Details about 559
Our No. 559 is a quarter-brogue Oxford in black. The Goodyear-welted full-leather shoe consists of finest, French calfskin and is additionally equipped with a flattering closed six-hole lacing. Furthermore, only the toecap seam and edges of the vamp’s panels are decorated with elegant patterning. That makes the quarter-brogue a real rarity amongst classic men’s dress shoes.
Restrained patterning underlines the elegance
Created in around 1830 in England, the black Oxford is the foundation of any men’s wardrobe and is also recognised as the favourite men’s shoe in the world. The clean lines, the closed six-hole lacing and the sharply pointed French shoe last characterise our No. 559. Traditionally crafted from vegetable-tanned calfskin, its inner linings, insole, outsole and heel – held in place with 15 metal pins – are from vegetable-tanned cow leather, too. Less typical is the decorative punched pattern along the toecap seaming and side panels.
Brogueing has its roots in Scotland and Ireland. Generally it is used with a wingtip or a rosette-perforation in the middle of the toecap. The reduced ornament of our quarter-brogue Oxford in black underlines the clean cut and lends this classic men’s shoe a modern touch.
No. 559 is a versatile all-rounder amongst men’s shoes. The fine brogueing guarantee a stylish appearance in the office without dimming the shoe’s elegant character. Our black quarter-brogue Oxford cuts quite a dashing outline in combination with jeans, too.
Dynamic men’s shoe, whose counter cap, visible seams and toecap edge boast subtly ornamental brogueing. The quarter-brogue has the same toecap style as the half-brogue, but only does away with the rosette perforation in the middle of the toecap.
Our French last features a two-centimetre toe vault, narrowly tapered front, and comfortably wide mid-foot area. Lively and modern in design, this kind of last is perfect for average-width and narrow feet.
This shoe’s upper boasts premium, medium-soft and fully-dyed calfskin. The technical term for this kind of leather is "French calf". This type of leather is known for its flexibility, fine texture, and soft grain.
