Carlos Santos 9281 Lazyman Oxford In Algarve Patina GMTO
Welcome To The Carlos Santos 9281 Lazyman Oxford in Algarve Patina GMTO Crowdfunder!
Yet another unique and exclusive Group Made to Order at The Noble Shoe. You will not find such Carlos Santos make ups anywhere else in the world!
Many seek comfort, versatility, good looks and proper construction in one pair of dress shoes. Apart from Loafers there is only one really good alternative that ticks all those boxes. A "Lazyman" Oxford. A shoe that imitates an Oxford but has decorative lacing and instead an elastic side that allows you to slip on and off without having to lace your shoes. Extremely versatile and convenient.
The 9281 is a very special Lazyman Oxford from Carlos Santos which is Goodyear Welted in Portugal, meaning you can re-sole it as many times as you want. This particular model kicks it up a notch as it is on the Sharp 387 Soft Square Last that you have been requesting a lot.
This model is also a Brogue that functions as a "Balmoral" Wingtip with a Punched Medallion Toe and perforations all the way to the back of the shoes. To complete the look, I chose the most requested Patina of them all which is Algarve. Algarve is a Mid-to-Dark Brown Handpainted Patina with exquisite burnishing around the edges.
The name is rather self-explanatory, as it allows you to slip on and off quickly and effortlessly. The side-gusset is rather discreet and more often than not will allow you to pass it like a proper Oxford Dress Shoe! The Broguing and color makes it easy to match from suits to chinos and even jeans.
Sizing Advice 387 Last: An chiseled last with a soft-squared toe and futuristic look. Perfect for lovers of the Adelaide and Italian shoes. Fits true to size and advice is to size down one full size from your US size. Read more on our lasts here.
