There’s no surprise why the Durant Oxford Brogues is one of the most popular items in the Beckett Simonon’s collection. These shoes are handmade one at a time by local artisans in their factories both in Europe and South America. Beckett Simonon creates a new and unique product each month and allows the customer to pre-order the shoe one month prior to it being made. This is a user- friendly and creative way to both market and shop for a shoe and one that I’ve not seen offered by any other shoe company. These Blake constructed shoes are beautifully made of soft full grain calf leather and are fully breathable providing ultimate comfort for long days (or nights) on your feet. They also have a sturdy leather sole and are made with durable rubber heels. I paired the Blake with blue and yellow lightning bolt socks and blue cotton glen plaid pants. This outfit felt both formal and comfortable and one that I’d wear to either a gala or a summer soiree. If you need any other reason to buy Beckett Simonon shoes, they have excellent customer service and confidence in their product and all purchases are provided a one year warranty.
