Proving that less is more, the classic OS apron and heel details on this elegant lace-up give it an obvious edge over plainer styles. The contrast piping around the edge and down the apron is carried on to the heel "badge", so the shoes are memorable from the back as well as the front. The stitching effect of these Italian-made shoes is a visual treat. The two eyelet fastening gives a lovely smooth profile to the front of the shoe and the leather soles will not let you down. This versatile style can be worn dressed up or dressed down.
Arriving in London at the tender age on 15, men's footwear designer Oliver Sweeney landed his first job after introducing himself to the manager of a bespoke shoemaker. In 1989, Sweeney launched his own business based on the Anatomical Last - a unique in-sole design created after years of intensive research, perfectly sculpted to support the arch of the foot. Now famed for crafting unique footwear in classic hues, Oliver Sweeney shoes never fail to appeal to the modern day gentleman.
