The black captoe balmoral is the most classic style of dress shoe and is appropriate for any social function. We’re now stocking a pair from Alden in the Hampton last.
If you wear suits regularly, the captoe bal can be a standby, the kind of shoe that will look classic with any relatively formal suit. Wear it as a subtle, classic compliment to a serious wardrobe.
If you don’t wear suits on a regular basis, the captoe bal is just the shoe for special occasions. With care, you could wear these to every special occasion and important meeting that you attend for the rest of your life. Either way, you’ll be well dressed.
