19 – Black balmoral oxford shoe for Elliott, 9.5E last 200

Elliott asked for a black dress shoe and I’ve only made balmoral boots, so this was a perfect opportunity. This is the same black leather I used for pair #2 and #5, hard to believe! These were my best-looking soles to date, with the alternating rubber and dyed leather, burnished edges, finished, oiled, etc. Also my first time forgoing eyelets; I like the effect a lot!

Black calfskin upper, tan lining, combo black dyed leather + black vibram rubber sole.
