Dear friends, as you may have noticed we have been quite restrictive with Edward Green orders for some time now – and it is now a fact that we will start to phase out Edward Green. Although I really appreciate the Edward Green aesthetics and the history the company has, it has become clear that we cannot continue to work with them. This decision was based on our core values and our company philosophy.

Edward Green has promised us to honor any previously placed order (MTOs, pre-orders and such) and of course we will hold them to this pledge.

Kind regards,
Patrik a.k.a Leaves – founder and owner of Skoaktiebolaget


I applaud Skoak for putting their customers ahead of their marquis makers.  Skoak is attentive and responsive to their customers, and they clearly demand the same from their makers.

Looks like we'll have to get some burn phones, @rydenfan .

Amen

Definitely saw the EG thing coming and I'm glad Skoak stuck to their guns.  Seems like EG has been late on many deliveries this past year and has really, to me at least, priced themselves out of being too competitive.  Looking forward to whatever never brand Skoak is bringing to the table.

There is no clear winner in this situation.

I am definitely disappointed I will no longer be able to purchase my favorite brand of shoes from an absolutely first rate store where the focus is on customer service. As others have said, this development and decision by Patrik is not a complete surprise.

Edward Green is not geared toward flexibility, which is the bottom line for me.

I can't say I'm surprised, either, though I will be sad to see EG disappear from Skoak's stock list.  I know Patrik is making what he feels to be the best decision and that is more than good enough for me.

I would like to be associated with the words of the last speaker nod[1].gif

This, gentlemen, is what they call a masterful tease!

 

Can't wait for the deets!
