(Yes, I know my desk is very messy, hectic week!)

 

Special shoutout to @TtownMD for advising the whole process. Very happy with the fit and shoes. For reference, these are the 82F from Borghini Classic, and have a serial number in the 105K range. 

This is excellent news and confirms @TtownMD and @coldinboston's points. 

 

Congratulations @rbhan12!  Beautiful Galway boots!

Finally pulled the trigger on a pair of these Newmarket's. I love their appearance in pictures and thought...but upon trying them on my wife just gave me that look like "are you serious?". Still undecided on whether or not I'll hold on to them. I gave them a quick polish and applied tobacco colored saphir cream to help darken them up over time. Time will tell.

With all due respect, your wife is wrong. Love these!

I might say this about many shoes...but...really this time...My Newmarkets are my go to boots for anything less than a suit....and as a slip-on...they are awesome in airports.

I've been wearing my Newmarkets 2x/week since I got them. My wife gave me the usual good natured hard time when the box arrived --- "Another pair of shoes?" But when she saw them she said, "Oh! Those are actually different instead of just another pair. I like them."

Does Edward Green typically stock a spectator version of, say, the Malvern during the summer months? Or is there no correlation between seasons and styles in stock?

Just a plug for the service at the Jermyn Street store. I purchased three pairs of EGs last November at the factory sale in Northampton during my last visit to the UK. One of the pairs, my favorite casual shoe, the Cardiff, are E's, which are a bit too wide/loose for my D feet. I've been using slip-in insoles to take up the room. I was in London visiting relatives and stopped by the shop. Robert, one of the folks who works there, offered to have their cobbler remove the leather half footbed and glue in a fitted leather insole, as well as reglue the original leather half footbed on top. Oh, and do it overnight. At no charge.

Next day, they were awaiting pickup.

Very pleased. And a loyal customer of EG.

In light of the recent increase in posted chelsea boots and just general admiration for the beauty of Edward Green fine craftsmanship:

 

EG Burgundy Camdens again on the 82 last :)

 

 

I've mentioned before that the fit on these were really tight when I initially wore them. To provide an update, I couldn't really bear the pain and discomfort after 3+ hours of wear, so I sent these out to get them stretched a bit on the vamp and waist. After this process, the fit is ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC - probably going to be one of my favorites now!

My EG favourites, the Dover in dark oak.

Haha, I had a similar reaction from my wife when I first wore my Newmarket's, but when I last wore them she said "I like your shoes today, when did you get those?" so maybe they'll grow on her :)

 

Are those hazel antique? Looks similar to my pair
