Review of Navy Trail Oxfords:
simplethreads.wordpress.com/2010/09/10/oak-street-boot-makers-navy-trail-oxford/

Legacy
The son of a cobbler, Oak Street Bootmakers founder and designer George Vlagos apprenticed at his father’s shop where he learned the craft of shoemaking from an early age. Today, George seeks to preserve the heritage of fine shoemaking through thoughtfully designed and attentively crafted shoes.

Craftsmanship
All Oak Street shoes and boots are handcrafted in the USA by shoemakers with over 20 years of experience. The highest standards of production are employed to yield shoes that are as durable as they are comfortable. Each pair makes use of replaceable outsoles, a feature normally reserved for formal footwear, to ensure a lifetime of wear.

Quality
Oak Street shoes and boots are constructed from renowned Horween Chromexcel leather. Chromexcel undergoes 89 separate processes taking 28 days and utilizing all five floors of the Horween facility in Chicago. Over the past 100 years very little has changed in the formula. Food-grade beef tallow, cosmetic-grade beeswax, marine oil, chrome salts, tree bark extracts and naturally occurring pigments are combined. The mixture is then applied using heat, steam pressure, the hands of craftsman and time. This ultimately yields the soft, supple and durable leather that is used for your shoes or boots.

Guys,

Oakstreet just released their Brown Trail Oxfords! They're still being produced, but you can reserve a pair. I should have detailed pictures up soon enough! Get stoked!

trail oxfords are pretty ill...vibram sole sets it apart from the pack, just wish they made something a little more ankle support like a chukka boot.

they need to come out with actual boots. These are amazing but a tad too dressy for average look of mine.

I was looking into RW's, but scratch those since they're now taking preorder's on their boots. Navy ftw.

next big purchase for me is between these trail oxfords or some quoddy oxfords. undecisive at the moment but leaning toward these a bit more.

They are, I have the exact same pair as lawlercon and can vouch for the quality of these shoes. They're also very comfortable. You can find more info on them over at the styleforum thread of Oak Street. I compared them to sperrys in that thread if you're confused on sizing, feel free to ask questions (I haven't been here in 4 years, so it's best to ask on styleforum). Unfortunately, hypebeast has this rule where you can't post links without 25+ posts, so you'll have to google the link.
