White’s Revives A Historic 1800s Dress Shoe With The First Avenue Oxford

White’s Boots is one of the world’s foremost footwear providers, and thanks to almost 170 years of experience crafting the genre’s finest shoes, its revision of the 1800s staple, the Hunting Oxford, is just as appealing now as it ever was. Luckily, the revered brand is releasing its very own take on the iconic silhouette, while still emphasizing the needs of the modern commuter.

The First Avenue Oxford, as it’s been dubbed, is a substantial reconstruction from the company’s lauded archive, introducing a dependable high-rise upper for increased support around the ankle, and a full-grain, water-resistant fabric to make it an attractive proposition for the avid walker. Built upon the company’s durable MP Last, this unique silhouette boasts a leather midsole and shank, a grippy Dainite sole, and a Goodyear Welt, making it entirely resoleable. On the shoe’s exterior, a soft suede complements the First Avenue’s heritage-focused persona. Head to White’s website to pick up a pair of your own for $280.
