Top Five: Oxfords a.k.a “Man Shoes”

Posted in Top Five, Trend Report: Top Picks by skapla7 on September 27, 2009

A cool new trend for you risk takers out there are oxford flats. I am truly obsessed with these Michael Jackson look-alikes. Definitely don’t be afraid to sport a pair of fun oxfords in the style of wedges or heels. Rafe New York makes an adorable pair of heels. For an affordable and feminine oxford check out BC Footwear Thunder Oxfords in yellow (my personal favorite).
