Unlike cathpah, I would say that the appeal is precisely a more boot-like work oxford.  I like the slightly sprung toe of the Mansway, and the external heel counters, which are key to the style.  Otherwise they look just like regular shoes.  So, I think it's great...
That's the question... I emailed back and forth a bit with RDT about ordeing a pair but the English just was not clear enough and responses were sporadic so I gave up; especially because I was unsure on sizing and returns seemed unlikely. I think a few dealers on Rakuten have them and they might be easier to deal with.
Yes indeed, I was in the market for a good pair of work oxfords and then the half-Japanese option came along.Speaking of which, I hate to tempt you more, but have you ever seen the Coupen boot by Rolling Dub Trio? Pretty nice.,
 Mansway has got some nice boots (and shoes).  I spent some time coveting several of their boots before giving up on the idea.  Some are made specially for them by White's and also by Julian and are things you can't get elsewhere it seems.  I remember looking at these oxfords (I think, or similar ones) but didn't know they were White's.  They've also got some nice Wescos as I recall.
@meso, looks like your wallet is about to take another hit..!     From Instagram.
These look so cool..
They used the Shinki on a couple of service boots last year as I recall.
What length do you need? I may have a pair I can mail you..
 Oh right, SD rather than BH, but those are the ones I was thinking of.  They look great I think-- nearly made me switch to Swing Last.  Really like the Munson like curve to the outer toe area, and nice rounded toe.  But other pics of the Swing Last don't have quite as nice a shape.  So, not sure if they'd end up looking as good as these or not...
A guy posted a pair several months back -- thy looked good. I'll see if I can find it tomorrow, when I am on a computer rather than a phone..
