Derived from the original Oxonian boot worn by students of Oxford in the 1800s, the Oxford shoes we know today originated in Scotland, where they were occasionally also known as Balmorals after the Queen’s castle. Characterised by their “closed” lacing, in which the eyelet tabs are stitched beneath the vamp, the Oxford shoe delivers a formal, structured style that can bring a touch of class to any outfit.
Men’s Oxford shoes are ideal for dressing up an outfit for any occasion. The closed style of the shoe differentiates it from the slightly more relaxed brogue or Derby shoe, and gives a more structured look, perfect for formal occasions. Oxford shoes look great with smart trousers or chinos, making them a great footwear choice for a wedding or christening or for smartening up at work. An Oxford shoe, however, is undeniably versatile, and can also be used when struggling with the ever-tricky smart / casual dress code - when paired with jeans and a blazer, Oxfords are ideal for bringing a smart and fashionable edge to your look.
