We recently received a shipment of Edward Green’s Halifax, which is the boot version of their classic handsewn Dover. It’s a comfortable boot that you can wear both casually and with a suit. We’ve made it in Edward Green’s new Delapre leather, which is soft and only gets better with age.
We also received a restock of the Claverton, which is a simple galosh, more commonly known as a balmoral. The distinctive punching on the toe makes it an elegant dress shoe that goes well with grey and navy suits. It’s a shoe with classic style that won’t be pigeon-holed.
Our trunk show with Edward Green is tomorrow from 11 to 7. Stop by anytime to meet Robert Godley and design a pair of your own EGs.
Keeping your shoes stored properly not only saves space but also ensures your shoes will stay looking their best. There’s a very simple technique to keeping your shoes boxed properly, which we’ll demonstrate here. It might sound ridiculous but people get this wrong all the time.
For this demonstration we chose a pair of Edward Green Claverton’s in Dark Oak. Not all manufacturers use the same materials inside the box but the same steps apply for any pair. Edward Green happens to package their shoes very nicely. They use excellent packing materials and make a very good solid box.
The key is to lay the shoes in opposite directions, the first shoe with the arch facing down and the second facing up; that’s the way the boxes are designed to fit the shoes.
Lay open the covering.
Left shoe with arch facing down.
Cover the shoe.
Add protective padding if applicable.
Lay right shoe in the opposite direction with arch up
Lay Dust Bags on top.

And close the lid.
Of course not all shoes have cloth coverings and padding but almost all shoes have paper to layer between the shoes. Shoe trees can be kept in the shoes as well and if you don’t have cloth or paper to lay between the shoes keep them in the dust bags but lay them in the box the same way. It’s that simple….
We’ve just received three new Edward Green models, of which two are new designs and one which is new to Leffot. The two new designs are theClaverton on the 82 last in Dark Oak and the Midfordalso on the 82 last in Black Calf.
I really like the sleeker lines of the 82 last on these two models. It has a much more stylish feel than the 202, it’s very elegant but also perfect for office wear.
The third style is the Ringwoodin Edwardian Antique on the 888 last. This butterfly gusset shoe with medallion toe has a very continental boot look to it. It’s a great looking shoe especially with casual slacks such as cords, flannels or jeans.
