A few months ago, I recieved a pair of Edward Green Dovers in olive (or as I like to call them "My green Greens"). Here are some pictures:

Sorry, I suppose I should have provided more commentary.

I received the shoes in March, and took pictures immediately. Only today did I get around to posting pictures.

I have worn them around the house and to the supermarket, but they are not fully broken in yet. I plan to wear them to the office, and will go with a navy suit and a moss green tie. I will also wear them with a tan summer suit and an olive colored suit in the autumn. I think they will go great with dark jeans.

I did not request that the shoes be antiqued, so they are very very green. At first I was a bit disappointed by this. When I placed the order, I had imagined that when I stood, the casual observer would see only an inky black toe. When I sat down and my trousers rode up a bit, the careful observer would note that the shoes gradually lighten into an olive as the eye traveled up to the laces. I may use some black cream and polish on these, or just let them develop the patina they desire.

A recent poll asked about toe taps. I always ask for them. Unfortuntately, with my green Greens, I did not specify that i wanted the taps to be sunk into the leather and flush with the front of the toe. Thus, this pair has the taps sitting on the surface of the sole.

Love them Bic! Your olive is defintely greener than mine, but I think I like both equally. The Dover was an excellent choice too.

I never saw green shoes before. They must be perfect for a walk in the grass.

What a cool color. And a nice looking shoe as well. Bob

Those are beautiful. The split-toe derby is such a nice design for that color, too. I commend both your taste and your courage. (Courage because I gather it was a special order, and you could only guess at what the result would be.)

For purposes of comparison here are my olive EGs. Cardiffs with Southwold toecaps on the 888 last.
