Details about 124
No. 124 is a high-heeled, cap toe Oxford in black with closed 5-eyelet lacing. This lace-up, low-rise shoe is a feminine reworking of the classic men’s Oxford, which enjoyed immense popularity at the turn of the 20th century. Elegant block-heeled models such as this one were all the rage in the 1930s, and have been cherished ever since.
A timeless, feminine classic—the black heeled Oxford
No. 124 features closed 5-eyelet lacing as well as the cap toe detail for which the shoe is named. While plain Oxfords are completely unadorned, this model is distinguished by a decorative cap toe seam as well as delicate double seams running along the quarters. Moreover, this black heeled Oxford has been made using the Goodyear welting production method, which is rarely applied to women’s footwear. This centuries-old traditional handicraft ensures breathability, a perfect fit, extraordinary longevity, and ease of repair.
This black Oxford high heel is a quality full-leather shoe; the shaft is made entirely of fully-dyed calfskin, and the inner lining, insole, heel, and outsole are all made of vegetable-tanned cowhide. The outsole and heel have been sourced from the Trier-based Rendenbach leather factory, which has been producing premium leather soles for over 140 years. The heel is held in place by 15 brass pins, creates a comfortable foothold, and ensures that the shoe can be worn for long periods of time.
A tasteful classic, this black cap toe Oxford with a mid-height heel is a valuable addition to the style-conscious woman’s wardrobe. Whether worn in the office, to an important business meeting, or during free time, this shoe creates a reliably elegant look.
Elegant lace-up shoe. This cap toe heeled Oxford features closed 5-eyelet lacing and a black leather upper. A true classic, this shoe is well suited for the office as well as for leisure activities.
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.
