How to maintain Edward Green shoes.
By following some simple guidelines as set out below, you can promote the life of your shoes.

Use a shoehorn when wearing. This will make the shoes easier to put on and will mitigate damage to the back.
We advise wearing different shoes on occasion rather than wearing your Edward Green shoes every day.
Be sure to insert shoe trees soon after wear.
If your shoes become wet, wipe away any dirt with a damp cloth, insert the shoe trees, and allow the shoes to dry naturally away from heat.
Apply a slight amount of wax to your dried and "rested" shoes. Polish the welted areas in particular with a soft cloth.
Welted leather soles and rubber soles can simply be replaced and repaired.
