Cut by hand from the world’s finest leathers, each pair of Edward Greens is made in their Northampton workshop according to the same principles that have guided the company for over a century.
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 fields, 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.
The company is still based in Northampton and has over sixty skilled artisans making around 350 pairs of shoes a week, many for export to the world's leading boutiques and department stores as well as our their shops in London and Paris.
Edward Green continues to strive to make the best shoes possible, refining and improving where appropriate, but always taking time to ensure that each pair of shoes is fit to bear the founder’s name and dress another generation of men who appreciate the difference.
