Dude why are you here... this is the Edward green forum so people here are buying Edward Greens which are expensive. Why are you trolling

@sforum1


3 pairs in 2 months, 4K on 3 pairs of shoes, yes that does sound like someone who's rational with their spending. I wish you stopped kidding yourself. There is no good that can come from that. None.
He absolutely did, either he wants to be or he tries to be or he thinks he is, or at the very minimum he knows he should be.You learn how to read.

I know the truth hurts. If one thinks spending 4K is irresponsible they should face it and clearly acknowledge it and that's the first step for doing something about it.

You can spend 10K on a pair if you want, what do I care, but what's the point of even mentioning 'rational spending'? And if that does not refer to your situation, whose situation does it refer to, mine? I am not the one who spent the 10K on a pair of shoes that could easily cost me $300 while being just as good. Makes no sense.

If that makes me an ahole, ok. Quite honestly, though, I think he should be thanking me.

I'm now very sure you got a 10/10 at some point in first grade, or it could be a 0/10 all along. It's one or the other, can't be anything in between.

yes, "Fellow members" need your advice on what to do and what not to do. Good thing they have you. Sit and spin my friend, sit and spin. And I hope you don't bother replying, it seems you already know where the block button is.

Every post you have is about shoes and about money....why are you critiquing people buying Edward Green shoes in the Edward green forum. Not sure why you even are here participating?

Wearing my Malvern outside for the second day. Sunny and warm sitting on a grass bank enjoying an iced tea. I ordered them (MTO) last August, received them in November but only started wearing them outside since yesterday. They were very tight factory-fresh out of the box but are loosening up although the left shoe still feels a bit tight - I think my left foot is slightly bigger than my right foot - interesting I am left foot dominant but right hand dominant... ☺

I also wore them to the mall today and almost slipped. I think it’s the brass tacks on the heel. I’m wearing them outside on paving to get scuffed for traction before I venture back indoors.

Btw the shade is Edwardian Antique... It looks different in sunlight compared to indoors👇... I was thinking to use Saphir light brown with maybe mahogany for burnishing... or what would folks recommend?

These look great as-is with just the right amount of burnishing. I wouldn't touch them for now, may be apply leather conditioner as needed.

Steve,
How long have you been selling Edward Green shoes for?
Since 2015

Another shoutout to Steve and GF. I have purchased a number of pairs of EG from him over the past few years. Great service and far and away the best selection in the US.
Thank you very much!

Thanks for the advice - yes I better leave them alone until they need it. That’s the factory burnishing and I do like how subtle it is done - I’m not sure what shade of polish they use on the toe, but it is very light touch - just right.🙂

It's in the 202E?

Curious to see how the Edwardian Antique compares the more common Chestnut Antique.

This pic looks more like chameleon antique or maple than Edwardian antique. It must be the lighting. But Edwardian antique looks really nice especially after you've applied cream a couple of times.
