Details about 350
At first glance, No. 350 seems to be a classic Goodyear-welted Oxford in black. Its delicate, intricate details are only revealed upon closer observation. This shoe features extravagant touches: a lovely rosette on the toe and a curved, perforated seam at the lacing. The latter detail lends the shoe a truly extravagant touch.
A refined black Oxford with broguing
In keeping with tradition, this black Oxford boasts a fully-dyed upper made of supple, gleaming calfskin. The shoe also features classic closed five-eyelet lacing, the hallmark of the Oxford since the 19th century. These stylish design elements subtly and effectively loosen up the appearance of the shoe’s clean vamp cut.
Simultaneously lively and elegant, No. 350 is truly versatile. Thanks to its subdued yet extravagant look, this black Oxford with lovely decorative perforation is perfect for official business affairs as well as for festive occasions such as weddings or receptions. Although this classic lace-up shoe is a touch too formal for casual settings, it does work well with sophisticated leisurewear in general, and with jeans in particular.

General information about our contemporary shoe collection
These shoes come equipped with a so-called "gentleman's corner". This is a small notch cut from the inside corner of the heel. This has a practical purpose—it prevents your trouser leg from catching on your shoe.
This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.
Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.
Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the SHOEPASSION.com logo. Said shoebox is easy to open, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a note on our philosophy.

Should you find yourself in need of new shoelaces, look no further: this pair of Goodyear-welted shoes comes with a spare pair of shoelaces. Made of 100% cotton and treated with wax, these shoelaces are of the very best quality.
These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.
Shoe Care Guide

The values we live by
Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
Made in EU
While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.
For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.
Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.
From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.
