Talking about a pair of elegant boots made of leather is talk about the Balmoral boots for men, which have everything you need of a pair of dress shoes in the label of Oxford, including sophistication and a exquisite finish with brogue.
The origin of this model was back then in the XIX century, where the Queen Victoria had a pair of these boots made for the Prince Alberto. The challenge was to combine durability and water resistance with a line that was stylish enough to result as proper for the rides inside and outside the scotish castle of Balmoral. Given that the monarch was delighted with the result, the design was soon popularized to such an extent that it still survives properly adapted to current trends.
The Balmoral boots have a special characteristicas that count with six to nine eyelets and which are completely closed so that the tab is only visible on the top of the shank. This, coupled with that rise a few centimeters above the ankle, makes them ideal for winter.
They are low-heeled and rounded-toed, and their seams that divide the footwear into well-differentiated portions show a beautiful brogue that gives them a touch of distinction. This punching gives a lot of personality to this model and is visible in the toe, in the instep, in the reed and in the sewing around the heel.
Since they serve as substitutes for the Oxford shoe in the colder months, its use is standardized for formal occasions or requiring labeling. However, even if they are dress boots for suits, there are those who combine them with success in more casual looks especially if it is the model made in suede.
