The LYSAND is our classic cap-toe Oxford, the cornerstone of every man’s wardrobe.
Its pattern is inspired by classic British shoe making from the last century with a slightly lower cut and shorter toe cap. In combination with the contemporary round toe shape on our ready to wear last, we’d like to think we created a shoe of modern elegance and understatement ready to accompany you from boardroom meetings to nights at the opera.
Every pair of shoes from our ready to wear collection is hand lasted and hand welted in Italy and then hand finished in our Munich workshop. The bevelled waist is cut and set by hand to give the shoes the curves and profile that resemble our bespoke shoes. If you look closer you’ll find more handmade details that are taken from our bespoke shoes like the hand braided stay stitch and tongue keeper on the upper or the hand set heel and sole edges.
The leather we use is black French calfskin with a beautifully dense and supple grain. The lining is soft vegetable tanned calfskin from Italy and the soles are made from oak bark tanned leather with a natural finish.
Our ready to wear last is between an E and F fitting in width and fits true to size in length. Our sizes are UK standard and we are more than happy to help you find the right size for you.
