Vintage shoe designers really knew how to kick a basic oxford up a notch with perforation, stitching, and all sorts of added interest. The Bellevue Oxfords feature these quintessentially vintage hallmarks, replete with a reproduction perforated design that goes all the way through the upper to create the most fabulously flexible, breathable, and attractive design.
Built on a new round-toe vintage last with a high toe box, the Bellevues take their upper design directly from an original 1930s lace-up in the American Duchess collection, but we've adjusted the heel height and toe shape to be more comfortable and accommodating, with our perfectly-balanced 1.6 inch / 4 cm Cuban heel.
The Bellevue Oxfords are ideal for all attire from the 1920s to the 1960s, especially for CC41 compliant and nurse uniform shoes. Bellevue comes in a high-shine, glacé finish based on originals.
