In Northampton the home of England’s finest shoemakers they refer to shell cordovan as Crup. In our opinion Burgundy or Color 8 as we say in the States is one of the most beautiful colors. A deep crimson hue, which should be in every mans wardrobe. And like all shell cordovan colors the color varies as seen in the images below.
People are often surprised to hear that Edward Green makes shoes in Crup and in fact they make incredibly nice shoes in it. That is to say the leather is very clean with very little product on it and the shells are very clear meaning no imperfections. The result is obvious, a pair of shoes that looks and feels like a million buck or should we say pounds.
Here are a few examples of recent Edward Green MTO’s in Burgundy Crup. MTO is Made To Order these shoes are not in stock.

The Edward Green Galway is a classic English country boot, a gentleman’s boot if you will. The beauty of these is the versatility dressy enough to wear with a suit on damp days or as a smart casual boot.
Boots don’t have to be rugged to get the job done but they do need to be well made and Edward Green makes them as good as they get.
Now in stock in E width.

We’re very excited about this new monk strap shoe by Edward Green the Arlington has an air of stateliness about it. In particular we love the large holes and the size of the buckle. This is a shoe that pairs well with a flannel chalk stripe suit, slacks and a blazer or jeans.

When our friend Junji paid a visit from Tokyo recently I was struck at once by his shoes. I’ve been captivated by the Edward Green Wigmore for some time now. His pair were well worn and well loved.
The thing about shoes is that they look best worn in. The creases and scuffs are a testament to the fondness we have for them. As for the Wigmore I’m sure they’ll eventually find a spot on our table they’re one righteous pair of shoes. And as for Junji all I can say is, I like your style dude.

The Edward Green Asquith is one of those iconic EG styles. A classic English cap-toe if every there was one. I love the gimping and the 2:1 hole punches something about it just makes me sentimental.
