Claremont Women's Retro Oxfords (Black)
Tone-on-tone details with a mix of textures make the ideal 1930s shoes. We're proud to reintroduce the new, updated Claremont Oxfords, a stylish reproduction of a classic original in the London College of Fashion collection.
Claremont is made in soft and durable suede, trimmed with matching smooth leather, and tied with grosgrain ribbon bows. These oxfords feature a round '30s toe and our revised, well-balanced 2.5 inch / 6.3 cm Spanish heel. Wear Claremonts with any Art Deco period attire from c. 1925 all the way through the 1940s.

I've had them for almost a year now and I'm absolutely in love with them. I don't wear higher heels often but these definetly feel different than mordern shoes. The tip of the shoe is flat on the ground bc they are soft enough to roll through, that took a bit of adjusting.
I wore them the first time for a walk through the city (~40min) without any socks and that was a mistake. The stitching of the trimm rubbed on my toe and it was not pleasant, wore them with ballerina socks and had no problem, so even a very thin layer is enough.
Beware of leaves! Especially damp/wet ones. They are slippery as hell, walk carefully!
Beautiful shoes. The leather is very soft and they feel very comfortable.
