Guys, If You Can Only Buy One Pair Of Oxford Wingtips...

...Yeah, make it these little numbers by Johnston & Murphy. See, we all need a pair of these babies kicking around somewhere in our wardrobes — a shoe with enough detail that it draws a few eyes, but isn't fuzzy or frilly. This guy — The McPherson by name — is a more relaxed take on the classic oxford wingtip thanks to its camel suede coloring and texture. It's just the sort of thing that can bridge a look from one scenario to the next — dressing up, say, shorts without socks, or dressing down a full suit. Oh, and as opposed to so many of its ilk, this model doesn't come with a hard leather sole, meaning unlike those poor schlubs down on Wall Street, you can actually walk a few blocks without having to call a car service. Of course, no one's saying you have to buy just one pair of wingtips...they also come in off-white suede and tan Italian calfskin. To see the new kicks in action, check out J&M's doc-style video, which features a fresh update on the heritage brand, with real-life NYC models wearing 'em in, including professional surfer/perennial stud Johnny Knapp and animated TV creator Robert Scull. Needless to say, we're already sold.
Johnston & Murphy McPherson wingtips, $175, available at Johnston & Murphy, 520 Madison Avenue (between 53rd and 54th streets); 212-527-2342.
