The Cardiff is a 5 eyelet, half brogue derby. The derby offers a point of difference from the classic straight-cap oxford and makes it one of the most versatile shoes you can own. As a half brogue, it has a relaxed style without the full country feel of a wingtip. With its finely bevelled waist and clean, angular shape, it is a sleek and refined shoe. The Cardiff is crafted on Edward Green’s 202 last, a favourite here at Double Monk. It has a round toe and resembles the best in British elegance. The fine stitching and minutely punched brogueing show the attention to detail for which Edward Green are famous. This is a style that pairs beautifully with denim, but goes equally well with a sports jacket and trousers. It is an elegant everyday pair.Established in a small Northampton factory in 1890, Edward Green has gained a deserved reputation for ‘making the finest shoes in England for the discerning few’. Edward Green’s shoes are made with the finest calfskin to the highest standards of workmanship. Each pair takes several weeks to create and many master craftsmen are involved.
