Edward Green Shoes
Anyone who has dealt with exclusive frame-stitched men's shoes will not have passed the name Edward Green.
Each pair of Edward Green shoes is made exclusively by hand in Northampton, UK. This is a process that has largely remained unchanged since the company was founded in 1890.
In the production process, only the finest materials are used, which are purchased from renowned suppliers without any compromises.
The high level of craftsmanship not only ensures a luxurious feeling, but also guarantees the highest wearing comfort, which can hardly be achieved by a different shoe bought off the rack. One of the reasons for this can mainly be found in the soles, which are made of oak bark, which has been "burned" for nine months and because of its nature imparts an incomparable comfort and durability!
Edward Green rigorously follows the credo that the quality of a shoe begins with the quality of its components. Only the finest French and Italian calf are used, which is subsequently subjected to a handcrafted finish; always depending on the leather types. The handcrafted finish gives each shoe its individual touch.
For over 120 years, a pair of frame-stitched shoes by Edward Green symbolizes British understatement and perfect craftsmanship - whether it's the classic Derby or Oxford, or a Penny Loafer, a Chelsea boat or a pair of boots!
Michael Jondral's comment on Edward Green: "With the tradition in its background, an Edward Green shoe is the best combination of tradition, workmanship, quality and value. An investment in shoes that will make you happy for years to come! "
Discover the traditional craftsmanship that is at the top of the world. With these shoes, tradition and modernity are combined in a hand-crafted, frame-stitched shoe.
