If a busy day for you includes contractor planning meetings, investor face time, jobsite organization, and good old-fashioned hard labor, you know that the jump from jobsite-ready to boardroom-professional can be difficult. For just such a many-faceted worker DieHard makes their duty oxford shoe.
DieHard makes the shoe from full-grain leather that’s both durable and nice-looking. The shoes include an oil, water, and slip-resistant outsole, and while they’re not steel-toed, I can attest from personal experience that the leather toe is quite tough and stands up to moderate force from falling objects.
Oxford-styled shoes don’t have the traditional “up the ankle” design of standard work boots, but these do incorporate a split sole for comfort and support. Sears sells the pair in all standard sizes from 7-1/2 to 13 for $50, but you can often find ’em on sale for $35.
