Redwood — a new antique calf
One of the defining characteristics of an Edward Green shoe is the rich patina built up through layers of handwork. No dull tones, nor flat colours rather deep variegated shades with a touch of translucence like the french polish on a favourite piece of old hardwood furniture.
A few months ago we looked back through our archive of shoes seeking inspiration and came across a beautiful pair of brogues with a tint that caught our eyes. They were a shade or two darker and redder than chestnut but warmer and lighter than burgundy. Our polishing team set to work and soon managed to replicate this wonderfully vibrant colour - and just in time for summer too, a season redwood is made for.
There are now a selection of classics available in redwood antique — the Dover split-toed derby, the Cadogan semi-brogue and the Camden chelsea boot — and no doubt in time redwood will become a popular choice for custom orders from those seeking something full of character and a little out of the ordinary.
