As much as I love oxfords and have been pining for a good pair for over a year, I haven’t been able to find a pair that looked good on my big feet and were comfortable enough to wear for all the walking I do. But last week I decided that this spring would be my lucky month and walked into my favorite (yet unfortunately named) cheap shoe store in Manhattan to find the most perfect, affordable pair on the planet. Just sitting there, calling out to me. They’re super comfortable, but I bought them slightly bigger and put insoles inside just to be on the comfort safe side. Highly recommended, and super cheap – but not cheap looking. I have to stop myself from wearing them every day.
UPDATE: apparently they sold out after I posted them, so I updated the link with a store that has them in stock. They’re the “holland” by Chelsea Crew. That’s probably an important bit of information in an important recommendation, huh? Also, I had no idea they were not leather until seeing this website! Very convincing fake leather.
