Full-brogue Oxfords first appeared in Ireland and Scotland in the 19th century. The word “brogue” is itself derived from the Gaelic for shoe. In former times, the punch decoration protected men’s feet from the water that would seep into the shoes in boggy conditions. The perforations allowed the shoe to drain off the wetness and offered good breathability. Full-brogues were considered to be outdoor shoes or country footwear for a long time – today they are an essential item in every man’s wardrobe.
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.
