Details about 586
Look closely at our No. 586 and you will find almost no seams on the leather upper, just two small seams on the counter cap. The elegant wholecut Oxford is Goodyear-welted in a painstaking process from one single piece of leather. Only an experienced craftsman is able to create such a unique piece of men’s footwear.
From a shoe-making standpoint, the wholecut Oxford is one of the most difficult shoe styles to last. The lasting process involves taking the leather upper and attaching it to the wooden form that represents the foot. Because it has no stitching to allow some give when pulling the leather over the last, the manufacture of a wholecut shoe is extremely difficult. If not done properly, it can create a spot of loose leather in the finished shoe.
Wholecut Oxford for an extraordinary appearance
A traditional wholecut Oxford in black is one of the most elegant and unadulterated shoe styles in the world. The closed five-hole lacing fits your foot closely, while the eyelet tabs allow the wearer to relieve the instep. The soft calfskin and the smooth line management ensure our wholecut Oxford boasts an unrivalled sophisticated appearance.
Our No. 586 looks great with a dark pinstripe and is the ideal shoe for any formal occasion. A black wholecut Oxford is also the top candidate to replace a patent dress shoe, should you want an alternative with your dinner suit. This versatile full-leather shoe can accompany you through your entire day, from office and to the theatre, and even looks fine with a smart pair of jeans, too.
If you are a lover of men’s dress shoes it is time to add a Goodyear-welted pair of a wholecut Oxfords to your wardrobe.
The shoe’s upper is painstakingly crafted from a single piece of leather, closed by discreet seaming at the back. The black Wholecut with characteristic closed five-hole lacing is the purest expression of the Oxford style.
The standard British last form. Subtly and elegantly narrows at the front of the shoe, without sharply rising from the ground. The average width at the ball of the foot provides a great fit for average 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.
