This black cap-toe Oxford features a shaft made from the finest, fully-dyed calfskin. Its lining and insole are also made of leather — the latter is stitched to the shaft and outsole by means of a thin strip of leather. Goodyear-welted construction and sophisticated materials ensure that No. 315 provides a perfect fit and is highly breathable and long-lasting, to boot.
Unlike its British predecessor, though, this black cap-toe Oxford features a light EVA outsole — an unusual feature on a classic men’s shoe. The result: an astoundingly low weight and a correspondingly comfortable lightweight feel.
At first glance, No. 315 looks like a classic cap-toe Oxford in black. Upon closer inspection, though, its light outsole and matching shoe laces indicate that this model is a touch less formal than its traditional counterpart, which features a leather sole.
