"Love them both, but brogues are more mannish and therefore require a little more work from the rest of your outfit. If you don't have time for a little trial and error in the morning, I'd stick to oxfords. Those look good with everything!" - Alison Syrett Cleary, digital writer
"As much as I love the look of a classic men's wingtip, my feet are delicate little (OK, large) flowers. Whenever I wear any flat that's too structured and stiff, I'm typically in Blister City by noon. So I usually go for a softer jazz shoe or oxford, which has all the polish of a sturdy brogue minus the toe-chafing side effects. Plus, their slimmer silhouette makes them a more natural match for the flippy skirts and minidresses I favor." - Elana Fishman, senior digital editor
"I had a crush on a guy in junior high school that had a version of these shoes. Inspired by him, I bought a pair for myself (is that weird?). I've gone through a few pairs and still love them and wear them all the time." - Alexis Bryan Morgan, executive fashion director
"Oxfords have a special place in my heart because I lived there (Oxford, England, not Oxford, Mississippi) for a few months. That's a ridiculous reason to favor them, I know. My favorite ones for fall are from Freda Salvador. I love that they're convertible! Two shoes in one: excellent." - Eva Chen, editor-in-chief
