The 9431 Williston Oxford is made with Black Featherstone leather from our S.B. Foot Tannery in Red Wing, Minnesota. After construction, the boot is finished at Plant 2 to add a distinctive high luster. A three-quarter Goodyear welt and Puritan triple-stitch construction provide years of durability, and a premium Gro-Cord outsole adds a work-inspired foundation for reliable traction across surfaces.

Classics for lifeI bought these a couple days before a week long convention in Las Vegas. They are a full size smaller than my "regular" shoes, but still 1/2 size larger than my Iron Rangers. They are taking a bit longer to break-in than my Iron Rangers. The week of being in them 12+ hours a day gave me bruises on the top of my foot, but that was to be expected. The second week in at a desk and they are almost fully broken in. A couple of tight spots on the top to work themselves through. Cedar shoe trees on order to keep wrinkling to a minimum. I love them and lots of compliments. I am going to look at the teak 6" boots today to see if they will work nicely with a grey suit. Wish there were more colors, but that may come in time. These will hopefully be the last pair of black dress shoes I need to buy to finish my career (I have 25 years to go!)
I love old quality crafted items. Red Wing Heritage footwear goes great with my automatic watches, as well as my Vermilyea Pelle briefcase. With proper maintenance, these items will last me, and my children and future grandchildren, a lifetime.
