Edward Green

Founded 1890 in United Kingdom
Based in Northampton

Edward Green was a man with a singular passion for shoes. Starting in the industry as a twelve-year-old apprentice, Edward was driven by an ambition to make a better class of shoe. He established his own workshop in Northampton in 1890, gathering around him the town's most illustrious craftsmen, each an expert in their respective field, and sourced the best materials for them to work with.

'Excellence without compromise' was his promise and soon his name became associated with the finest English Goodyear Welted footwear, gracing style icons from Ernest Hemingway to Edward, the Duke of Windsor.

Edward Green continues to strive to make the best shoes possible, refining and improving where appropriate, but always taking the time to ensure that each pair of shoes is fit to bear the company founder's name and dress another generation of men who appreciate the difference.
