I will start out by noting, that yes... I am quite aware of the longevity of the oxford (or brogue or tuxedo shoes or menswear or whatever you may call them) trend. They've been around for quite a while now (see the 2009 WhoWhatWear newsletter below), but their versatility and wonderful-ness is still amazing me on a nearly-daily basis. I bought these shoes at a local discount, designer-ish shoe store. My mom found them first, and suggested that I try them. I was a teensy bit skeptical at first, but I fell in love the moment I tried them on. They're made by Boutique 9... And with a bit of Googling, I discovered that's a division of Nine West and that these shoes are entitled "Brazen". That being said, I feel pretty "bold" and "shameless" when I wear them. And I'm pretty confident that I'll be wearing them for quite a while.
These are the oxfords that I already own. If you've spent any time at all rifling through my outfit posts, you have probably seen your fair share of these beauties. They go with a myriad of outfit choices... However, I'm quite partial to scrunchy, gray socks (as shown below).
