Wet look shoe, One of the originals and undoubtedly one of the best, for wedding, social funtions--
the Oxford wet look – not to be confused with its close relation the Derby – is the perfect occasion shoe.
What sets the Oxford apart from the Derby is its ‘closed lacing system’,
which is an elaborate way of referring to the fact that the bottom of an Oxford’s lacing section is sewn closed,
with the eyelet facings stitched underneath the front section of the shoe.
It’s the sleek simplicity of this detail which makes the Oxford such a winner.
And while there are plenty of variations on the classic design now available,
it’s the black leather cap toe Oxford that we feel every man should have in his collection.
This minimal, subtle shoe complements formal wear perfectly –
whether you’re wearing a tux to a black tie function or a charcoal slim-fit suit to an important job interview.
