Perfectly fitted oxfords should close at the lacings.

Really? shog[1].gif

I thought that a slight opening will allow room to adjust as your feet constantly vary in size over the day, sometimes quite significantly.

never heard that.

In my personal experience I tie my shoes in the morning - take them off at night. Very rarely do they need, nor get, any adjustements in between.

Perhaps others will chime in.

Coming soon to a threak near you.



Sorry for the cruddy pics. Heading out today for NYC, Delhi and Doha - going to be pretty monotonous in the shoes - 3 pairs for 12 days - lots of duplicates.

G love all the socks, especially far left for fall!

I agree with your oxford comment. If theres no excessive creasing in the toe box and the lacing closes then its almost a perfect fit.

great news! i am not alone. i think if the shoes close entirely and are still loose that is when there is an issue.

I bought them in the for sale section here on the forum.

thanks! i had taken a different pic, and then i saw that area in my lawn, and it was too good a photo up to pass up. its actually right next to a tree stump, (that i was sitting on) which i really wanted to incorporate in the pic, but couldnt get the right angle.
