Fall is coming, whether we like it or not. I tend to have a hard time with fall shoes. Summer is so easy and breezy with its flip flops, sandals, and flats. Once the cooler weather rolls around, though, you’re faced with a challenge–what do you put on your feet? When you live in a city, this challenge is compounded by the simple fact that you can’t traipse around in heels all day because you’ll kill yourself running for the subway or darting across traffic.
I have been jonesing for a pair of Oxfords since last fall, and I though I know I said I was going to challenge myself to only buy second-hand for the next year (I might start out with six months and see how that goes though), I am tempted to buy myself a pair for the fall, as a kind of “welcome to a new city” gift. Here are a few pairs that I like. Of course, the Fryes are my favorites. Which ones do you like?
