Eleven Updated Oxfords to Put Some Spring in Your Step

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Spring. Has. Sprung. But you know this time of year can be a fickle beast with spells of rain and temps that span 30 degrees in a day. You're ready to say bye-bye to boots, but not quite yet saluting sandals. Enter the oxford—or brogue, or derby, or whatever you want to call the boyish lace-ups that are definitely shoes and not sneakers. With slouchy boyfriend jeans or a spring dress, they offer enough edge—and foot protection!—to get you between seasonal extremes.

This season's interpretations include leg-flattering nude leather options, like Alexander Wang's crocodile-embossed version, and lots of plays on metallic, including Cheap Monday's mirrored rendition. Click through our gallery for a take on the shoe for every style, from glam glittery to quirky polka dot hole-punched to hippie woven.
