Editors notes

The Black Benson Wholecut Oxford dress shoe is an elegant choice for any gentleman. The Oxford shoe’s sleek upper is hand-crafted from a single piece of Italian calf leather, making it stylish and minimalist with clean lines and a smooth surface. The interior leather lining and hand stitched sole with rubber insert makes these dress shoes comfortable and long lasting.

With a sharp, hand burnished chisel toe, the shape of the Oxford shoe gives it a more suave, upmarket appearance, making it perfect for sophisticated evenings out.

There are five eyelets on each side of the upper, with a closed-lacing system giving these Oxfords a neat and tidy presentation. Each lace is hand waxed for a shiny, hard wearing finish.

Amazed at the quality and craftsmanship
01/03/2017 Benson Wholecut Oxford in Black
I purchased the Benson whole cut because I wanted the long tapered style and since I have narrow feet it is hard to find a whole cut shoe that fits well. This Thomas Bird Benson fit the best out of the many I tried-although it is not tight. It is beautiful and can hold its own with other whole cut shoes in brands much much more costly. I was amazed at the quality and craftsmanship at such a low price. It wears like a bespoke shoe.

There is no decoration on the Oxford shoe, so it can be paired well with more formal attire such as a dark suit or even a black-tie event. The depth of color is apparent, ensuring that the eyes are drawn to the black Oxfords for all the right reasons.

We recommend wearing a black Wholecut Oxford shoe to formal dress occasions and pairing it with an understated tie and sharp suit. If you do wish for the Oxfords to stand out a little more, we recommend selecting the Iguana effect design in blue, which adds a subtle texture to the dress shoe.

There are a number of other colours to choose from including Chestnut, Tan, Brown, Olive Green, Iguana Effect and Navy Blue.

Main Features

  • Minimalist, sleek design
  • No seams or patterns
  • Smooth finish
  • Closed lace system
  • Chisel toe
  • Five eyelets on each side
  • Multiple colors to choose from
  • Perfect dress shoe
