The Oxford Refined
If we were to name the classic footwear staple for any man's wardrobe, the Cap Toe Oxford comes to mind. If we had to choose the staple color, we'd probably choose brown. Yeah, we know, pretty basic stuff. So how does Bespoke Shoemaker Norman Vilalta refine and distinguish our Oxford from all the other brands, you ask? Simple, the details.
For example, we aligned the heel cap of our Cap Toe Oxford with the heel, and the heel cap wraps around the center back to form the inner quarter. In addition the outer quarter of our oxford wraps around the the center back to form the heel collar. The result -- a seamless center back, a cleaner design, and execution that most shoe brands don't bother to think about.
And if that isn't enough to "wow" you, take a peek inside our shoe. Our padded insoles are embroidered with our signature atelier pattern. Not only do they look nice, they're comfortable as well.
Each pair of our oxfords are proudly made in Spain, Goodyear welted, and hand finished in our workshop in Barcelona. This process includes hand detailing with a roulette, hand polishing, and a professional glaçage. We then wrap them up in velvet lined dust bags and pack them in our signature blue and gold box.
If you would like to see our Cap Toe Oxford in person as well as meet Bespoke Shoemaker Norman Vilalta, feel free to drop by our atelier and men's shoe store in Barcelona, Spain.
