Big 3 are the galway, dover, and chelsea. We discussed this way back and really these 3 can cover you in any situation.

I don't see how there is big 3 and not big 4... Why you guys leaving the Shanklin out? 

 

I mean, you need a Shanklin too!

I guess Galway can replace Shanklin.

Good point, the Shanklin certainly is a great addition as well.

These ranking exercises are rather silly. Far too subjective.

Choose an oxford, derby, boot, casual, formal shoe, and whatever else pleases you. Some will have no need for items in particular categories, others will load up almost exclusively on items like Galways.

Part of what makes Edward Green so awesome is their range and archive of shoes and styles are so broad. Something for everyone! You can find the most conservative oxford in black on the 202 last, or go for broke with a brown alligator and white suede spectator on the new 890 last. The world is your oyster fellows...

Totally agree with Smoothie on this one. Although I love the lists of "must haves" everyone has a different need for their shoe rotation. Luckily I have some of those listed above lol

Agreed they really are strictly for fun and I would hope most people see it that way as well. Taste is subjective.
post #25915 of 28954

Subjective and silly for sure.  But, so much fun.  Interestingly though, there seemed to be some sort of consensus on 1, 2, and 3 in  @cezinho's orginal list.

How anyone can say the Galway, Shannon or Dover is a "must have" is beyond me. The epitome of EG, yes, but "must have"...dozingoff.gif

Dover (oak), Chelsea (black), Westminter (burnt pine) , Inverness (black) and Berkeley (burgundy).  Then, the Galway...:hide:

post #25918 of 28954

As others have mentioned....Dépends on what you're doing with them...I wouldn't see any reason to have 2 Dovers in my top 5...I would personally replace one with say a double monk in burgundy...The Chelsea is a classic cap-toe oxford/bal...I got mine for a very nice price, but I'd hardly say that EG does them the best,  although they are excellent overall, if I could only take 5 EGs I might go elsewhere...if you mean a shoe rotation of 5...then I'd probably go with the black Chelsea (mine are on the 202 however).....I have yet to get a Galway, but I find my Newmarkets are quite nice as to versatility and overall enjoyment...going back to "needs and uses"...if you're more on the business end a pair of Doak chelseas would probably make the list.... I would also take an Inverness in Burgundy..But anyways...back to the question

 

Inverness in burgundy

Chelsea in Black

Newmarkets in dark burnt pine/doak....

Shannon in burgundy/doak

Westminster in burgundy

 

I find burgundy a bit more versatile than Doak/other browns in the use wih both navy and greys/charcoal. It's a bit less formal...but that's what the black chelseas are for anyways. I might go Galway over the Newmarkets...but I have to say that it's hard to imagine a boot more versatile than my Newmarkets...Anything from jeans on up to less formal suits....If you only had 5....the Newmarket would seem a bit easier to work into the roation...but again...I have no experience with Galway & have yet to personally experience the fandome of the model.-

I see no reason to draw any lines especially if it means less EG shoes or boots. LOL

Doak Dover 606 last
