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.
