  • how our Italian shoes are made Thomas Bird fitting advice: Camden
    "Fits ever so slightly generous by around a quarter size. With leather insoles, they fit true to size. If you are inbetween sizes, then we normally recommend dropping down to the nearest whole size."

Product details

Oxblood patina Oxford with Cibram rubber sole

Oxblood is a unique and versatile classic colour and looks great for work and special occasions.

These are Italian made wholecuts, using full grain calf leather. Being a wholecut, each shoe is made from a single piece of calf leather, so only the highest grade near-flawless leather with  can be used. There is just a single joining piece at the back. It’s a very elegant, dressy formal shoe, ideal for work and special occasions. Oxblood is a very versatile and classic colour. The shoes would work well both at the office and special occasions such as weddings and black tie events.

The shoe has closed lacing that makes it the Oxford a formal shoe. There is a re-inforcing stay stitch for strength.

Craftsmanship/attention to detail

attention to detail

Looking inside, we see the Thomas Bird branding, embossed into a piece of calf leather, foam backed for added comfort. The top line is neat, with no raw edges, as we taper or ‘skyve’ the edge, then fold and stitch it. We use a genuine full leather insole. Inside the heel, the reverse counter, we use suede to stop your heel slipping. We use round, waxed laces with are anti slip to keep your bows tied up.

What you can’t see are the two stiffeners, between the calf upper and lining. There is one in the toe and another at the back around the heel. These are important to keep the shoe looking good as it ages, and we use longer, high quality stiffeners to achieve this.

Stitched Vibram leather sole

The long lasting Vibram rubber sole is stitched onto the leather upper with a traditional Italian method called Blake Stitching This an in-channel, lock stitching technique, so even if one stitch is worn or breaks, the other stitches will be still securely locked in place. And being stitched, the sole can be easily replaced when it eventually wears. We prefer Blake Stitching to Goodyear Welting as we think it produces a lighter, more elegant and flexible shoe, with a neater, less visible edge.
