N° 543 details

The term “Oxford” signifies that the shoelace eyelets are stitched underneath the vamp. The extra piece of leather this entails, along with the panel over the front of the shoe, characterise the cap-toe. The calfskin is hand polished, too, making our cap-toe Oxford stands out in any crowd.

Take advantage of our optional additional features. After you have selected classic shoes in the proper width, you can opt to have them fitted with a high-quality Rendenbach leather sole, or with winter-proof features. Please note that this option is not available for models made with wide or extra-wide lasts.

A timeless men’s shoe – the Cap-Toe Oxford

Oxfords first appeared in England in around 1830. According to legend, Oxford University students wore the half-boots with slide slits to rebel against the ankle-high boots which were in fashion at the time. A classical pair of cap-toe Oxfords is handcrafted in quality leather and constructed for maximal comfort.

The leather upper boasts a sleek look and a timeless cap-toe front. The cap-toe Oxford promises long-lasting comfort in a snug footbed. The vegetable-tanned leather sole adds flexibility to this men's dress shoe, while ensuring durability and shock absorption. All in all, this classic welted shoe offers cushioning, support, breathability and durability.

Classic and simple style

The black cap-toe Oxford is the right choice for the discerning businessman. Perfect for the office, dinners out and special social events, its simple elegance makes it the ideal choice for a variety of outfits.

Whether for a meeting or a night at the theatre, the cap-toe Oxford makes long days on your feet easier. It is a stylish piece of footwear and a great way to promote good foot health.

Classic shoes in different varieties

Our classic Goodyear-welted men’s shoes are made with quality outsoles. We also offer a special alternative—you can choose to have your new shoes fitted with world-renowned Rendenbach leather soles, which are incredibly scuff- and water-resistant. Please note that Rendenbach soles cannot be added to models made with wide or extra-wide lasts.

Men with broad forefeet and/or high insteps can also enjoy our elegant, classic shoes. The extra-wide version of No. 543 features a broader overall width as well as an elastic insert at the quarters, which ensures a perfect fit and makes the shoe easy to put on. When hidden beneath the trouser leg, this variety can hardly be distinguished from traditional Oxford shoe design.

For the cold, wet season, we recommend our classic shoes with winter-ready details. They are lined with soft and cuddly lambskin, which keeps feet comfortably warm, as well as a non-slip rubber lug sole, which guarantees secure traction on slippery surfaces. You can choose between a classic variety and a winter-ready model. Please note that winter-ready details cannot be added to models made with wide or extra-wide lasts.

General information about our formal shoe collection



Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.



The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.



These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Gentleman's Corner

Gentleman's Corner

These shoes come equipped with a so-called "gentleman's corner". This is a small notch cut from the inside corner of the heel. This has a practical purpose—it prevents your trouser leg from catching on your shoe.



This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.



Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the logo. Said shoebox is easy to open, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a note on our philosophy.

Spare Shoe Laces

Spare Shoe Laces

Should you find yourself in need of new shoelaces, look no further: this pair of Goodyear-welted shoes comes with a spare pair of shoelaces. Made of 100% cotton and treated with wax, these shoelaces are of the very best quality.

Shoe Bag

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.



Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.


Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.


From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.

Our team was founded by a pair of shoe lovers, and each and every employee focuses on satisfying our shoe-loving customers. Whether it’s graphic design, sales, marketing, editorial, or customer service, we handle all aspects of our business internally, ensuring our total control over all processes. We’re also owner-managed.

Your feedback

Your opinion is important to us; that’s how we define our business. If you’d like to express your satisfaction with our products and services, let us know. You can read reviews from other customers as well as experts in the shoe industry on the site. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
