A whole-cut shoe is defined as a shoe that uses a single piece of leather for the upper. Most commonly they are made as low-cut shoes, but there are high-end makers who craft Whole-Cut Chukkas and Chelsea as well. They’re available ready-to-wear or bespoke and in a wide variety of colors and materials, and are generally more expensive than an oxford that’s otherwise the same.Technically, a Whole-Cut is a style of Oxford because it utilizes a closed-throat lacing system. Basically, they’re oxfords made from one piece of leather. It’s possible to find Whole-Cut shoes with broguing details and other decoration, though one could make the argument that this defeats the purpose of a Whole-Cut, whose lines are supposed to be ultra-clean and sleek.
