If there’s one shoe revival that our shopping editors are most excited about this season, it could be the return of the Oxfords. While the roots of the bulky, co-worker style date back to 1800s Oxford, England (no surprise), this shoe has undergone a sizable makeover in recent decades – evolved from a ’90s must-have into a grunge aesthetic element of the first and last years re-emerged this season as the moody one, Wednesday style inspired by Addams of our gothic fashion dreams. The glossy shoe – defined by its exposed heel frame, closed laces and often blistering design – has been reimagined in various ways by designers and celebrities (hello, Kourtney). Kardashian!), which is why we’re convinced the style is now considered one of this year’s biggest shoe trends.
With this in mind, we went ahead and shopped for 10 timeless Oxford shoes that prove preppy style still exists and are well worth the investment (assuming you haven’t, of course). From the foundation Oxfords will take you winter wardrobe to new heights (literally) and comfortable Oxford shoes that you can wear over and over again, each with their own unique construction, color and even composition. it – don’t worry though, because there are a lot of of the skin variations included in the mix.
