So if you've read my review of Everlane's Modern Smoking Shoe, you know I wanted to love it but didn't. Well for Everlane's Modern Oxford, I didn't think I would like it but I actually loved it. It just goes to show that you can never really tell about something until you try it on.
I didn't expect to like Everlane's oxfords mostly because I'm a fan of the slip-on type of shoe (like Toms and M.Gemi's Felize Loafers). In fact the only shoes I have with laces are my running/gym shoes, until now that is. But I fell in love with these oxfords as soon as I laced them up and took my first couple of steps. First of all, these shoes are probably the second most comfortable shoe I've ever tried from Everlane (the first being their Street Sandals; but these are the most comfortable closed-toe shoes). The oxfords are hands down way more comfortable than their Modern Loafers or their Modern Point shoes. And that's because they widened the toe box area (which is consistently where my wide feet have issues).
The shoes seemed to have pretty good arch support and I would say the only minor irritation with this shoe is the stiff leather tongue at the top of the shoe that kept poking the top of my foot (but this will eventually go away when I break them in some more). Also I'm wearing these pedi socks to prevent any blisters or from the shoes from smelling (a note on these socks: I have a hard time finding no-show socks that stay on my foot but these are amazing--but I would advise not putting them in the dryer since they will shrink a little).
I also love love love the blush color. It's the perfect nude shoe to help those with shorter legs like me since it doesn't visually cut you off at the ankles. I styled it above with my favorite pair of wide-leg jeans from Frame (similar here), a Clare V shirt, and LV bag for my masculine look and with Grana's slip dress and a Gucci bag for my feminine look. I love that these shoes could pretty much polish off any outfit (probably even my usual uniform of cut-off shorts and a tee).
Oh and just a note on sizing, I ordered my usual Everlane shoe size of 8 (I usually wear a 7.5-8 in shoes) and they fit perfectly. Currently Everlane is out of most of the sizes in the blush oxfords but it looks like they'll be restocking them at the end of October. As usual this review is completely unsponsored, and you can find all my other (unsponsored) Everlane reviews here.
