Editors notes

The Oxblood Benson Wholecut Oxford dress shoe is a smart choice for any Executive. The Oxford shoe’s smooth upper is crafted by hand in Italy, from a single piece of calf leather. The interior leather lining and hand stitched sole with rubber insert ensures that this dress shoe is comfortable and long lasting.

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

The Oxford shoe is designed to look clean and seamless. There is no outer decoration, so it can be paired well with more formal attire such as a fitted suit or even a black-tie event.

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.

It can be matched with a clean, fitted white shirt, brown suit jacket and chinos or suit trousers depending on the look you want. If you prefer to dress down slightly for client drinks in a local city bar, you can always keep your shirt and jacket on, but change into a simple pair of straight legged jeans which also works well with the oxblood Oxfords.
