Why sacrifice your vintage style for practicality when you can have both with a great pair of common sense oxfords? A good, solid oxford is a real asset to any vintage fashion enthusiast. Our Claire 1940s Oxfords meet all the requirements of a sensible shoe while also being stylish and unique.
Claire 1940s Oxfords are direct reproductions of an original CC41 compliant "Academy Girl" brand shoe. They meet all the requirements for most military unit dress shoes and are similar in design and decoration to original styles sold as military dress shoes by historic brands such as Red Cross and Lotus.
Claires are constructed of a black calf leather upper, lined in brown pigskin leather, with leather soling and a 1.6 in / 4 cm stacked heel, just like the original.
