I have finally collected these today, a pair of true Balmoral Oxfords with diamond punch captoe in Freudenberg (Weinheimer) boxcalf by Antonio Esposito on my bespoke last by Steven Lowe of Crispinians Ltd
I am having this made up to replace an old pair, balmoral shoes (not just what we call Oxford in Europe, but proper balmoral with the vamp extending all the way to the back. I am hoping to pick them up next weekend yo be worn with s morning suit at Royal Ascot
Thanks Aristoi, the lasts are by Steven Lowe (ex JLSJ) @ Cispinians Ltd
And the second pairs, plain captoe Oxford, about to be lasted
I am planning to post the finished shoes here, so in the main time a preview of my near future entry:
