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.

Confidence Boost in a Shoe

I am so happy I purchased these! Not only is the quality great, but I feel like now that I have these (since masculine dress shoes don’t really come in my size), I can finally dress how I feel suits me best. I am so grateful.

Absolutely perfect

I’ve tried American men’s shoes, Euro men’s shoes, menswear-ish women’s shoes, etc. All the men’s shoes look comically large and ugly on my tiny feet, and the women’s shoes just don’t quite… pass, you know? It’s been a tiny sad bother for me for ages. After finding out I actually /needed/ some men’s shoes for a show, I went ahead and ordered a size 36 of the Downtown Dappers, thinking I’d have time to return them if they turned out to not fit yet again. Wouldn’t you know it - not only have I finally found a menswear-style shoe that doesn’t look like a clown shoe on me, but the cushioned insoles make them incredibly comfortable! I’ll be able to wear these for hours onstage while doing all kinds of running around! It’s so wonderful to find a product that not only fills a need, but puts you at ease.


Great quality and just what I was needing
