Highly respected shoemaker J.M. Weston recently announced the release of a new oxford shoe. Moving beyond tradition to offer a subtle blend of leather and rubber.

jmw_oxfords-7Artistic director at J.M. Weston, Michael Perry, enjoys revamping the classics and adding a touch of modern style. The new 300 toe-cap oxford shoe is undoubtedly one to add to that list. Showing off smooth and suede calfskin over a rubber sole, this shoe brings a touch of urban elegance to any gentleman’s wardrobe. An iconic symbol of the brand since the 1930’s, this timeless men’s style fits the foot to near perfection.

jmw_oxfords-3Designed at the J.M. Weston factory in Limoges, the new release is constructed around a crepe rubber sole. While the shape of the shoe remains unchanged, the rubber sole is deliberately more casual, meaning the shoe can be worn in a wider variety of situations. Slick, minimalistic design is set off by the shoe’s shiny yet soft leatherwork. Blending modern style with authenticity, the 300 toe-cap oxford is a symbol of an independent man on the move, who enjoys the classic styles. Stepping into autumn colour-ways, the smooth calfskin is available in black and burgundy, while the suede calfskin comes in navy blue and camel.
