Originating in Scotland and Ireland the traditional Oxford has been the staple of a gentleman’s wardrobe for in excess of two centuries. And while in America the style of Oxford may vary greatly, the traditional template is as unchanged as ever.

 

Alden Straight Tip Blucher Oxford - This American made Oxford is a rarity on the list, both for being made in New England and also because the Alden company is family owned and has been since 1884. There is a hardly a company more proud of the successful heritage than Alden, and they should be. The Straight Tip Blucher Oxford is a sturdy shoe in a tradition mold. Featuring walnut brown calfskin and a double oak leather out sole, the shoe is designed for gentlemanly style as well as durability.
