Number 578 details

Crafted from a single piece of leather, our wholecut Oxford in red-brown is an unforgettable work of art; something only a real craftsman is able to produce. Closed by seams at the back of the quarters it has no other perforations on the leather upper. That makes a wholecut Oxford such a challenging shoe to produce, of course using one of the oldest methods of traditional shoe manufacture – the Goodyear-welting method.

From a shoe-making standpoint, a wholecut Oxford is one of the most difficult shoe styles in the world. Because it has no stitching to allow some give when pulling the leather over the shoe last, the manufacture of a wholecut Oxford is difficult. If the lasting, (taking the leather upper and attaching it to the wooden form that represents your foot) is not done properly, it can create an area of loose leather in the finished shoe.

Wholecut Oxford – most elegant men’s dress shoe in the world


The closed five-hole lacing of our wholecut Oxford fits the foot perfectly, but allows the wearer a comfortable entry at the same time. The soft and smooth calfskin produces a sophisticated shiny leather upper and boasts an elegant antique finish at the toe. Thanks to its painstaking manufacture and its uninterrupted lines a red-brown wholecut Oxford is one of the most elegant men’s dress shoes in the world.

Combining a passion for tradition and modern style, the wholecut Oxford in red-brown would suit any smart minimalist. It looks great with cord and tweed and is the ideal choice for jeans as well. Whether for the office or for free time – a red-brown wholecut Oxford is an expression of the fashion-conscious gentleman’s good taste.

General information about our formal shoe collection

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Gentleman's Corner

Gentleman's Corner

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.

Breathable

Breathable

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.
