I enquired with EG about a refurbishment that would include a relating from E to F, but EG refused and offered to stretch them instead. Sounds strange to me as C&J have been very accommodating in relasting to different widths (and even sizes). Anyone has experience with this with EG?

On SF other posters have said that shoe factories can only recast width downwards not upwards, so, based on that I’m not surprised EG said this. Stretching can make a big difference however.

CJ always caveats too that it may not deliver the desired results. I've had them relast a half size down, but never asked to go the other way

Is there any extra charge to relast a size down versus what a normal resole by EG would cost?

Does anyone know what this color and leather is called for the Edward Green Chelsea? This is my first pair, just picked up secondhand.

Mine are quite similar and the color stated on the box is Dark Oak Antique.

If you really want to know you can write Edward Green and politely ask them for the details to include color and year of manufacture

I managed to pick up a few pairs from the Factory shop sale on Saturday to add to the collection, and one pair has got me intrigued.

It's a lazyman, which I know is not a current shoe, but the waist is quite different to typical EG, and the black sole is also something I haven't seen before. Likewise a slightly tapered heel.

They are boxed, which states the model is 'Bodie 2', with some measurement adjustment written also.

Anyway, they fit lovely, with a lot more arch support than normal.

Does anyone know anything about these?! They were pretty cheap TBH, but I like them.

Nice pickup. Looks like they may have been a MTO / bespoke that the intended customer didn’t pick up or pay for.

Fiddleback waist in EG typically means that it’s a top drawer shoe, and the added arch support seems to imply that too. Although the E/OWN in the Last section seems to also imply this may be bespoke of some kind? Who knows.

Oh wow - that would be amazing. I'm sure there were a couple more like that hidden away behind the door - I wish I'd had a longer look!

I've never had a top-drawer shoe from EG, so maybe this is the one and only I'll have 😆
