Wow! Looks great. What last is that on and how old?
I'm not big on exotics but I like those Dovers.
did you notice there's only one stitch pattern? how are the twins doing? hope all is well.
Guys, my store is selling out their Edward Green's and are not re-ordering. I can proxy some shoes if anyone is interested for $695 CAN plus shipping. This might not be worth your time as EG's perhaps go on sale more in the USA than Canada. After paypal fees I'd be making about $35 per pair of shoes, so I'm not looking to get rich here. They have several styles including Dovers, Ringwood, Walcot, Falkirt and Oundle. They may have more but those I know for sure.
If you're interested send me a PM with your size and I'll see what they have.
Edit - no more requests for proxy please; for those who have already contacted me, you have till end of Saturday to decide, after I won't have time to proxy.
getting a little overwhelmed on the pm's, a good thing I guess but I'm not a shoe expert so please bear with me. The store does not stock anything other than D sizes so please let me know what you would like in that size. Also, I don't think they have any boots. I will respond to PM's asap.
From what I can see in the pictures on ebay, it looks like they replaced the insole as well. Is this correct?
If so, one has to wonder, why not just make a brand new pair of shoes?
edit: Actually I've figured it out - to replace the heel counter the shoe would have to be relasted, and I don't think this is possible with gemmed shoes. Hence, a new insole was needed. Again, seems like a waste to me when you could just build a whole new pair of shoes with the same effort.
These need to be my last purchase for a long time!!!!! Warning-pictures are supersized.

These are the suspects! Thanks, the leather really took the cream polish well (combination of Meltonian charcoal grey and black) just to add some depth. When I'm ready to replenish I will try Tarrago. I appreciate the tip.
Sorry guys, but I'm new to Edward Green. Where can I find updated info on lasts? I'm usually 8.5US - 9US and need to match up to appropriate last. Any help is appreciated!
I recommend searching earlier threads discussing lasts but you can also contact the store and request a catalog where they describe last shapes.
Regarding fit, I would guess 8/8.5 or 8.5/9 [add last/fit variability caveat here].
just an update to everyone who PM'ed me. The EG specialist has his day off today, I sent him an email on everyones sizes and he will let me know Wednesday morning. I will return PM's as soon as I hear back.
Thanks again for the offer, unfortunately, the D width is too tight (I wear E). Hope others will take advantage of your kindness. Thought I mention it here than add another PMs for you to read.
Very nice, but way beyond what I would ever be willing to spend on a pair of shoes. Do they fit you?
