The Lancaster Oxford lace-up is one of the top styles of Church's classic collection. It stands out for its sleek, elegant upper with double stitching on just the toecap and quarter lining. As each hide absorbs polish in a slightly different way, some degree of variation in the appearance is natural and precisely what makes these shoes so beautiful and unique. The size, fit, last, quality control number, date and style name are all written by hand on the inside of the upper in a special calligraphy and the thick triple sole, which includes a layer of foam for added comfort, features a storm welt with bead around the top, which helps keep water out. The outsole measures at the longest and widest points, respectively: 13.4" x 4.8".
