Richelieu/Oxfords shoes

In English we call them Oxfords, in french Richelieu, and they are the shoes-of-the-moment for this spring. It seems quite right, after a winter with ankle boots all-over, that this spring we will be transitioning to the shorter version of shoes boots in Oxford style.


With high heels and open toes, zippers (like Louboutin's ones), contrasting stitches(Bottega Veneta), two tones (Miu Miu), precious materials - patent or brocade - like in D&G's shows or with laces for a more Victorian feel as Pedro Garcia did them, they look great with skirts and pants alike.

Bottega Veneta

Wear them with a jeans skirt for a contrasting look, or combine them with a pair of large, short pants (if you have the courage) for a very trendy, out of the ordinary outfit.


Pedro Garcia

Not sure at the beginning of how i feel about those shoes, i opted for a moderate price pair, from Zara, elegant gray patent ones, with very high heels, side zipper and peep toes, similar to Louboutin's ones pictured above.
