The Search for the Perfect Modern Wingtip: Rockport Hillandale – $110.00
It’s no secret that shoes can make or break your look. Wear a bad pair and everything else will be nullified, no matter how well put together the rest happens to be. It’s also no secret that a combination of classic details on a modern shape can lead to stylistic victory. It’s the reason why the Mercedes SLS, the pockets square, and sleek modern laceups with wingtip details have garnered such a fan-base.
For the wingtips to qualify for this search, they’ve got to be sleek in silhouette and not too clunky in the toe. First up, The Rockport Hillandale Oxford.
- Wingtip stitching but perforations limited to the toe
- Closed lacing keeps the shape clean
- Great gentle chisel toe
- Available in wide widths
- adiPRENE cushioning in the heel
- A little spendy at $110. But you do get free overnight shipping from Endless
- That jagged heel. Pretty distracting.
- All rubber sole.
A terrific looking shoe from above. But if that jagged heel is extremely noticeable, that could be a deal breaker for some. A great option for the 2Eers and a good option for fellas with a normal width foot. Put a leather sole on the bottom and it’s a steal.
