Pitch Black Captoe Oxford Elegant Round
This product is sold out
The classic Captoe Oxford, made from the finest Weinheimer calf leather, famous for its color black. With its clean lines and intricate brogueing along the toecap, these shoes are a true statement of sophistication. Built on the Elegant Round last featuring a half rubber sole, the shoes are finished by hand to achieve a high lustre on the toe.
Construction: Goodyear welted in Spain with half rubber sole. The Goodyear welt enables the shoe to be resoled. Leather board heel stiffeners and cork footbed for added comfort.
Leather: Black box calf leather from the German tannery Weinheimer. Tanned according to the same principles as the old Freudenberg tanned box calf.
Last: The Elegant Round last is a more refined version of the well-known, traditional round last. With slightly more taper towards the tip and a distinctive toe profile, the Elegant Round last is a very handsome last.
Fit: We advise you to take the same size as you would in Carmina or Crockett & Jones, and to size down half a size from Edward Green or Gaziano and Girling.
Care: Brush your shoes after wearing them to remove dirt, and rotate your shoes between wears. We recommend to use a high quality, natural conditioner ever so often to keep the leather supple. Creams and waxes can be used to restore scuffs and polish the shoes to a lustre.
