Alden #907 Straight Tip Bal Calfskin

Alden #907 Straight Tip Bal Calfskin

“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...” --smfdoc

Loake Strand

Loake Strand

“STYLE Loake Strand is a semi brogue Adelaide. Adelaide brogues are a variant of oxfords with broguing in a "U" shape around the laces and it does not intersect any other seams on the vamp, also called an "U Throat" oxford. Normally, an oxford shoe has two separate pieces of leather for the vamp and the quarter that are sewed together. An Adelaide brogue has just one piece of leather for the...” --wurger

“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

“The Florsheim Vincent, like its cousin the Veblen, is one of many Florsheim long wings. It appears to be closing out as a style and this still allows some bargains at less than $100. 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

Sutor Mantellassi Men's C 567 Oxford

“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

Allen Edmonds Men's Wilbert Lace-Up

Allen Edmonds' Wilbert lace-up offers dressed-up style with a twist. Its shape is classic, but the topstitch-decorated leather gives it a fashion edge. A thickly padded insole and shock-absorbing rubber outsole add complete comfort to the mix.

Alden Ravello Shell Long Wing Blucher

Alden Ravello Shell Long Wing Blucher

“This shoe polishes up very quickly.  Before work, I lightly brush the shoe and buff it with an old t-shirt and it's ready to go.  The shoe feels a little stiff until it warms up.  After warming up, it is extremely comfortable.  Style wise, the only thing I would have changed is the edge trim to antique.  When the shoe needs to be resoled someday, I will ask Alden to...” --ppith

Allen Edmonds Men's Park Avenue Cap-Toe Oxford

Straightforward, simple styling is the hallmark of this popular leather oxford. The Park Avenue adds just a bit of luxurious comfort to its workaday silhouette with its cork footbed, which conforms to the shape of your foot over the life of the shoe.

Kent Wang Benchgrade Plaintoe Balmoral

Kent Wang Benchgrade Plaintoe Balmoral

Plaintoe balmoral design, the only black shoe you'll ever need. Even more formal than a captoe, the plaintoe balmoral is the only shoe that can be worn with both a tuxedo and a conventional suit. Appropriate for black tie, job interviews, funerals, and everyday city wear. This design is surprisingly rare. One of the only other makers of plaintoe balmorals is Alden, though, as depicted in...
