The Downtown Dappers are a pair of shoes that are exactly what they say they are. Feel good and walk with a smug little spring in your step with a set of derby oxfords that look classy and don't break the bank. Made with vegan leather and smooth rubber roles, the Dappers are sleek with a slightly more pointed toe and speak of a subtle charm. Derby-style lacing is less formal than the classic oxford style, so you won't feel too strange if you wear these shoes every day. As a lower-cost option, they still look nice enough to wear to a special occasion like a wedding or a big job interview.

Our best-selling Downtown Dappers are the perfect introductory shoe for a handsomely stylish person who wants to start dipping their toes into the more masculine end of footwear but isn't ready to spend hundreds of dollars on shoes. They come in a striking steely blue, a handsome sandy brown, a classic jet black, an eye-catching sharkfin grey, and a warm, confident dark brown. With smooth rubber soles that will last longer than the high-formality leather soles of other oxfords, the Downtown Dapper line of formal shoes are a great first pair that will make you proud to step out into public.

Each pair of Downtown Dappers comes with a complementary tin of neutral shoe polish.

Beautiful shoes

I love my new shoes! Great build quality and they give me just a little bit more height!

Alexa Tarbona
Gorgeous but disappointing

I’ve only worn these shoes a handful of times and the vegan leather has torn and peeled in the creased areas of the shoe.

Hi Alexa,

According to our records, the shoes you ordered from us that you describe in this review were ordered about seven years ago, so we have no way to find out if they were connected to any kind of quality issues from a shipment batch that should have been caught by our quality assurance team before being sent to a customer, as we've long since stopped working with that fulfillment partner. If this is incorrect please let us know so we can make sure our current quality check processes are working the way they need to be!

Unfortunately because it appears that it has been seven years since you ordered these, we can't offer a total replacement for the pair, but this is still not the experience we want you to have had! To that end, keep an eye on your inbox as we'll be sending you a gift card as an apology, since that kind of damage should only be showing up with extensive wear, even if you have had them for as many years as our records suggest.

All the best,
The Tomboy Toes Team

Had to exchange them because I felt that a different color would fit my suit better and it was a super easy process! Size was accurate, color is great, and they are comfortable! I love the shoes! Don't have anything bad to say about them.

Love them

My old pair of Oxfords finally saw their last day, and these are a wonderful replacement! Comfortable right out of the box.

These shoes look great and the leather last for a long time. Though you’d need to buy extra inserts since they’re not very comfortable to walk in. I wish they’d have more arch support.
