Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 83

I've managed to get some stains on my EG Malvern spectators, no idea what caused them. How does one go about cleaning canvas, or should I forget the idea and call the stains patina?

Depends on the severity. But you are right, patina is stain.

This is exactly why I'd never get a pair of shoes with canvas. A good cleaning solution should do the trick, but I'd just be worried about smudges each time I polish the calf bits.

I don't have canvas spectators, but for white canvas plimsolls, I spray them with a 50/50 mix of water and lemon juice and gently scrubbed them for a bit with a stiff toothbrush. Once they're dry, they're a bit brighter. For tougher stains, I mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a touch of water and rub the sticky paste onto the stain (again, with a toothbrush). Let the paste sit for a bit, then brush it off, and usually a bit more of the stain will go away.

I'm hesitant to really recommend this with your Malverns, however. It might be good to try it out on a cheap pair of white plimsolls, or some canvas shoe you don't care about, and see how they fare. After that, try it on an inconspicuous place on the Malverns. I do it without hesitation to my canvas shoes because they only cost something like $50.

My wife uses the baking powder mixture for coffee stains on carpet and it works quite well. Not sure how that translates to shoes though.

Thanks for the tips, gents. I can live with the stains, though. Not too large or colourful to mess this great makeup. The last 202 does have a surprisingly strong heel shape.

For oily/fatty stains on suede shoes, I use "Terre de Sommieres" (http://www.avel.com/product-details-terre-de-sommieres-avel,219), recommended on the French forum depiedencap (http://depiedencap.leforum.eu/t9211-FAQ-l-entretien-de-nos-souliers.htm, see the 6th video on the page). It works pretty well, and in theory it should work on canvas too, but as said above, it is probably better to try it on cheap shoes/canvas first.

Just back from Barcelona.

The price is 700 and something (730 for the model I looked at; obviously, exact price depends on the model) euros.

The shoes are stampled with "Edward Green for Bel y Cia" -- I guess some models are availale only there. And yes, they are in F width, as opposed to standard E.

Any suggestions as to which color wax/cream should I use for bronze antique EG?

Also looking for suggestions on the above.

My shoe size is US 10.5 EE, and tried an EG Inverness UK 10.5 E, it was extremely tight. I don't think the UK 11E will work, the tightness and lacing gap would indicate as much. The best guess would be to go for a UK 11.5 E, and that would be unacceptable for me length wise. I am thinking an UK 11 F would fit the bill, so i might have to end up ordering this from Nick A.

On a side note, the brilliant antique burgundy in all the pics i have seen did not translate in the pair i saw. It was more brown that anything, anyone else experience this?

Lastly, how does the 202 last compare to the 888 last? does it feel like an F width in comparison? Thanks, for the help.

The 202 is roomier than the 888, and significantly wider in the forefoot.

Enough to size up/down a width fitting between the two?

Sorry for being purposefully vague. It depends on your foot shape. I often size up or down depending on last but I have a narrow heel and a wide forefoot. On the 888 I wear 8.5/9F and a 8.5/9E on the 202 if that helps.

No difference between the two for me.

202 is a tad wider than 888, has a higher instep and is also a shorter last than 888. It's hard to comment on whether sizing down would work. Best to try some sizes on to be more certain.
