“Oxfords, not Brogues.” If these immortal words from the film Kingsman: The Secret Service resonate with you in any way, we commend you for being a true gentleman. There’s no denying that the understated and classic elegance of Oxford shoes are only made better when worn with a well-tailored suit. However, despite being the ultimate gentlemen’s shoes, Oxfords are unfortunately uncomfortable, made with stiff leather that seems to dig into every part of your ankle, while the hard outsole has the magical ability of causing pain that will slowly shoot its way up through your spine to your neck. Despite the blinding agony that some Oxfords can cause, gentlemen have stuck with these shoes for ages for good reason — after all, they are incredibly handsome shoes.
Feeling sorry for your feet, Wolf & Shepherd has gone though extreme lengths to assure that their dress shoes are more forgiving and comfortable on your feet. As a track and field athlete for Notre Dame, as well as having worked for adidas, company founder Justin Schneider has distilled his experience with performance footwear to create dress shoes that offer athletic comfort and high level of quality and craftsmanship. The Wolf & Shepherd Cap Toe Oxford offers the same classic style we’ve come to love from Oxford shoes, but keeps your feet feeling happy thanks to is calfskin upper, Poron Instat-forming memory foam footbed, EVA foam heel adapted from athletic shoes, carbon fiber arch support, and modular soles that’s interchangeable for with summer or winter tread patterns. Available in Onyx and Maple Brown, these Oxfords offer timeless class without crippling your feet.
