What Do You Make Of The Oxford Sandal?

Last fall, we had a full-on fashion love affair with oxford shoes. So schoolboy-ish. So versatile. So comfy. Lately, the oxfords have gone into hibernation, and strappy sandals have taken their place. We’ve noticed, however, that a few retailers are still pushing oxfords this season, updating them for summer in a slightly sandal-ized version with cutouts along the sides.

What do you think of these? A silly way to make a trend work in warmer weather? Or a genius solution to missing your preppy kicks? (Honestly, we think they look a little weird … but maybe with the right styling and outfit?) [Urban Outfitters]
