We designed the Taylor Oxford specifically for fans looking for a truly barefoot dress shoe that preserves the elegant wingtip Oxford silhouette. This sophisticated foot-shaped shoe is fit for all-day wearability, making it suitable for all your formal endeavors, whether it be in the office, a night on the town, or any black-tie affair. Typical dress shoes can be stiff, narrow, and constricting, but our Oxford boasts a comfortable and healthy zero-drop sole with a wide toe box, giving your toes plenty of room to stretch as you conquer any special event. Finally, a dress shoe that encourages natural movement.

  • Made in USA: designed and handcrafted in Oregon
  • Premium Austrian leather with hand-applied finish and rich sheen
  • Breathable and lightweight: approximately 9.8 oz per shoe (for size 8U; other sizes vary slightly in weight)
  • 8mm flexible, zero-drop Vibram™ Geo sole with 6mm midsole
  • Timeless style with the ability to be resoled by a third-party cobbler
  • Intricate broguing detail to further enhance elegance
  • Spacious toe box allows feet to move naturally

Check out our Bar Lacing Guide to give your Oxfords that extra polished look. 


HEALTHY POSTURAL ALIGNMENT 

Traditional dress shoes are typically constricting, prohibiting your feet to be able to move in their full range of motion. Additionally, most feature a slight heel, which over time puts added strain onto your body and wreaks havoc on your posture. High heels are not the only shoes we consider heels, as even a slight heel-to-toe drop can have the same negative effects. When elevated heels and constriction are paired together, it's the perfect recipe for long-term foot and overall health issues. Designed with a zero-drop sole, your body will have the ability to remain in natural, healthy alignment.

WIDE TOE BOX

The Oxford features a foot-friendly design with a toe box that is much more spacious than your typical dress shoes. The regular width is roomy for most, or you can select the Wide width—a hybrid between our standard and primal sole shapes, allowing for even more toe space!

OXFORD STYLING

Traditional Oxford styling refers to a specific upper vamp pattern where the eyelets are concealed under the vamp, and the foot opening comes to a "V" in a clean manner. This creates a sharp look which elevates Oxfords above the Derby or Blucher patterns used on simpler dress shoes. Beyond the concealed eyelet requirement, there are a lot of different pattern puzzles that can be combined to make stylish versions of the classic Oxford. Tuxedo cap toe is considered the most formal version as you can see in the minimal, straight line of our Hamilton Oxfords (right). Wingtips are considered to be more fun, as evidenced in our Taylor Oxfords (left), and are appropriate for business casual events or everyday use.Taylor vs Hamilton Toe Box

Shoe manufacturers sometimes add broguing (patterns of decorative holes) on various parts of the upper. Our limited edition Dune color features an exclusive Cosmo motif inspired by the stars.
