Never heard of it... this one below? Also, they sell polish water??? seriously?

Pretty sure EGs own polish is just boot black rebranded.

I own every product they make, I think. Dumped all my Saphir. As one user above indicated, EG’s own polish is re-branded Boot Black.

Also, these arrived today. Simply stunning. The Edward Green Galway in black shell cordovan with a black London grain shaft, on the 82 last, and with the R2 rubber sole. I honestly may not even wear these. Too lit.

boot black is good stuff. I switched to it a couple of years ago.

Stunning indeed. Not a fan of black footwear in general, but IMO black shell is hot. And these being Galway takes them to another level.

Gotta say london grain is perfect for the shaft. Softer than country calf too I imagine?

Well put. I like these more than the lighter shell/suede combo that EG do. More practical too.

Is anyone able to give me some advice on EG sizing please?

I'm 24, from the UK, looking at buying some new brogues for work and some desert boots for casual wear, I currently only have some Church's Size 10 F on 136 last. I have some low-end desert boots in size 11 and they're a little tight around the toes, so wonder if they'll break in or if I may need to size up. I tend to wear size 12 Chelsea boots too, but these are also low end currently. Casually, I tend to wear the size 12 Chelsea boots or size 13 converse (sorry!), but I want to improve on this.

Can anyone advise on what size I should be aiming for with EG for brogues, desert and Chelsea boots please?
I'm trying to improve my shoe wardrobe currently.

If you are from the UK why don’t you try them in person?
