Through to the 20th century, the style dictate “no brown in town” reigned supreme, barring all upper colours besides black from sophisticated occasions. That rule has long been overturned. Now, shoes of all colours, such as this Goodyear-welted half-brogue Oxford in bordeaux, are welcome at elegant affairs. This modern shoe thrills with a fully-dyed bordeaux upper.
The supreme discipline of shoe manufacturing. In an elaborate process, the upper and outsole are sewn together using a thin strip of leather. This makes the shoes extremely stable, durable, dimensionally stable and extremely easy to repair.
Probably the most elegant men's shoe model in the world. Provided with the characteristic closed lacing, the Oxford is the shoe classic for the upscale occasion.
