A black captoe oxford is a tried and true classic in any gentleman's collection. This is, in part, due to its versatility to match most shades of suiting fabric and patterns.

Now, if a shoe is as much of a staple as a black captoe, it is ever more important that they be comfortable. Yearn's OXF 221 take is comfortable and flexible on account of its hand-welted construction. The outsole has been handstitched and each brogue detail has been meticulously looked after.

+ Sizing

  • Hand-welted Construction

    In contrast to Goodyear or cement welting, hand-welting is a labour intensive process that results in a lighter and more comfortable shoe. The uppers are held on the last for an average of three full days.

  • Bark-tanned Soles

    As a standard feature, all Yearn shoes have premium leather soles that have been bark-tanned. Every outsole is also hand-stitched, which extends the number of possible resoles.
