I saw this image and was instantly smitten. I love the classic oxford detailing paired with the chunkier sole. I'm trying to be frugal so I don't want to pay a fortune for them, ideally. If I could find these exact ones, I might cave to a higher price tag but for a stand-in I'm looking at $100 or less.
Except I have no idea who makes them or if they are for men or women. I'd never fit into a men's size but trust me, I searched. Every site I could think of and even a Google image search. Heck, I searched the kids' departments too. I didn't find the pair above, but I did come up with a few options.
1. Crown Vintage Jazzy Oxford flat at DSW.com - $39.95
They're not bad but they don't look bright white and they do seem more jazz shoe than oxford.
2. Comme des Garcons oxfords on YOOX.com - $365
Oh, I love these. They're not wingtip but their simplicity is stunning. The shape is perfect. If these came in gold they would be my dream oxford. But the price tag is putting me off for the white pair I'm settling for.
These are great as well. What I love is the whimsical nature of the wingtip design. Instead of the traditional pattern, the perforations are in fleur-de-lys/butterfly/floral scroll. So charming. The toe is a bit more pointed than I want and they are also a bit more than I want to spend... but I'm tempted.
4. Steve Madden Miltie on SteveMadden.com - $69.95
These are pretty cute and very close to my inspiration shoe. They don't have the cool sole but they do have the fun kiltie detail and the price is well in range.
Lots of options, with some compromises. Which ones would you get?
