So (friendly question...), what makes a shoe genus oxford, species balmoral?

I believe an Oxford is more formal and traditionally has a sweeping (similar to a longwing) design. On my phone right now but will try to find a pick later. Balmoral and blucher are just descriptions of the closure (I think).

This is a good post explaining it:

I've noticed that you rarely see balmoral shoes though. You often see them as boots, which I think the original design came from.

Other way around, but yes you're headed in the right direction.

Interesting. I see the difference. Thanks.

Wondering if anyone has interest in a dark brown suede cap toe boot on the Barrie last double oak leather soles.  The make-up below was from Moulded Shoe a few years ago style #4081.  I think if enough people are interested they may put another order in.

They can add a commando at the store, with Alden factory parts.

I didn't order anything from them, but they answered my email within about 12 hours.  I think they are about 6 hours or so ahead of eastern time.
