The Oxford Dictionary

Fact: I love oxfords. Long after the trend subsides and oxfords revert back to feet of old men and librarians, I will still be wearing them. Words can't describe how much I love them. When the trend first started booming it was very hard to find an affordable pair. Now, oxfords are popping up all over the place at a number of retailers in a number of price ranges. Here are some oxfords that are a break from the norm, straight from my wish list (I wish to own all of them), all for under $50!
