With the endless variety of shoes churning their way onto the shelves of your favorite department stores, whether they zip up, velcro or tie themselves, there is one classic style, named for one of the world's oldest and most esteemed universities, that never seems to go away. I'm talking of course about the oxford. As versatile a shoe as any, oxfords look just as good with a rolled up pair of jeans on a Saturday morning as they do with a freshly-cleaned power suit. When I'm looking for a pair I aim for simple detailing and a clean, contoured design, like these cap-toes from Rockport. Wearable year round, this brown colorway goes with everything, and with Adidas Adiprene technology under foot, they offer a rare comfort that doesn't sacrifice style. Team them up with dark denim, a gray overcoat and tie for a look that's business casual at its most intelligent.
