Oxford Shoes For Men
Oxford shoes for men have been a staple item of clothing and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future due to their timeless presence and classic silhouette. Oxfords qualify as a type of footwear for both men and women and are widely worn around the globe, as suggested by their name, as suitable for multiple formal and semi-formal occasions and events.
The most common types of oxfords for men
Considering only the oxfords for men, there are a number of constructions and closing techniques that make them different from each other as well. Starting with the upper constructions, if you want to opt for an evening/formal look, you may go for the one-piece vamp oxfords. However, if you are looking for shoes in order to attend official and more corporate events, you may go for the toe cap with the vamp option (more commonly known as the school shoes).
The third and more fondly accepted and worn type of Oxfords by men are the more commonly confused Brogued oxfords, shoes that have perforation/dots on the upper, as a shoe type but the brogues mainly have to do with the ornamentation techniques rather than the upper construction. Then there are the whole cut oxfords (one-piece construction toe to counter), followed by wingtip (pointed wing on the toe), and the more contemporary take by design houses like Tom Ford, Prada, and Alexander McQueen with their innovating the design through hybrid options.
Another thing to help differentiate between appropriate types and choose the right oxfords for men is to consider different toe shapes as per the relevant event or if the plan is to be versatile and go for more than one occasion.
The classic shapes mainly comprise of the rounded, semi-rounded, and rounded square toe. But also keeping in mind the current trends, more geometric shapes have also become widely acceptable along with the classic shapes.
