The rich, reddish hue known as oxblood has long been attached to English brogues or prepster penny loafers—often attributed to the cordovan equine leather from which they're crafted. But it seems the classic color is enjoying a resurgence in the weekend wear department. Designers from Rag & Bone and Tim Little to sneaker standbys like Converse and Tretorn have introduced low profile lace-up sneakers in the rusty brown shade.
