I was in a vintage store in Tokyo a few years ago and saw a beautiful pair of 1940’s English toe cap Oxfords. The thing I loved was the last, it was very round, but not bulky, just very elegant.
I made a mental note and recreated it when I got home and this is it. To some it might not seem anything special, but to me it has lovely proportions and is completely timeless. I have put a very plain toe cap Oxford upper on it, typical from that time and still relevant today.
