Details about 384
While at the beginning of the 20th century, this shoe was seen as simple everyday footwear, today the fascinating two-tone Oxford is anything but. Our No. 384 is a full-brogue Oxford in white and dark brown with a closed five-hole lacing. Its two-coloured leather upper and fine brogueing exude the nostalgic flair of centuries past.
Our full-brogue Oxford boasts a white leather upper with a dark-brown toecap and counter cap. Ornamental lyra perforations decorate the vamp’s edges as well as the punched wing tip, while the closed five-hole lacing is especially comfortable for any gentleman with a low instep.
Perfect for lovers of contemporary design
Today, the contrast of colours makes these shoes a bold symbol of a contemporary design. In times past though, two-tone shoes had a more functional use. The darker leather parts protected the white leather against dirt and dust. In the 1920s and 1930s, two-tones became the signature footwear of the American jazz scene. The light and dark colours represented the harmonious coming together of black and white musicians.
If you are looking for comfortable lace-up shoes in a traditional style and contemporary design, our No. 384 is an option for less formal occasions. The full-brogue Oxford in white and dark brown also offers breathability, support and cushioning in summery conditions, matching light clothes or a white jacket. It also cuts a dashing outline in combination with jeans or brown fabrics.
Comprising several parts with perforations and gimping along the edges, together with a punched wing cap, this is a special shoe style. Exuding sportive chic and understated elegance, the full-brogue Oxford in white and dark brown is a versatile work of art in leather and an expression of the fashion-conscious gentleman’s good taste.
The standard British last form. Subtly and elegantly narrows at the front of the shoe, without sharply rising from the ground. The average width at the ball of the foot provides a great fit for average feet.
This shoe’s upper boasts premium, medium-soft and fully-dyed calfskin. The technical term for this kind of leather is "French calf". This type of leather is known for its flexibility, fine texture, and soft grain.
The extraordinary white and dark-brown contrast defines the high extravagance of our two-tone shoe. The highly decorated vamp underlines the fashionable design.
