Yarford has been our best-selling Goodyear welted wholecut for a number of years. A wholecut is the king of formal shoes. With one piece of smooth calf leather cut from the prime part of the calf hide, the upper is free from restrictive seams allowing it to mould more readily to your foot. The minimalist pattern is on a slightly chiseled toe featuring the OS toe medallion and is fully lined in calf leather. We’ve Goodyear welted the upper to a sturdy leather sole finished in our signature green.

I bought a pair of

I bought a pair of these shoes in brown and the comfort in that pair is so much better. These black shoes do not seem to 'walk' right. Leather is much stiffer and nowhere near as comfortable. Maybe a one off, look really smart though.

Shoe Review

The normal Yarford Black is better fitting than the Suede option, having said that it is of great quality, no complaints there!

I love OS shoes

Hilary N.

These are a very fine pair of shoes. Excellent quality and workmanship, they are true to size and a pleasure to wear. They were delivered on time and well packaged. The shoe bag is a nice addition. I would recommend them and will certainly buy from Oliver Sweeney in the future.
