"Cut by hand from the world’s finest leathers, each pair of Edward Greens is made according to the same principles for over a century"
Edward Green is perhaps the quintessential ready to wear English shoe above all others, and no wonder, considering the brand has had since 1890 to perfect its craft. Edward Green shoes are all expertly made in Northampton, using the finest leathers and beautiful lasts that convey a sense of English elegance.
Edward Green was a man with a singular passion for shoes.
Starting in the industry as a twelve-year-old apprentice, Edward was driven by an ambition to make a better class of shoe. He established his own workshop in Northampton in 1890, gathering around him the town’s most illustrious craftsmen, each an expert in their respective field, and sourced the best materials for them to work with.
“Excellence without compromise,” was his promise and soon his name became associated with the finest English Goodyear Welted footwear, gracing style icons from Ernest Hemingway to Edward, the Duke of Windsor.
They continue to strive to make the best shoes possible, refining and improving where appropriate, but always taking our time to ensure that each pair of shoes is fit to bear our founder’s name and dress another generation of men who appreciate the difference.
