Among all the models of Oxford Shoes, there is one shining as much as the city of skyscrapers; our classic Philadelphia. A comfortable and elegant shoe, there is no design available can be compared to the simplicity and sophistication of this brown English shoe. The Philadelphia is a cornerstone of any gentleman's wardrobe.
Our plain Oxford in brown, The Philadelphia, is without a doubt a “must have” for any season a businessman might need them for. They are perfect for a usual day at the office or a night event when combined them with any kind of suit and they are also perfect as wedding shoes. They fit especially well especially with a suit.
The Philadelphia is a shoe manufactured in Spain, made with the best and first quality box-calf and hand-sewn utilising a Blake construction. Mounting it on our Wellesley last, we've obatined a more elongated shoe with a more rounded tip than The Chicago. The leather sole has a non-slip embedded rubber Spy, ensuring that rainy days won’t be a problem anymore. In addition, our patented FlexiComfort system will absorb the weight of the foot making your feet comfortable and you won’t have to suffer during the long days at the office.
Wellesley Last: The Wellesley is a shorter last with a round sharp tip, the result is a more visually compact form and with a bit more edge than the Crawford. All this makes it the perfect choice for mounting on Balmoral and Chukka boots.
This last has a wide instep and subtly marked shank, making it ideal for penny loafers as well as tasseled Oxfords. The Wellesley is certainly one of our most versatile and popular lasts.
All of our shoes from our classic line are made with Dupuy box calf, from one of the best tanneries of the world. We guarantee color, texture and unique smell in all of our models.
