Question regarding edward green shoes - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Marc: Without a doubt do the antiqued leather. This is what EGs are all about. They are to die for. Bye the Bye.. EGs tend to squeak when you walk because of the oak shank rubing against the inner sole. I notice this mostly with my Galway boots. The nature of the beast.

Never had this problem with my EGs, I've had it once in my Paraboots which was subsequently repaired.

Frankly, I can't imagine making anything other than cowboy boots out of it.
I saw a great looking stingray wallet once. As for Aubercy, I've got a pair of monk-straps I'll be listing soon. Standard brown suede monkstrap, nothing special. The characteristic dimpling of a hand welted shoe is not present on the insole so it seems that the pair I have were not handmade. I've only seen the one pair though, and don't want to judge the whole line from them.

Bengal-Stripe, my wife thinks you are making me into a bit of a snob.
"I break my clogs", isn't that what you Dutch say when you're amazed or gobsmacked? How can I turn someone into "a bit of a snob", who has his shoes, shirts and whatnots all made to measure? I have to get my one and only Lattanzi pair from eBay (about EURO 70 or 80). But maybe you order bespoke shoes, because as a child you were so poor and had to go barefoot to school?

Owning bespoke/custom items does not make one into a snob . Most of my childhood friends think I am the same person as before. My wife made the comment since I bemoaned the fact that (after learning from you and others why my Tod's got wet inside) my Tod's were "Blake" and that I would not buy such shoes again when b.s.f (before style forum) I just went and bought what I liked.

Nope, I buy bespoke shoes because (amongst other reasons): - they fit me better (I've got sunken arches and different foot sizes) - some of the styles I liked were not available as RTW - some of the styles I liked that were available as RTW did not fit my foot. But why the comment?

If I'm correct, BS was trying to account for your love of shoes, rather than attempting to slight you. In any case, I'm certain that you're the best shod bacteriophage admirer in the world. (And possibly one of the few who doesn't wear socks with sandals.)

T4phage I always thought it were the Germans (like me) who are not supposed to have a sense of humor.

OIC. Maybe because I had a pretty tough start to the week. As MPS likes saying, my "phages" did not function properly messing up a whole months work
