Cap Toe Oxfords vs. Wing Tip Shoes
Women are not the only ones who need fire shoes. To me a man's shoe is the finishing touch of his look and not every man can not pull off a good shoe. For you your preference might be a Cap Toe Oxford or Wing Tip. An on going rivalry in the world of men's shoes...which ever you decide there is wide range of styles, colors, materials, and prices that one can chose from to help accentuate that special suit or spruce up a causal outfit. But before we decide which style might be best let's have a short history lesson. There is a difference and it is important to understand that difference.

A Cap Toe Oxford is a style of laced shoe characterized by shoelace eyelet tabs that are stitched underneath the vamp, or better known as closed lacing. Wing Tips or full brogues are characterized by a pointed toe cap with extensions (wings) that run along both sides of the toe that ends near the ball of the foot.

Let's compare & contrast:
