I can’t bring myself to put on another pair of ballerinas. Don’t get me wrong, I love them! But I’m just super into wearing a more modern, boyish oxford. But searching for the right one is a painstaking process! With an oxford/brogue, I think you have to have some authenticity – something that feels precisely true to a masculine tradition. Toe (how rounded? should it turn upwards? etc.), heel (stacked? flat? narrow? wide? etc.), fabric (stiff? washed and soft? etc.), and detail (laces? no laces? studding? grommeting? tooling? etc) are all factors in finding the perfect flat oxford that can be all too overwhelming. But here, I’ve found some pretty amazing options at all sorts of price-ranges that make it SUPER hard to choose. Take a peek and tell me if you think any of them are you!?!
