The Hathorn Oxford are White’s slightly lighter weight offering. They are still an all leather construction through to the leather shank, same great support but constructed with clamp down construction instead of stitch down and the rough out leather is slightly lighter in weight (same quality and feels pretty hefty) for more of a dress shoe feel.
Every pair of White’s work boots are individually hand crafted from start to finish and are made to withstand the toughest of environments.
Construction: All leather, no synthetic materials or fillers are used. Stitch-down construction for strength, comfort and ability to resole. Stitched throughout with heavy gauge waxed thread. Flexible oak tanned leather mid soles, optional Vibram outer soles, strong all-leather shank custom shaped to fit your foot and the finest leather uppers that will only get better with age makes White’s a real work horse of a boot.

The White’s Hathorn Oxfords fit true to UK sizing certainly in length. They do feel very snug and stiff to begin with due to the 2021 sole and leather. Quite a slim fitting last but will give a bit in time. For reference the 8E in this shoe fits similar to:
-Red Wing US 8.5 (UK7.5)
-Viberg 7.5-8 (in a few of their lasts)
-Alden Barrie 7.5-8 D
– John Lofgren 8
