Trending 1

April 15, 2011

I don't know exactly what you'd call these shoes but they're definitely trending like nobody's business.

I found plain black identical shoes in the thrift store some time back and only bought one pair which I now regret beyond words.

I've gone back every week since and have never found another similar pair since.

It is a heeled saddle shoe and I LOVE THEM ALL!

I think they'd all be considered oxfords of some sort, but I could be wrong.

I found an awesome pair at Nordstrom's Rack a couple weeks ago but the heel was really spindly and I almost broke my ankle just while trying them on. I need a pair with a thicker heel like these ones!

They look like saddle shoes with a heal. I used to have a black and white pair back in the day:)lol

Actually, I think you technically have several different types of shoes there. See Gail Carriger's informative explanation of what Oxfords are here:

We call them Oxfords or brogues here and I love every single pair you've listed. I only have one pair in black and need several more in a veritable rainbow of colour

we call the plain ones Oxfords but the other ones are more of a mix of an oxford and a saddle shoe. I have a black pair of oxfords and have seen some gorgeous black wedge style ones that I really want.

OMG! At last I've managed to be trendy! I bought a pair of shoes (in black) just like the brown lace ups (second from the bottom) but with a heel. Very 1940s in style. Just love them because you can wear them with almost anything.

Some of them are spectator style, the ones with the contrast on the heel and toe. Those vintage style shoes are all very fun. Not sure I could pull off the ones with laces. My ankles just aren't quite dainty enough for it.

Oh my, those yellow ones with white laces are fabulous! Where did you find them?

Love, love, love the last pair... I have some that are solid black. Current fav's in my closet!

I love these so much! My grandma, however, had to wear orthopedic oxford for the last decades of her life, and didn't like them much. So, for every pair of "practical" shoes I buy, I try to buy a pair of beautiful shoes too, in her memory. :) Some of these are both practical and beautiful, so I win either way!

we half mockingly, half lovingly call them shoe-boots
