    Saw some at DSW, I will pay more attention to those in the future.

    The Spanish Edward Green?

    I have a pair with which I am satisfied. I purchased them at DSW a little over a year ago. They are dark brown suede (seen here and here). Since, I've seen some calf leather ones at the same DSW and am less impressed with those at the same price of $125-$150. YMMV.

    This thread is the only substantive informational reference that came up when I Googled Eduardo G. shoes. I've bought 4 pairs over the last couple of months, at one Daffy's or another in NYC. It would have been 6 pairs, but the other two styles I liked haven't been in stock in my size. At $69.99/pair, I can't imagine I've ever gotten a better value on anything. I was even seduced into a pair in black, after having sworn to never wear a black shoe again. Right now, DSW.com has a split toe in a 9M for $115.00; if it were my size, I'd jump on it. I don't understand how the original retail is only $150.00 - I've never seen a $150.00 shoe at that level of styling and construction.

    photos of the shoes?

    I think I still have a photo of one pair in my email, I'll look; the others I'll have to photograph and post later in the week.

    I imagine all of the Daffy's selection were seconds. The insole of this pair, I didn't realize until afterwards, is maybe a quarter inch short of the toe, and the coloration is a bit uneven, but I would imagine that's easily corrected. I've already worn them a few times without even worrying about it.

    I came across these shoes today at CitiShoes in Manhattan. They're located at 56th & Park. Went there for the first time because I heard they carried Allen Edmonds, but found out that they also have a nice lineup of Eduardo G's, Alden's, Church's, and several other great brands.
    But back to the Eduardo G's. The guy at the store said they were from Portugal. The shoes looked very impressive for the price, and I was told they hold up very well. I'm thinking about getting a pair of the black cap toes I saw.

    I just picked up a pair at DSW in San Francisco:

    These are from their "collection" line (if that makes any difference), are made in Portugal rather than Italy. As bigbris1 states, they are a touch wider than most in the D width, which is a godsend for me as I seem to occupy that space between D and E widths. Comparing these to my C&J-made Peal&Co 10E in size, these are 10.5D but are nearly the same length but are a little narrower. A perfect fit for me actually.

    Cheers to an affordable & decent quality shoe that fits (me) great.


    Great looking shoes. Where in SF is the DSW?
    Not that I find my size.

    For anyone still interested in the topic, they are blake stitched, made in Portugal, and you can buy them from Shipton & Heneage who have a USA catalog and website. The link to the eduardo G products is here.

    I am sitting with the rep right now, actually. I hadn't heard of the brand prior to our appointment.
    All of the shoes are the softest leather I've experienced in a long while. The craftsmanship is amazing. My buyer is the sample size and says one pair of shoes is "like I'm wearing nothing". The shoes are leather from top to sole. Also note that the sole is treated with the same dying technique as the shoe itself. In some of the more rugged styles, the leather is as soft and pliable as your old reliable favourites.Think Frye, but without the intentionally scuffed sole, and more dressy. The styles come in a black, chocolate, cognac, honey brown, and burgundy - all incredibly luxe.
    Basically, these shoes epitomize craftsmanship and luxury. They will last forever and will only look better with age. Buy them!
