4 Horsemen Supplies teams up once again with British Columbia’s Viberg for another solid offering. This time, they’ve opted for a Saddle Oxford based on Viberg’s 145 Oxford. The two-tone upper and hand perforated quarters really set this one apart with the vamp and counter finished in Ice Mocha Chrome Excel, and the quarters in Vintage Tan.
Another fine offering from Mr. McNairy and this time it’s his iconic Red Brick-soled shoes in a white/navy saddle. The navy suede brogue detailing works well with the white nubuck upper, all finished off with Good Year Welt, white laces, eyelets and contrast stitching.

Alden of New England has teamed up with Blackbird once again to deliver another fine shoe, this time the Leschi Picnic saddle shoe. It features contrasting suede and smooth calf leathers in snuff suede and black, topped off with fine detailing such as brass eyelets and a classic saddle shoe shape. Each shoe is hand made and takes 6 weeks to produce, with supply being extremely limited.
We got a chance to check out Mark Mcnairy‘s S/S ’11 New Amsterdam collection a few months back and right there and then, we knew this shoe was going to be one of our favorites. The derby shoe features a navy suede on navy suede finish with saddle details. The red brick sole from seasons past has been swapped out for a white one, with white eyelets and laces to match.

Just because Common Projects is known for their impeccable lineup of sneakers doesn’t mean they can’t delve into some other types of footwear. Their Oxford collection for Fall 2010 is pretty solid, with a few pairs that are sure to turn heads. Hypebeast turns us to three styles which include a wingtip, saddle shoe and a plaintoe for good measures.
Look for these at select retailers worldwide.

Another fine collaboration between Alden and Seattle-based Blackbird has released, with this one paying homage to Frank Osgood, one of Seattle’s most well-known historical figures. Notable accomplishments included his horse drawn and electrical streetcars, and his efforts to make Seattle a more modernized city and enhanced its street culture in the process.
The Hayburner comes in a #8 burgundy cordovan finish while the Leschi Picnic saddle is finished in black calf and detailed with navy blue suede. Both are fully lined with leather and feature a high quality Goodyear single welt construction.
