ABOUT
“1930s Sport Oxford” is based on one of the classic masterpiece outdoor footwear of Red Wing.
STYLE NO. 8071: 1930s SPORT OXFORD
"1930s Sport Oxford" Style 8071 was inspired by Red Wing Oxford "Moc-Toe" design in 1920s. It features Cigar "Retan" leather, Goodyear Welt construction and Gro Cord "King-B" soles with deeper lugs, mainly designed for sports such as hiking, golf and outdoor-oriented footwear.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
"1930s Sport Oxford" is a reproduction of the most popular oxford from Red Wing before the WWII. This type of Oxford shoes existed from the mid 1920s till early 1940s. Red Wing first started using "Moc-Toe" on oxford shoes designs in the 1920s by making with "flat-box" to extend comfort under active foot-movement. Therefore, Red Wing named as "Sport Oxford" which suitable for outdoor uses and daily wear. These oxfords used Gro Cord "King-B" as their outsoles which weer newly developed in that era. It was époque-making sole (developed some decades earlier than Vibram Lug sole) with high grip performance in outdoor environment. This sole is now brought back under cooperation between Red Wing and Vibram USA, for latest “1930s Sport Oxford”.
MATERIALS
Full finished leathers have a smooth, polished surface that enhances the natural beauty of the leather.
SMOOTH-FINISHED LEATHER
Smooth-finished leathers have a polished surface that enhances the true beauty and quality of the leather. Only the most premium, top-quality hides are used to craft smooth-finished leathers. The result is a beautiful, classic-looking leather used to build more elegant styles, such as the Red Wing Heritage Beckman Collection. The polished look and feel of the smooth-finished leather requires more specialized care and attention to keep it maintained.
