An Oxford shoe is characterized by shoelace eyelets tabs
that are attached under the vamp, a feature termed "closed lacing". Originally,
Oxfords were plain, formal shoes, made of leather but they evolved into a range
of styles suitable for both formal, uniform, and casual wear. Based on function
and the dictates of fashion, Oxfords are now made from a variety of materials, including
calf leather, faux and genuine patent leather, suede, and canvas. They are normally
black or brown, and may be plain or patterned (Brogue).
Oxfords differ from Derbys, or Blüchers because those shoe
styles have shoelace eyelets attached to the top of the vamp. Again, the Oxford
style shoe is characterized by shoelace eyelets tabs that are attached
under the vamp.
A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort
the human foot while doing various activities. Shoes are also used as an item of
decoration. The design of shoes has varied enormously through time and from culture
to culture, with appearance originally being tied to function. The oxford
is only one of many styles in the menswear market.
