We like think of the Midford cap toe oxford as a modern version of Edward Green’s Chelsea. It’s a classic English shoe no doubt made for elegant and business affairs, but two small differences give it a modern look.
Made on the 82 last, as opposed to the 202, it has a narrower, sleeker silhouette. The punching at the toe gives the shoe flair without being ostentatious.
I like the fact that it is a single leather vamp rather than a stitched on cap. It’s a subtle difference which is enough for me, it’s the only black shoe I own.
