So I have another pair of oxfords from Anthro from last year, and I love their look. But as soon as I take the tights away, their stiffness eats the back of my heels, and try as I might, that doesn't seem to break in. Plus, as much as I love the oxford look, I tend to have a harder time actually wearing them with my super girly dresses; they just don't always feel like the most appropriate option. I thought these might be perfect, as the lace cutouts made them super girly, and the lack of laces gave them extra fun. I discovered that my local store had both the pink and grey, so I went to try them. The pink color is very pretty- more mauve than bright- but not a color that I would wear all that often. The grey is an almost pearly, slightly shimmering grey (the same amount of shine as the ankle boots that I feel were the winter version of these shoes- and which I own in two colors- so the shine is present and pretty but not obnoxious). I chose the grey, and I absolutely love them. They are cute over dark tights, and will be all the more adorable in several months when spring comes to Boston. Moreover, they are soft. They will likely stretch a bit, and they may not hold their structure- that's my only concern- but I am not at all worried about them cutting into my feet. They might lack a little arch support, but most flats do, so I will stick some low inserts in them if I find it to be troublesome.
I found that they fit true to size, if not on the slightly, slightly small side, as I went with the larger of my 6.5-7 option, the 37, and was very happy with the fit.

Picked these up in the silver color. They have a little more of a metallic sheen than the pictures let on, but not overly shiny or anything. They fit great, which is definitely a plus. I have pretty narrow feet and I have a hard time fitting into shoes. They seem to have a bit of stretch to them though, so I wouldn't say stay away if you have wider feet...once you break them in they'll probably be fine. They look great with stockings or with bare feet for the warmer months. They are very well made, but there is zero traction on the bottom. I think once they get a little scuffed with wear it will be a little better, but for now I tread carefully. Great shoes! Might be getting these in another color as well!

Ordered these in silver, as such seemed a cheery color for transition from winter to springtime. Wanted these shoes for my early April sojourn to NYC, as cute, feminine, comfortable, flats for touring the city are always a must. Liked the metallic look of the silver oxfords, but couldn't be sure from the pic online just how "metallic" they were, and was thrilled to see when they arrived that were just slightly metallic, almost a translucent silver--perfect for casual day wear. LOVE these oxfords--the lacy cutouts are super feminine and are perfect with everything from ankle-length skinny jeans to the denim mini. They fit TTS and have this nifty elastic band inside that make these shoes so comfortable sans socks. Love the lightweight--yet quality--leather for warmer weather months. Great value for the price. Am so happy with these that I am going to order them in pink, too.
