and cleaning deep into the nap. It’s strong enough to clean thoroughly but gentle enough not to damage the leather. It’s important to care for your shoes, and suede is no exception.
