    I emailed EG for a list of stock shoes in my size and on the list was a shoe called Isham.Does anyone know what this shoe is? A picture would be much appreciated if possible.

    If memory serves me right it's a semi brogue with small punching, similar to the Cadogan. Edit: Actually, I think it does not have a toe medaillon, but it comes with small punching along its throat. Harrods Knightsbridge used to sell this model in Acorn or Edwardian (and might still do so). It's a nice semi-formal to formal shoe. .

    Aintree is a C&J model, no?

    Just as Z, the first thing I think of when reading "Aintree" is C&J's Handgrade 3-eyelet Derby on the 337 last. I'm afraid that no Edward Green Aintree comes to mind. I'll look into it though. There's a certain shop in Birmingham/UK that opened last Friday and it's ran by a lovely person who knows all there is to know about EG. I'll try calling her tomorrow and will get back to you then.

    She will have forgotten everything about Edward Green.

    Don't you know, they routinely brainwash new recruits in staff training?
    "When I clap my hand, you wake up and you will not remember.......etc."

    They call it the "Northampton candidate".

    Here is one shoe from my pair of Ishams.

    Bear in mind they are an 11F and that the punching is smaller than normal.
