The 'Oxford' shoe

All the hip and happening Oxford Freshers in the early 1800s owned a pair of ‘Oxonian’ boots, 
(a pair of half-boots with side slits). However, like most students they were experimental with their fashion and soon tired of these knee and ankle-high styles. Their solution - Turn them into shoes! To begin, the side slit evolved into a side lace and eventually moved from the side of the shoe to the instep giving birth to what is now famously known as the ‘Oxford.

You too can follow in their footsteps - the 'Oxford' has had a huge come back! Take a cue from Selma Blair, Taylor Swift and Sienna Miller by pairing your Oxfords with everything from above knee dresses and skirts to skinny stovepipes and boyfriend jeans
