Alden #907 Straight Tip Bal Calfskin

Everyone makes a straight tip Oxford, so why choose Alden?

smfdoc

Pros: Classic style with fit and finish details that take it up a notch

Cons: Cost and limited opportunity to try on in a brick and mortar store

The straight tip black calf Oxford is a classic style offered by nearly every men's dress shoe shoe manufacturer. A cap toe oxford is a closed lacing shoe with a straight stitch cap, with the quarters sewn under the vamp and fastens together by laces over the tongue, which is sewn onto the vamp. This means they have a very similar look, but a wide variation on price. The nearly identical...

Sutor Mantellassi Men's C 567 Oxford

Pros: Aerodynamic silhouette increases speed when making a hasty getaway; swamp green color lets you blend in in the sewers

Cons: Laced construction is really hard to tie up with three fingers; a buckle would be better.

Allen Edmonds Lasalle Dress Shoes

Allen Edmonds Lasalle Dress Shoes

“The Lasalle is a superbly designed dress shoe that can be worn with almost anything, although I don't prefer to wear this one as a casual shoe.   The classic, conservative split-toe design (similar to the Wilbert), caught my eye.  Similar to the popular Delay, the Lasalle is slightly different in design.  The Lasalle is simply a Delray that was re-designed by Nordstrom, but also...” --Lobster33

Loake Strand

Loake Strand

“STYLE Loake Strand is a semi brogue Adelaide.

“I kind of wish they came in standard leather sole with English heal. Fun while they lasted. That said if I found a pair on sale for no more than half the price, I would buy them again. Taupe color is the best. ” --yucaseca

Florsheim Vincent Wingtip Oxford

Florsheim Vincent Wingtip Oxford

It is a standard lower priced foreign made shoe that is comparable to many other Florsheim styles. As an occasional shoe it is fine for the person who has a limited shoe budget but wants to add a long wing to their...” --smfdoc

“I don't know if ostriches and turtles are natural predators, or if ostriches and turtles are ever in the same location, besides the zoo, at the same time, but I do know that these are the ultimate shoe for fighting crime after radioactive ooze transforms you into amphibian form.   Master Splinter is strict when it comes to a proper uniform, so you won't get any demerits with these when...” --sprout2

Allen Edmonds Men's Wilbert Lace-Up
