Austerity meets Elegance in this timeless lace up.
The Classica Collection is our first and still most popular line. Hand-lasted and welted by hand, it features our signature "swallow bird" burgundy shank sole, which is sewn by hand with a traditional Duer machine.
Apparently, the first known reference to Oxford shoes was in 1846 when The New Monthly Magazine writes that “Dress pumps are the only shoes now worn. The Oxonian shoe…is the best for walking. It laces up the front with three or four holes.
Part of our Classica Collection, these shoes come with individual wool dust bags, lasted wooden shoe trees and our leather maintenance kit with wax, small brush and spare laces, all in a beautiful wooden box for proper storage.
Material: French Box Calf
