This is actually correct DpprDr. A Veldt and storm welt cannot be combined. It took a while for Edward Green to confirm this. But I can now confirm that our Galway Veldtschoen in Rosewood CC and shearling lining will be without a storm welt for the simple reason that the Veldtschoen construction simply does not allow for it.

This means it would not prevent water filling your box in a stormy and rainy day?

No, it means that the storm welt is obsolete because the veldtschoen is constructed to be water resistant. The veldtschoen is supposed to be even more water resistant than a Goodyear welt with storm welt.

These are not lasted, but adapted for specific lasts/widths and we stock two versions, one is for the 888/606 lasts and E/F width. The other is for 202/82 lasts and also E/F width. We can order the D/E width versions as well on request but because we do not stock any D-width models in our store we don't carry these.


Interesting...I always thought the shoe trees fit all lasts. Have I been mix and matching my 888 and 82 trees? I don't want to impose but if you (or any other member) get the chance, is it possible to take a picture of the 888/606 vs. 82/202 to see if there are any differences?

Don't mean to rain on anyone's parade with my questions but I guess it's best to clear up any variables (I doubt this simple detail with the storm welt will be a dealbreaker).

Just to contribute a bit to the confusion I can say that I have EG shoe trees stamped as 808 as well as 82. If you care, I can snap a photo of them side by side.

DpprDr - if you're a size 8 I may be the one who snatched them 😉. Beutiful shoes and, as always, an exquisite shopping experience.

If I could remotely justify another dress shoe purchase in the burgundy / bordeaux / oxblood range, I'd be all over this.  Really gorgeous.

Here you go - 202 on the left (Edwardian dark oak) and 606 on the right:





The two shoes are actually half-a-size different, hence the slight difference in overall size of the shoe trees.

The 202 shoe tree is more rounded and a bit flatter. The 606 shoe tree is slightly more chiselled and has a more pronounced shape to the instep.
