Nothing says, “classic” like the traditional oxford lace-up.
They used to be the “everyday-ers” that would fit any outfit really. But back then, most outfits included slacks. Now a days, we have the luxury to dress up jeans, and nothing dresses up jeans and a button up combo like a pair of lived-in classic oxfords.
The shoe above sports a modern low profile sole with a pronounced heel that gives this shoe its iconic status.
Pair any black shoe with black—of course—or navy blue for starters. Once you get more confident, try any plethora of multi-colored chinos. The world is your canvas.
