The Diplomat made from Last 173, is a classic Oxford lace-up with full brogueing. The shoe was constructed with the world-renowned Goodyear method, ensuring a durability that is as good as its design.
A Church’s staple since 1945, the Diplomat offers the formality of a classic oxford with a decorative half-brogue finish. Attributing its namesake to the ambassadors and politicians who historically wore it abroad, the timeless Diplomat is crafted on the 173 last and boasts a motif to the toe cap and typical brogueing and gimping to the facings and quarter. A natural finish is achieved using waxes, applied by hand, to gradually build up shading and enhance the innate beauty of the Nevada leather.
