Thank you very much!

Unfortunately I am not able to take any different ones than these close ups - lens not wide enough ;)

Thanks for the photos ammanati! Not bad at all for the city line! Such a classic, timeless and elegant last!

No problem!

Agreed, not bad at all! Foster applied some slight changes which makes the model definitely nicer. I tried all classic black toe oxfords, starting from the bottom line. Must say that the top line was the best in terms of fit but the City line model was only a notch below. Considering the price it is a great value shoe. Better than middle range model must say.

The Fred Astaire spectator and the co-respondent on the fosters archive....the lasts are some of the most stunning of the classic English chiseled toe that I have seen...

 

I am hoping to add a spectator to my line-up at some point...but I think for that last I will have to go the bespoke route...better start saving up haha

The shop window that doesn't like to be photographed! 

 

We have tried numerous times of the day and plenty of camera angles but we have almost always failed to keep out the reflection.

 

However here it is in all its glory nonetheless.

Right all, competition time.

 

As ever there is a choice of polish or cream for the first to guess the correct answer.

 

 

 

 

 

What is this particular style of shoe known as at Foster & Son?

 

Good Luck!

Whatever name F&S might use, the style is generally known as "Elastic on Instep"
(the two quarters are held closely by an inch of elastic, which is covered by the vamp and it's tongue.

Brings up bad memories of the 60s! biggrin.gif

Bengal-stripe, you are of course correct but we have a very specific name for it, and I share the bad memories of the 60's!
