Listen, the news is tough, and we all need moments of escape from the horror to recuperate and prepare for the next onslaught, and I can talk about shoes all the livelong day, so welcome to the OMG SHOEZ thread.

Got a favorite pair of shoes you want to share? Bought a new pair about which you're super excited? Have a recommendation to make, or want to caution us away from a purchase you regret? Want to solicit suggestions for a specific event, a foot issue, an elusive something for which you've been hunting? Having trouble finding something particular on a budget? Have at it in comments!

I love these oxfords so much. I got them ages ago at ModCloth (Reading Room Romance Oxford Flat), and I wear them all the time. I was actually surprised when I looked back through the OMG SHOEZ threads to discover I'd never featured them.

They're my favorite kind of shoe: Comfy and versatile. I can easily dress them up with slacks or a skirt and blouse, or wear them casually with a t-shirt and jeans, or match them with something in between, like a nice top and jacket or cardigan paired with jeans.

If you're looking to diversify your shoe line-up, I highly recommend snagging a pair of oxfords if you don't already have one. In my experience, the brown-and-navy combo is extremely wearable with tons of stuff.

So, that's what up with me! What's up with you?
