A Maine tradition and known by many names, the 4-eye oxford can be traced back to the early 1900's and has been carried through generations of brands and makers ever since. This is a brand new pattern version of this shoe, and it's one of our best.
Each stitch is sewn by a craftsmen or women with over 20 years experience making footwear. True moccasin construction allows a shoe to wrap, shape, and mold to your foot and will only get more and more out of it the longer you have and wear them. The vamp and kicker are hand sewn by awl and needle, not prepunched like 90% of other boat shoes you find. This allows the shoe to be crafted onto the last, and the handsewer uses their skill to adjust and fit the shape, so that each shoe starts out a bit different, and ready to take the shape of your foot.
Upper constructed from Horween's Famous Cavalier in a deep navy. We left it unlined for breathability and lightness.

It's recommended to size down half a size from your normal dress shoe sizing. If you know your size in other true handsewns, it's best to stick with that in ours.
