3-Eyelet, Wing-Tip Oxford
Out of the over 200 American Shoemakers clustered around New England at the start of the 20 Century, only a handful remain, among them Bostonian, Cole-Haan, J &M and, in Europe, the better know Alden and Allen-Edmonds. The great Florsheim, Hanover, Cordwainer, Nunn-Bush, Bostonian and the maker of this fine shoe, Weyenberg. Many exist today as marketing firms, the bulk of their wares being produced off-shore or do not exist at all. Lamentable.
The Wing-Tip Oxford is a standard today but the 3-Eyelet model is rarely seen and identifies it as a mid- or early 20th century product. With its chisel-toe, and ultra-polished finish, this is a marvelous classic model in the old practice of workmanship, a handsome and extremely durable shoe in a hundred year old tradition. Hand-welted.
