John Lobb (venerable bespoke shoemaker) and Sir Paul Smith went together to create this punched cap toe Oxford with a medallion in four very interesting colours, rather the three pairs are very unusual, whilst the brownish is more or less expected. The first two are rather intriguing, the first a purple classic Oxford, second a blueish, third a brown (nothing that surprising or unexpected and the last a greenish shoe. A closer look at the colours all seem to be very sober and will raise appreciation and admiration rather than a faux pas in very conservative circles. I think they are very personalised in some form, they have that bit of splash and a teaspoon of dash added to make statement, a strong statement without being vulgar. Lovely colours. I could have all four.
