My Top Five: Oxford Shoes

Patent Leather: Dieppa Restrepo

Patent leather is great because it never looks worn in and you don't have to worry about scratches. This light gray pair has such a perfect, sleek shape.

The Saddle Shoe: Steve Madden

I'm so excited about the resurfacing of this '50s throwback! All-one-tone versions, like this pair, are sleeker than traditional black-and-white ones.

The Original: Church's English Shoes

A men's-style shoe that is every bit as amazing as the version pour homme . Church's took their signature design and tweaked it just enough in all of the right places. And the craftsmanship is amazing!

No Laces: Anthropologie

I've been so into these ever since I saw a really stylish guy on the subway in John Varvatos oxfords sans laces. I'm forever a fan of the relaxed, effortless look.

High-Heeled: Nine West

These are such a great alternative to a pump. The laces add polish and the heel totally flatters your leg.
