Anyone have any experience with Ed Et Al shoes from Singapore?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just stumbled on the site yesterday. edetal.sg



The RTW looks pretty good at the $200 price point. I'm thinking about giving them a try - I can use the shoes as beaters at the very least. On the other hand I could put that money to a better pair of shoes. I've included a couple of pics.

If you own a pair let me know where they fit on the quality spectrum and how they are wearing.

I own a pair of Ed's shoes (custom grade) and think they are absolutely fantastic value for $$. The RTW range clearly isn't meant to be Vass killers, but the quality is excellent given Ed's pricepoints. Leather quality isn't far off from my C&J benchgrades, and the stitches are very neatly done too. I'm pretty sure Ed also hand finishes his shoes, even the RTW stuff.. He also did a fantastic job recrafting an old pair of shoes with a closed channel stitch.

Saw a few pairs of Springline lasts at the launch party 2 weeks back, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished bespoke products!

Come summer, he's going to take all my hard earned $$ frown.gif

Their RTW line fits seem to run quite slim, not recommended for slightly wide feet.

No experience with them. I've seen Sifr, which has some attractive Indonesian-made chukkas w/ (I believe) a goodyear welt, though I thought they were a bit pricey.

I echo what gshen said having owned Ed's shoes as well as a pair of CJ bench grade. I haven't worn the Ed shoes I have yet, but they look great for the price. I am already looking forward to the next collection which will have shoes with sleeker lasts as well as more casual shoes.

Just a quick note that our shoes are now open for International orders!

And of course, thanks to the guys who has reviewed our products!

Missileblitz, do you own a pair?  I'm a US. 11E. And am looking at Ed's size 45...the measurements imply US E width, but I'm concerned based on your comment.  They've offered a 46, perhaps based on feedback from this forum, but I worry about length in that case.  Any advice?

The new styles are great. Major props to you guys for carving out a nice niche with your product. Totally wished our store had jumped on these before!

Does anyone have experience with the new shoes in the "Third collection 2012"?

The Shoesnob gave them a very good review here http://www.theshoesnobblog.com/2012/11/ed-et-al-remastered.html and judging by picture it looks like a big improvement, but would like to see one in person or hear what you think. They are not shown on the main shop page of ed's website but they are in the lookbook, so I assume they are already available.

Would also like to know what leather they use now. The Asian sourced leather used previously looked cheap.

Keen to get my hands on these monks


or the blind brogues

The Shoe Snob's update got my hopes up. E&A would raise its points greatly if they'd go with Rendenbach calf and the likes, just like Meermin has done.

Just heard back from Ed's team. Third Collection is in stock in store, but many sizes are already sold out. Replenishment expected before Xmas.

And they claim they use French and Italian calf for the Third Collection, but didn't specify the tannery.

Visited them this weekend to try out sizes. I'm normally a UK 8.5E and fit well in their size 42.

Seams and finishing looks OK, but there are visible stains in the leather and the buckles. They confirmed European leather but couldn't say tannery.

For anyone ordering remotely, the brown shoes are a lot less reddish than in the look book.

Attach some pictures of the shoes that you can be the judge of. ynemedy6.jpgguzenutu.jpgu8a9a2un.jpgyrumuher.jpgatejepah.jpga4a5edeq.jpg

They look great. Are there any good pictures available of their balmoral boots?
