Ted Baker Fually Oxford Review
Ted Baker's most significant focus on anything he produces is making sure that it is made with outstanding quality; he does not set for anything less than the best when it comes to this. He started his company with the production of phenomenal men's shirts and has expanded to other products, including footwear, from there. Oddly enough, Mr. Baker's company is the only international designer label that does not have an advertising campaign. His products sell strictly by word of mouth. That has to say something about how great his products are. If his customers are happy, they spread the word and business booms.
The Fually Oxford's are one of Ted's great quality shoes that he produces. They have a fantastic look that will fit in with most formal settings. They are going to look phenomenal with your slacks and button up as well as fit in perfectly with your suit and tie. Whatever the event is that you are attending, you can be assured that you will look your best wearing these dress shoes. They might seem like they are a bit expensive at first, but do not let the price tag fool you, they are actually going to save you a decent amount of cash in the long run. They have a fantastic lifespan, and if they are taken care of correctly, they can last a lifetime, meaning that you will not have to fork over the money to buy a new pair. Overall, they are a great product, offering durability, style, and yes, comfort. The cushioned footbed gives you a fantastic underfoot experience that your feet will thank you for time and time again. Any gentleman would be satisfied with the Ted Baker Fually Oxford's as part of their shoe closet.

The combination of the rubber in the leather on the out Soul does not make for a great pair when it comes to the traction of your shoes. You have a decent amount of traction, but probably not what you would hope for if you were going to be out and encountering any kind of slick surfaces. These are more of a formal shoe, and as such, you shouldn't be facing a lot of places where this is going to become an issue, but just keep in mind that you should use caution as these are not going to provide you with excellent traction.
The good news for consumers looking to purchase these, they are running true to size so you should have an easier time when deciding what you should get. The expectation to this is that if you are planning on adding an insole to them, you are going to want to jump up about a half size to ensure you have enough from for the insert and your foot comfortably.
When it comes to arch support, these can offer a moderate amount thanks to the padded footbed. There is not a whole lot of cushioning located there so if you have slightly high arches, then these might not be the right option for you. Yes, you can always choose to add an insole to them, but if you decide to go that route make sure you order your size accordingly, to make room for them.
