Black Oxford Brogue
This black oxford brogue with a sumptuous leather sole is a great addition to your collection. The brogue detailing to the toe and the vamp means these lace-up shoes are very of the moment. The formality of the closed system of lacing enables these shoes to be worn in a work environment. It is, in fact, that system of lacing which describes the main tenet of the oxford shoe. Back in the 1800s at the University by the same name, students wore boots called Oxonians which after a while, became known as oxfords. This is after they changed a bit by becoming more like shoes than boots and the slit became centred. The brogue story is more steeped in labouring and originated from men working the fields in shoes that had holes in them. Over the years, they became a country style shoe.
