Estée, in black, was expertly handcrafted from a crisp pebble grain Spanish leather that will mould to your foot as you wear her. She is a solid black menswear style oxford with a round toe and perforated brogue detailing. Differentiating her from a traditional shoe, she has a chunky 3 tiered leather outsole (or welt), adding a little more oomph and drama. The heel is half rubber, making it easy to replace by a cobbler when it gets worn down from use.
Oxfords can be distinguished from other types of shoes by their lacing, the facing and quarter sections of the shoe anatomy are stitched underneath the vamp of the shoe. This makes the shoe less flexible but it looks damn good and was designed as a foolproof formal shoe.
A perfect black oxford should be the cornerstone of your wardrobe. If you’re getting ready for a wedding or your next job interview, this should be the shoe you reach for. Even though the Oxford shoe was inspired by formal-wear, you shouldn't be deterred from wearing Estée with any outfit your desire, from mini-skirts and shorts to the perfect dress or suit. Just like the forward thinking woman these shoes were named for, you'll never be basic.

To preserve the beauty of your Hoyden shoes we recommend using a shoe horn to put on your shoes. Don't wiggle your foot around until it goes in, that's a sure way to ruin the structure of your shoe. When not wearing your Hoyden shoes, it is best to maintain the structure of your shoe with a shoe-tree.
Clean away dirt promptly using a non abrasive damp cloth, allow to dry away from heat or cold temperatures. Use a leather cleaner for small scuffs, allow to dry fully then apply a shoe cream to maintain and preserve the beauty of your shoes.
If you take care of your girl, she’ll take care of you!
