    This makes perfect sense, which is probably why English shoes fit me better because of my higher instep. Thanks, Bengal.

    I did have a chance to pop into EG today, all the shoes (in my size) I saw were the usual 30% discount. They had more shoes then expected (all the shelves were full of shoes), either they had a lot more shoes on sale this summer or it has been a quiet period for them.

    I was disappointed by the lack of black options in my size and width, many in dark brown and a few in blue two; I purchased a pair of their wool socks, anyone know who makes them?

    Edward Green stocks Gallo socks (possibly the only store in London to carry Gallo).

    But whether all of EG's socks are made by Gallo (or only certain designs), I wouldn't know.

    They are made in Italy, which probably means they are made by Gallo; I did not check the cashmere socks.

    EG have confirmed current socks are Bresciani-made, they no longer stock Gallo socks.

    Just a quick heads up to any EG fans who might not yet know:

    Leffot have got up to 30% selected EG models on their online store so give them a look if you're interested

    I agree. Won't be everyone's cup of tea but you won't run into others anywhere.

    No problems at all. Very fast shipping and receiving (got them 3 days after ordering), plus they pay all import fees and tariffs.

    Pretty great.

    Can anyone tell me if there is much of a difference between Acorn and Edwardian antique.

    Looking at pictures it seems as though Edwardian is a bit darker and Acorn has more of an orange colour to it.

    I've already got a shoe in Edwardian and I'm thinking of getting a similar shoe in Acorn. Are the colours too similar for this to be a good idea?

    You guys, if you can buy 2 VASS shoes in place of 1 EG, what would you do ? Being close to Budapest i have access to VASS shoes at a very good price but having more than 10 VASS shoes i would like to change a little bit style. I am still hesitating to buy a pair of EG because of price. What would you recommend ?
