Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1769

post #26521 of 29009
The R1 (rubber sole) is another great option, wears less fast than leather in my experience. I had seen that E.G. offered a black Chelsea (82 last) on the R1 sole the Edward Green webshop. I personally would rather have a couple of foul weather shoes on OEM rubber then go the toppy route. I currently have a Galway on Dainite double and a Shanklin on R1 for those purposes, the rest of my collection is on leather soles.

topy I would never do. Rather chose for Dainite or R1 rubber soles when you resole.

Each to their own, they've always worked well for me, otherwise I would be resoleing completely far too often with the amount of walking and the conditions in which I need to walk . Leather soles with a well fitted coversole look better than the rubber sole options on more elegant shoes IMO (Galways etc are best on a Danite etc sole anyway) and I get much more life out of my shoes this way.

The cobbler suggested it and I thought I might try it out this time. I don't see a huge disadvantage to them over leather soles that have the heck chewed out of them....and let's keep in mind that not all of us order m to & Bespoke. For us last pair and end of season shoppers it's take what you can get. Lol. Again. If I was driving everywhere or walking the flatlands, and all the walks were concrete... and the soles remained decent looking,I'd agree with your point. But this time around I figured there was no harm in trying it out. If I don't like it it can always be changed back. How often are people looking at the bottom of the shoe anyways? I myself usually stare at the toe box. Lol

More often than I originally thought, e.g. when you cross your legs or when you are sitting, leaning back with your feet on the tables

Those are beautiful Shannon's! That color almost reminds me of GG's Vintage Rioja. Excellent choice!

It's difficult to find anyone who stocks Shannon's in my size unfortunately...Were yours MTO?

I have a few that i placed with steve at GF in dec-early jan, and they just shipped on monday. A couple more are expectrd in may so 4mos +/-month is about right. About 6 mos was the quoted time for TD

Ahh, okay. Well then that's not terrible. I only have 1 with Steve and the other I went rogue.

Incidentally i also placed a StC order at the same time which also just came in so it looks like waiting time is about the same for EG and StC (EG getting better than before and StC getting longer).
At least in my little experiment
