Oxford shoes are growing in popularity, with the shoe type expected to continue to grow through 2025. These shoes are seen in the world’s largest companies and on Wall Street, where men and women want a comfortable, durable option for footwear.
The growth of the women’s Oxford shoes industry is going to be fueled by three main factors:
1. Professional and Casual Look
Oxford shoes are designed to be worn with a three-piece suit or can be seen on the feet of some of the top lawyers in the country. However, these shoes can also be worn casually. The style is versatile and offers a classic look that first originated in Ireland and Scotland before reaching North America in the 1800s.
The shoes come in an array of colors, but the traditional, high-end shoes are made with genuine leather and are far more durable.
2. Genuine Focus on Quality
The United States footwear market is estimated to be worth $80 billion, but a lot of the shoes are manufactured with sub-par quality materials. The women’s Oxfords from The Office of Angela Scott are created with a genuine focus on quality.
Leather, cork and offering a resoleable technology, these shoes can last a lifetime.
Soles are able to be replaced so that they offer a sustainable, rebuildable shoe that may cost more upfront, but last much longer than cheaper brands. When it comes to unparallel excellence, the Oxford shoe is one that stands above the rest.
Lifetime wear and comfort are just two of the main reasons why women across the world are choosing the women’s Oxford over the competition.
3. Sustainable Construction
The majority of shoes are simply glued together – even many high end brands. Since glued shoes break down much faster, they must be replaced regularly and ultimately end up in a landfill.
By producing shoes that prioritize craftsmanship and quality over trend and fast fashion, The Office of Angela Scott provides professional women with an investment piece. Designer Angela Scott begins by hand selecting the finest Italian leathers and textiles from a small group of suppliers in Italy. From there, the shoes are handcrafted at a family-owned and operated factory in Portugal that specializes in Goodyear Welt construction, the finest process in the industry.
The Goodyear welt construction technique was patented in 1871 by Mr. Charles Goodyear Jr. This method of stitching the soles to the uppers with a welt is durable, breathable, and inherently sustainable as it allows the shoe to be resoled over a lifetime. A Goodyear constructed oxford is a truly timeless choice for the office; not only will it last longer, it will never go out of style.
