Edward Green is not about following seasonal trends. Rather, it is in the business of making handsome, beautifully crafted shoes designed to last for years. The brand sees the core values of being a British shoemaker today as being fundamentally very similar to those of 50 or 100 years ago; being part of two traditions which both have deep roots.
In Northampton, Edward Green creates shoes cut by hand from the world’s finest leathers, from the same global centre of excellence where Mr Green first established his workshop in 1890. Here each pair of its shoes are made to the same principles that have guided Edward Green for over a century, while Jermyn Street is embedded in the world of St James’s and of classic English style. These traditions are deeply appreciated both at home and abroad, and while both evolve, they are revered because they are constants in an ever-changing world.
Edward Green is introducing some of its classic models (the Dover, a split-toe derby, and the Piccadilly loafer) in a handsome tumbled calf leather, London Grain, which fits well with the move to softer textures in tailoring. The Cranleigh, with its ‘Norwegian Apron’, is inspired by the classic hand-sewn Dover and is a boot designed to appeal to a market increasingly hungry for practical and casual style.
