At $1,220, the Edward Green Chelsea Leather Oxford isn’t the kind of shoe you’ll probably want to wear out by everyday use. For those times you want to make a solid impression, though, it’s the one you retrieve out of the rack, shine to a polish, and proudly don, along with the nicest things in your closet.
You know how they say a great pair of dress shoes should be treated like an investment? That’s certainly true here, with a style and craftsmanship that should last you many years, provided you properly care for them. And, no, that doesn’t mean petting them like a dog or talking to them like a plant. Instead, just the usual shoe upkeep, all while taking precautions to wear them judiciously (like, if it’s raining hard and you’ll have to brave the downpour, pick a shoe you can afford to wear out).
With the Edward Green Chelsea Leather Oxford Shoes, you’re, basically, paying for top-shelf materials and skilled craftsmanship. This is Edward Green, after all, who hand-crafts their shoes from the same Northhampton factory they’ve been operating out of since the 1890s. It’s as classic as it gets, too, with a cap-toe Oxford design, welted soles for durability, subtle stitched detailing, and full-grain leather construction with a polished, lightly-burnished finish.
When you want to impress for a job interview, smarten up at a corporate affair, or just look downright dapper at a wedding, this is the kind of footwear you turn to. Hit the link below to cop yours.
