I like the sample shoe in burnt pine, a three-eyelet variation on the "Dover" (five eyelets).
These sample shoes are not quite like the Dover, in that the apron is not skin stitched like that of the Dover (I wish it were skin-stitched, as I love the look on the Dover.) Â For a point of comparison, the Lobb's have a skin-stitched apron and toe-seam, but IMO the stitching is not nearly as nice as what Green does. A somewhat funny story: when I went to the E Green factory, I was wearing these shoes, which my wife purchased last August at the Burlington Arcade store during the summer sale. Â When we met, Tony Gaziano looked at my shoes and said he recognized them. Â They were a shoe he had designed and had made up as a sample. Â Later, he pointed them out to a co-worker who works with Tony to translate his designs into production models, and who had also worked on this pair. Â As Tony said, they are one-of-a-kind, since they only made this one pair.
