The Lo-Fi Trench Oxford, a collaboration between ButterScotch and Oak Street Bootmakers.
Made from Horween's Smooth Black Chromexcel for 1 part dress and 1 part durability. We opted for the smooth black Chromexcel because it is a leather that looks great in any setting. Chromexcel is characterized by a rich pull-up in full aniline, hand-rubbed finish, superior comfort, and durability. Chromexcel was made famous by its patina—the unique character of each hide which comes to life with wear.
With the Lo-Fi i wanted something classic yet modern and since this is our first ever oxford we wanted something we are familiar with at the same time.
Cue the Black wedge Vibram Christy sole, something we have used countless times in the past but now on a low ankle oxford. All day comfort with a touch of dressy. I remember days of my childhood going to the record store down the street and seeing the shop keeper in wide wale cords wearing a pair of oxfords and to this day i still remember how cool they looked. The Lo-Fi is a representation of a true style that never goes out of style like the oxford with a modern monochromatic twist and almost workwear inspiration.
The Lo-Fi is good year welted so it can be re-crafted when its time for a new sole and features a 360 storm welt that is stained a deep rich espresso brown to give it a slight contrast between the smooth upper leather and black wedge sole. On the upper the Lo-Fi features black tonal stitching and 5 matte black eyelets.
Each pair ships with one flat black waxed lace and one black rolled leather lace. The Lo-Fi is created from the Elston last Developed to embody the character of Chicago, the Elston last is engineered specifically for Everyday Boots, providing exceptional all-day comfort for nearly all foot types with a generous toe box.
