The Shoes

Oxford

The most elegant of all styles,
Oxford is recognized by its closed lacing,
making it ideal for narrow feet with a low instep.

Also known as Balmorals, the laces are threaded through five pairs of eyelets and fasten up the shoe so perfectly that only the upper edge of the tongue can be seen. This lends itself to a sleeker, more elegant appearance that takes the look of your shoe up by a few notches and is the perfect finishing touch to a sharp tailored suit.

Archibald


Fullest girth with a
slightly pointed toe.
More room over the instep
lending a vintage look.

Eldridge


Broad, flat toe provides
a roomier forepart.
Ideal for the short
and wide foot.

Harvey


Slightly elongated toe and
fore for a slimmer look.
Ideal for the long
and narrow foot.

Townsend


Semi-round toe with
a roomier forepart.
Ideal for the short
and wide foot.

Wallace


Slightly elongated profile
with a square toe,
for a more
European look.

All Awl & Sundry shoes are made with a
full leather sole and feature blake construction.

Select your size and width individually for each foot.
The standard men’s width is D. E, EE, and EEE are progressively wider.
Now that’s a custom fit!

Awl & Sundry uses full grain leather for all their uppers.
It maintains its shine longer and is naturally porous
allowing your pair to breathe and providing a well-balanced temperature within.

Leathers are available in:
Calf Plain  /  Calf Grain  /  Suede

Derby

The Derby offers pure comfort to shoe-lovers who have a wide foot or an unusually high instep.
It is recognized by its open lacing, which means that it is easier to slip into this shoe than an Oxford,
and the distance between the two quarters is easier to adjust.

Also known as “Bluchers” after the Prussian field marshal Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, Duke of Wahlstady, joined forces with Wellington to defeat Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. He ordered laced shoes of this type to be made for his soldiers.

The Founder

Nikunj Marvania

Born in Mumbai, India, Nikunj moved to the United States at the age of seventeen to pursue college. After studying finance, he worked on Wall Street in sales and trading.

In addition to shoes, Nikunj is equally passionate about spirituality and meditation. He loves reading in his free time and enjoys spending time in nature

The Hand-Made Process

How are Awl & Sundry shoes made?
All of Awl & Sundry’s shoes are meticulously handcrafted by seasoned craftsmen. Each shoe goes through more than 200 different steps from clicking, sewing, hand skiving, hand drafting, toe lasting and many more.

What is the difference between Oxford and Debry
The Oxford: The Oxford, also known as Balmorals, is to be recognized by its closed lacing. The laces are threaded through five pairs of eyelets and fasten up the shoe so perfectly that only the upper edge of the tongue can be seen. This lends itself to a sleeker, more elegant appearance that takes the look of your shoe up by a few notches and is the perfect finishing touch to a sharp tailored suit. This type of shoe looks particularly good on narrow feet with a low instep.

The Derby: The Derby is characterized by open lacing. It also known as “Bluchers” after the Prussian field marshal Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher, Duke of Wahlstady (1742 – 1819), who joined forces with Wellington to defeat Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 and ordered laced shoes of this type to be made for his soldiers. The Derby offers pure comfort to shoe-lovers who have a wide foot or an unusually high instep. The open lacing mean that it is easier to slip into this shoe than an Oxford, and the distance between the two quarters is easier to adjust.

What is a shoe last?
A shoe last is a wooden mold that gives the shoe its shape. See the informational drop-down above any product designer fore more information.

What kind of leather do you use?
Awl & Sundry employs full grain leather for all their uppers; it maintains its shine longer and is naturally porous allowing your pair to breathe and providing a well-balanced temperature within.
