The Classic Adelaide

The Classic Adelaide


I what I love about the adelaide is that in the grand scheme of shoe designs, it is relatively new for being such a classic look. I am quite sure that it did not come around until the 70’s. In reality that last comment is just speculation but I don’t really recall ever seeing archival that were , not at least the really old ones. Yet it has the feel of being around since the dawn of time. I personally prefer an adelaide oxford to a straight classic oxford. I feel that the pattern allows for so much more to be done with the shoe, in terms of two tones and what not. Overall I just feel it looks smarter i.e. not too boring.

With that, I just wanted to share this beautiful adelaide oxford by in their ever stunning color called Nightshade, found at Skoaktiebolaget. (where the pictures are also from)

Feast your eyes and enjoy!
