Edward Green At Pitti Uomo 87

Edward Green

 

Another stop that I always make is the Edward Green stand and this time I saw something very interesting stuff, including this boot above, which I believe was a design of theirs from the early 1900’s that they are reinventing! Among others was the addition of some nice green semi brogues and some lovely spectator two tones in blue. It was nice to see EG branching out a bit, quite contrary to the comments that I had written in my previous post about them. Guess that I should have waited to see their Pitti stand!! Oh well, at least they are going for it and that is all that matters. Well done EG, keep it up!

And for those of you who happen to read this blog and have a shoe line of your own, no matter where it is, be warned that Edward Green have a patent for this boot above so copying it by any means would be an unwise decision. Just saying….

    Not a huge fan of the aesthetics of that line up, in particular the Adelaide semi-brogues. The sole/welt does not look like it has been trimmed tightly enough to the line of the upper and spoils the line of the chisel toe. Noticeable on the round toed model at the bottom also.

    I’m a huge fan of EG and applaud the adventurous spirit that those boots exemplify. But I can’t say I have a lot of love for the boots themselves. It is perhaps fitting that the design draws inspiration from the early 1900s as the lacing very much reminds me of that which would be found on a lady’s corset of the time.
