OxfordThe most easily recognisable of all classic styles, is the elegant English Oxford. A formal style that dates back over two hundred years, it is thought to have been named by the students at Oxford University, although it is almost certain that the style predates this ‘naming’ further still. The sequence of operations for constructing an Oxford differs to a Derby. The Inside and outside Quarters are stitched underneath the Vamp and the tongue is stitched in separately underneath the Quarters/Vamp/Facing. Often referred to as ‘Closed Lacing’.
CementCemented Construction: A shoe construction in which the upper of a shoe is cemented, rather than stitched, to the sole of the shoe. Cement construction results in a lighter, more flexible shoe.
Calf full grainFull grain leather is, ‘a fine quality material where the leather’s natural pore structure or “grain” is healthy, and is left untouched. This material is tanned with aniline dyes to bring out its natural characteristics and depth of colour when shoes are finisched and polished.
