One of the most popular shoes from Bridlen, the punch cap is undoubtedly a versatile style. A minimalistic cap toe with subtle punch details renders this pair of oxfords incredibly attractive to the eye.


The Punch Cap is from Bridlen's founder line, which seeks to push the boundaries of shoemaking by invoking materials, techniques, and crafts that are paradigmatic of higher-end shoes.

360° Goodyear Welt

Direct Channel Stitching (No Adhesives)

  • The Classics of Shoemaking

    Bridlen prides itself on sticking to the basics of crafting a well-made shoe. In lieu of highly industrialised methods, Bridlen elects to stitch rather than glue, and craft rather than merely produce.

  • 360 Degree Channel Welt

    Not all Goodyear welts are equal. Whereas the welt sits below the insole stitched to a cotton rib for most Goodyear welted shoes, Bridlen opts to stitch the welt 360° and directly to the side wall of the insole giving the shoe a sharper feather edge and better flexibility. A thicker insole is required for this process, but the result is a superior shoe.

About Bridlen

Focusing on classic shoemaking techniques, Bridlen is noted for crafting well-made shoes out of European materials. A 360 degree channel welt and an above industry standard insole is standard.
