Shoe trends are fickle. Of course, you want to be adorable and on-point (read: floral Birkenstocks are back). Then again, you also want to be cautious and see if a look is in it for the long haul (countdown to floral Birkenstocks being shunned again).
Well, it?s safe to say that schoolgirl-chic oxfords aren?t going anywhere. And Meandher is worthy of the long-term investment.
Previously a menswear-only line of brogues, the Aussie brand just landed in NYC with some to-die-for lady styles. And these puppies are about to blow up.
Choose from classic wing-tips (in colors like pinky red and liquid silver, from $336) and sleeker three-lace shapes (mmm...leopard, $340) and pair with everything from ankle-skimming skinnies to flirty floral dresses (soon to be worn sans tights).
So what?s the difference between these and all the other oxfords lining the shelves at Zara and Topshop? Comfort and durability. Meandher?s shoes are handmade, the old-school way, in Italy and Portugal, using quality leathers, a padded foot bed and a sturdy rubber heel.
All those ?holy crap, it?s finally spring? strolls officially have a new go-to shoe.
