Details about 123
No. 123 is a cap toe Oxford high heel in dark brown—an homage to women’s shoe fashions from the 1930s. Oxfords with mid-height heels have circulated since the turn of the 20th century, and reached the zenith of their popularity in the 1930s. Classic Oxford design, a rounded toe cap, and a mid-height heel make this dark brown Oxford an absolute eye-catcher, perfect for both day and night.
Trendy 30’s-style smooth leather shoe
Although still relatively scarce in the 1910s, in the years to follow lace-up heeled Oxfords grew ever more popular. Their wide block heels made these shoes a particularly attractive, practical choice for the increasing numbers of working women. While plain Oxfords are known for their unadorned vamps, No. 123 features a delicate toe cap seam, which gives this model its name. An elegant last form and closed 5-eyelet lacing—tucked beneath the vamp—round out this dark brown heeled Oxford’s stylish appearance.
No. 123 is a full-leather shoe: the upper portion is made of fully-dyed, dark brown French calf, while the inner lining and insole are made of vegetable-tanned cowhide. In combination, these materials guarantee breathability and ensure overall quality. Thanks to a Rendenbach sole and heel, this dark brown Oxford is also water- and scuff-resistant. This model is also made using the Goodyear welting production method, which guarantees a perfect fit, extraordinary durability, and—whenever necessary—uncomplicated repair.
No. 123 evokes the footwear fashions of the 1930s, combining traditional design with quality materials. Whether you are in the office, taking a stroll through the city, or relaxing at the end of the workday, this cap toe, dark brown heeled Oxford guarantees a sporty, elegant appearance.
Elegant lace-up shoe. Featuring a cap toe detail, signature closed 5-eyelet lacing, and a dark brown leather upper, this classic shoe is perfect for the office as well as for free time.
Gently rounded towards the toe, with a toe box that rises slightly from the ground. This last lies close to the foot at the instep, and is of an average width at the middle. Significantly narrower than the classic last, the elegant last is recommended for average and low insteps.
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.
For the past 140 years, Rendenbach has used oak bark tanning to produce leather soles—the process can take up to nine months. These soles are renowned for their extreme durability and natural water repellency. Women’s shoes with Rendenbach soles are a real novelty.
