The Perfect Oxford To Compliment Your Black!

Nobody can argue about the versatility of a good Brown Oxford. A great fit for all things business and blue, but also much easier to pair in more casual settings than a Black Oxford.

Today we are building on the huge success of the New Black Oxford introduced in March 2020: The 9899 Handgrade Oxford in Dark Oak Calf on a new exciting last and reverse clean stitching.

What makes this model unique? First of all, this is an exclusive model Carlos Santos will make for just The Noble Shoe. It is part of the 2021 collection and the New 445 Last. It is also part of the Premium Handgrade Collection which offers you better quality yet lower price point than Brands like Carmina or Crockett & Jones. Less money, more features, exquisite quality and value. And the most striking looking Brown Oxford on the market. This is a purchase you will never regret.

Additionally, the stitching on the uppers is reversed, which means you see a line instead of the stitches. This creates the classic Cap-Toe Oxford but with such clean lines it becomes the ultimate formal shoe.

As for the last itself, the 445 is New and fits very similar to the 401. It has slightly more curvature around the wider part of the forefoot creating an extremely attractive shape as you can see in the pictures. You should always choose the same size as your regular 401 Carlos Santos Shoes.

The Sole is an absolute work of art. Very rarely will you come across such high quality finish for this kind of price range. The sole is also hand painted with a unique Patina.

The Handgrade Collection is the holy grail of value and quality. It is phenomenal and I have witnessed the construction of a shoe from start to finish in the Carlos Santos Factory. More pictures to follow soon!

    Great advice and awesome shoes

    Kostas reached out proactively after my order to ensure a proper fit on my new Carlos Santos shoes. After getting a bit more information on my sizing, he nudged me to consider ordering a half size down and the fit he suggested is perfect. The shoes are a phenomenal value - I’d definitely recommend them. Well made and high quality leather with a flattering shape. Overall great experience and customer service.

    One of the most succeded Oxford, a must !

    The oxford is prettier than pictures, more refine than photos can refers to. The elongated last is still in perfect proportion. For my feet, 7 needed a little break-in with shoe tree (few days). As I was reaching for my size with Kostas for my first pair he was a real help. I would advice you to comply with him for a better fit ! Best buy ever... Despite is apparent simplicity, this oxford is one of the best and succeded last that I've seen, and you can easely spot it. Very class and versatile. A must ! And for the price, the handgrade is fantastic...What else ?

    Solidly made & well priced pair of Oxford

    Solidly made & well priced pair of Oxford! This is second pair I bought from Carlos Santos through Noble Shoe. Customer service and shipping was on high level both times.
