Traditional wing tip shoes are also brogued (holes stamped in them) but we love the elegant simplicty and clean lines of this design. Made in Naples, Italy these elegantly crafted Oxford shoes use Blake stitch construction. The real leather sole is stitched (rather than glued) to the Italian leather upper. More durable than a glued sole and more flexible than Goodyear welted. With a rubber inserts on heel and sole to prevent slipping they will stand you in good stead for years to come.
