The Williston Oxford sets the standard of what an oxford can be. Premium leather and precision construction breathe new life into a timeless silhouette. The Williston Oxford spares no detail, and the result is a shoe as fine as any.

Sucks to writeI've been an avid, and very very vocal supporter of red wings for a very long time. When I got a new job, and I knew I needed a nice, dependable pair of shoes, I didn't even hesitate when I found out these existed.
I couldn't even get the internationally, I had to pay an exorbitant amount of shipping to pick these up from Canada (being in Australia).
They fit great, they seem sturdy and I was really looking forward to breaking them in. But.
I'd expected FAR greater quality control for this price. The eyelets on the right shoe are misaligned, resulting in the shoe literally twisting around my foot with every step because of the difference.
Honestly, I'm not even sure what to think now. I thought Red Wings was some shining beacon of craftsmanship, but this is a bad joke.
And what sucks is now it's probably too late to even return them, because the issue only became evident as it began to break in. It makes me disappointed, and sad, and almost like I've lost a friend.

AMAZING SHOESThese shoes are incredible!!! I have only been wearing them for a month and WOW! I love the shoes. Comfortable, Look Great and have provided tremendous relief with some of the challenges I have had with my right leg from wearing cheaper poorly designed shoes in the past.

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.
