Women's oxford shoes are currently trending in the fashion world, but this shoe trend is hardly new. Borrowed from the world of men's footwear, women's oxfords have been popular since the 1920's, and enjoyed a particular heyday in the 1940's-1950's. The classic women's oxford most closely resembles its menswear cousin, the wingtip. Sleek leather, neutral in color, and has a low heel. These shoes were born to be worn with a modern, business-minded pant suit; but are still feminine enough to distinguish yourself from "one of the guys".
