Introducing a new style from Red Wing; the Genuine Handsewn Oxford, available in two makeups.
This Oxford takes classic Oxford styling, adds some unique touches from Red Wing, and creates and all round classic, yet unique silhouette. Sat atop an American made Plantation Crepe sole, the shoe features lovely contrast baseball stitching and rawhide laces, giving it plenty of character.
Available in two different material makeups, this Oxford is either made from Copper Rough & Tough leather (9157) or Camel Muleskinner leather (9158), giving two easy-to-work-with options. I think I prefer the smooth, dark leather found on the Copper Rough & Tough version, giving that vintage boat shoe look, but still retaining endless amounts of Red Wing character. The Plantation Crepe sole is made from 100% natural rubber and was a common addition to boat shoes back in the 1950’s. I can’t imagine these being anywhere near lightweight with that much Crepe and thick leather, but they sure will be comfortable when they wear in.
