Edward green in seattle?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Although I am originally from Seattle, I wasn't in a position to buy Edward Green shoes while growing up... I'll be there on business in mid-July. Can anyone recommend a place to buy E. Green shoes in the area? Even full retail in Seattle should beat the prices in Tokyo. Bic

Unfortunately the closest place I know of for sure is in the SF Bay Area. You could try Mario's,

I thought that Butch Blum might carry EGs,but I called them this afternoon,and was told that they don't. I suppose I'll have to head downtown to do some recon. Will check out Mario's and Nordstrom,and report back soon.

Thanks a lot Mitch D. You are a prince. I remember when the new Nordstorm openned downtown (1996?) and their shoe selection was trumpted....but I was a mere babe in the shoe woods back then and wouldn't have known an Edward Green from a Florsheim. Bic

When I asked EG about their retailers in the U.S., they did not list any stores north of California in the western half of the country.

Well,I stopped by Nordstrom,Mario's,and Barney's New York this afternoon (I know: Tough job,but someone has to do it ) ,and none carries Edward Green. Mario's did have some nice shoes by Gravati,Sutor Mantellassi,and J.M. Weston though.

Thanks very much for going to the trouble, Mich D. I suppose the Shoe God are trying to tell me something. Pay Japanese retail....not. Bic

You are very welcome,Bic..  Happy to help,if I can. Mitch P.S. Perhaps you could order a catalog from EG directly. This thread,from Andy's site,discusses just that:

Nordstrom has EG shoes? Jon.

Bic- an Alaska Airlines or SW flight from Seattle to SF is pretty cheap. I'm guessing $150 or so round trip if you buy them now...It might be worth your while to visit Malouf's... Nordstrom here in SF carries handmade Santonis. A Harris and I have been admiring them from afar because of the stratospheric price tag... I picked up a pair of RLPL EG loafers at a Rack here a month or so ago, too. As they don't quite fit, you'll see them on E-Bay soon...

Steve, So what is the price of the handmade Santoni's? It sure sounds like the SF Nordstrom is better than the ones in the Midwest. And I have never seen EG's at the rack. You are a lucky man. -Andy

Steve B., What is the size of the EG's?

Andrew; $1495, and they are really great-looking shoes, although the color's a bit red for my taste. The Nordstroms here in the Bay Area carry really good stuff- especially downtown SF. They also have Isaia, and do trunk shows. I did consider myself quite lucky on the loafer find- thanks. John: 10/10.5E, RLPL model 28986 model, burnt pine. Slip stitched split toe- they're really nice, wish they fit me.

Thanks Steve B. I wear a 7/7.5. Do you think I could stuff some newspaper in the toes and add tongue pads to take up the extra 4 inches of space?
