William Black by Bourgeois Boheme

Styling Notes:

These streamlined and elegant Oxfords with unique asymmetrical design elements are classics with a twist.  The William is perfect for work or "dress-up" occasions.

Bobo's British roots show in every BoBo design. Beyond the doors of their London studio, they are surrounded by inspiration, from street style to vintage fashion, the natural world to the art world, cobbled streets to sprawling parks. Their quintessentially British perspective is at the heart of their truly original, unmistakably BoBo designs.

The Production Line:

Skilled artisans handmake each pair of shoes using traditional techniques. First, the ‘upper’ sections of each shoe are cut and stitched together and any linings and other design details added, creating a distinctive shoe shape for the first time. The upper is then moulded into the shape of the shoe using a specially made ‘last’. Next up, the insole goes on and the shoe is attached to the sole using non animal-based glue. The finished shoe is polished, checked and placed in our beautiful BoBo box, ready for its journey.

Please note: Because Bourgeois Boheme shoes ship direct from London, a $15 shipping fee is applied to this order.
