This $249 Plain Cap Toe Oxford is a Style Cheat Code

There’s a good chance you’re on your way back to the office in the next few months because with vaccination rates rising there’s a glimmer of hope for normality just around the corner. We’d hate for you to be looking anything but your best on your return to work. In the case of footwear, that means throwing out the mouldy, worn out, and distressed dress shoes that you’ve held onto for far too long.

It’s never been an easier decision either, let’s introduce you to the MYRQVIST Äppelviken Black Calf plain cap toe oxford – it’s a style cheat code.

What constitutes a style cheat code? Well, for one, it has to be timeless. That means nothing too fancy, with the only ‘flair’ coming by way of design, simplicity and use of materials. This oxford has all three in droves. With a features list that reads like something 4-5x the price.

Äppelviken Black Calf Features

  • Goodyear welted construction
  • Handcrafted in Portugal
  • Full-grain calf from the French tannery Du Puy
  • Leather board heel caps and cork filling

You should be familiar by now. We introduced our new favourite footwear brand MYRQVIST and their new Stenhammer loafer last month. And it turns out we’re just as in love with their new plain oxford as much as we were with the loafer. What starts as a striking value proposition, extends into something much more – some of the best quality footwear on the market. It’s no wonder they’re Swedens fastest growing footwear brand.

The outsole is Goodyear welted for durability, not only that but it means when the time comes, you can get them re-soled! You’d hate to put that beautifully worn in the exterior to waste now, wouldn’t you? Uppers are handcrafted in Portugal and made from full-grain calf leather from the French tannery Du Puy. Leatherboard heel caps round out the features, and you have the choice between leather and half rubbed soles (we recommend rubber for everyday use).

You can pick up a pair for yourself and generate a wealth of style when you return to the office via the link below. At the low price of US$249 with worldwide express delivery, free returns, and some of the best quality you’ll find on the market. This is what they call a style cheat code.
