Oak Street Bootmakers – Navy Trail Oxfords – 3 Months In

Well, I think it’s time for some pictures of these beauties. These have rarely left my feet since the day I got them, and there’s a reason for that. I don’t think there is much else to say, besides the fact they’re still going strong and only look better the more worn in they get. I think it’s the way I walk, but I’ve been absolutely destroying this Vibram soles – other than that, they look brand new minus a few scuffs & scratches. I plan to take them to the cobbler next week and have the scuffs dyed with navy dye, but I wanted to take some shots of them beforehand.

    those are some nice socks too! where are they from?

  2. Great pair of shoes! I’ve been lusting for the brown trail oxford for a while now! After reading through all the posts on your blog I discovered you live in Tampa. I’m based in St. Pete. Glad so see someone with a similar style sensibility in the area. Cheers!

  3. These look great! I needed one more review/post about these Oakstreet Oxfords, and I have found the right one. Still deciding on the navy and brown ones though.

    And actually, I lived in Tampa (Carrollwood area) and in St. Pete as well. Cheers.

  4. Hey! I’m in Tampa right now for a day off. I should of hit you up sooner but work has been crazy for me.

  5. Will do! I’ll be back in January for work. Shoot me an email!

    3 months? Have you actually done anything in them or did you take a 3 month long taxi ride to a grass patch to take pretentious pictures of those uggers

    They seemed to have retained their deep blue color. How have you managed that? I had a pair (not Oak Street) of blue leather deck shoes that faded and are no longer blue thanks to dust and washing, probably from walking on trails and along the lake…

    • Robert,

      Probably has to do with the type of leather these are crafted with, its Horween Chromexcel – pretty much the best of the best. Still to this day, they look amazing. I’ve buffed the scuffs out of them with a navy polish and they look pretty much brand new again.

    I have to confess: I still haven’t tried nor seen any of these moccasins though they are available at Frenchtrotters in Paris. Still, they definitely look like the ultimate pair of US handcrafted “winter moccasin” to have. Great outfit without socks for sure. But not sure it fits with the spirit of the brand though…
