Stiletto, spiked, stacked, or platform, your heel collection (beloved as it is) can really do a number on your tootsies — especially during party season. So, if you're at the point where your eyebrow starts twitching and your toes begin to curl every time you try to slip on another pair of sky-highs, it's time to stop and refocus your attention on this year's comfiest party shoe: the oxford.
That's right, we said party shoe. No longer just a casual flat, this season's oxfords come just about as fancy as any party pump — think super-shiny patents, bold metallics, and sexy cutouts — and will look just as chic with everything from mod minis to jumpsuits to your go-to leather shorts. Click through to check out 13 of our favorites, and get ready to stun in the most unpredictable (and comfortable) way possible. Don't you love it when that happens?
